    Teens send nude pics to one other, face kiddie porn charges

    By Jacqui Cheng | Published: January 14, 2009 - 09:20PM CT

    There are a number of reasons to think twice (or three times, or four times, or fifty times) before sending a nude photo of yourself to someone electronically. But, if you're under the age of 18, there's at least one big, glaring, serious reason: you and the recipient could be charged with trafficking child pornography. If you think this sounds crazy, it is exactly what happened in Greensburg, Pennsylvania after two teenage girls send nude photos to some teenage boys.

    Two girls from Greensburg, who police say are "14 or 15" years old, allegedly sent nude photos to two boys who are slightly older than them (16 or 17) using their cell phones. The photos were discovered in October after one of the youngsters was caught using a cell phone during school hours—a violation of school rules—and had the phone taken away. The photos were discovered at that time—I didn't know teachers could go snooping through your cell phone, either—and turned over to police.

    "It was a self portrait taken of a juvenile female taking pictures of her body, nude," Greensburg Police Department captain George Seranko told WPXI News. "Taking nude pictures of yourself, nothing good can come out of it."

    This might seem like a one-off story, but last month, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy released survey results that said 20 percent of all teens have sent a nude photo of themselves to someone else electronically.

    This has been a real problem in the schools here locally . . . . I think it's a bit much to charge those who just receive these pics with child pornography - unless they asked for the pics . . . .:(
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    That's one of the those weird things about the child porn laws, you are guilty of the crime just for possessing a pic whether you knew the person in it was underage or not. I heard tale of some guy who had some pics of what he thought were girls in their early twenties. Someone at some computer repair place recognized one of the photos as an under age Tracy Lords (she was 16)... busted! Possession is all it takes to breach the law. Almost all nude pictures and all but one movie of Tracy Lords is considered child pornography.

    So... then why aren't kids who have sex charged with pedophilia?

    Cop to boy: "You're under arrest for having sex with an underaged girl."
    Cop to girl: "You're under arrest for having sex with an underaged boy."

    Shouldn't both, then, be prosecuted and have to register as sex offenders?
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!

    OKAY - lets get some accurate information out there on this issue - PEDOPHILIA requires the minor involved to be prepubescent. Once the minor is past the onset of puberty the terms is EPHEBOPHILIA.

    Secondly - both PEDOPHILIA and EPHEBOPHILIA by definition are attractions towards minors by adults or older teens.

    sokay. As a former victim of child sexual abuse - it's a pet peeve.

    This is a parenting issue, NOT a law enforcement issue.

    God, I'm sick of this country going down the road of making EVERYTHING a criminal issue.
    I like to shoot people with my CANON.

    Here's more weirdness. Two underage children have sex... it is not crime. Two underage kids have pictures of each other naked then both can be charged for possessing child pornography and become registered sex offenders...
