When Explicit Photos Are Sent From Phone To Phone

To many young people, "sexting" (sending sexually explicit photographs via text message, Snapchat or other social media) seems like a victimless crime. Worse yet is the lack of information made available to young people about who can be prosecuted for these crimes.

Any person, regardless of age, who sends a sexually explicit photograph of a minor may be prosecuted for both possession and distribution of child pornography. This is true even if both the sender and the receiver are minors. It is also true even if the photo was taken voluntarily, depicts only the sender and both parties were agreeable to the exchange of the photograph.

In California, a person who possesses or sends sexually explicit material can be arrested for a felony, and if convicted, can be punished by up to three years in state prison, receive a large fine or both.
