Students Sue Prosector in Cellphone Photos Case - NYTimes.comBetween a rock and a hard place...the laws are either too hot or too cold and nothing is just right. Prosecutors have some discretion, but generally the kids who pass around images can be charged with state or federal harrassment misdemeanors or felonies (often a slap on the wrist) or with sexual exploitation of minors (child porn crimes). The conviction under the sex crimes often means their becoming a registered sex offender.
I would have thought that mandatory counseling would be a good approach rather than sex crime conviction.
what do we do?
