Can Teens Be Prosecuted for Child Pornography When They Send Nude Selfies?
When your teenager sends a nude selfie can they be charged with child pornography? In other words, can you be both a victim AND a perpetrator?
The answer: It depends.
Are they sending the naked selfie to another minor?
Are they sending the naked selfie to an adult, but harassing them?
Depends on which state you live in and if you can be prosecuted as an adult at 16 years of age.
It’s really important to talk to your teen about naked selfies so they don’t have to learn about the consequences the hard way!
