SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Laws applying to sexting are evolving

Before the days of cell phones and other mobile devices, life was easier in some ways. For example, there was no concern about using this type of technology for wrongdoing.

Today, mobile devices are generally considered a benefit. However, it is important to realize that this technology can also have a negative impact on society.

Sexting continues to grow in popularity. In short, this is the transmission of suggestive material, such as nude images, via text messages.

At this time, there are not many criminal laws associated with sexting. Even so, it is possible for this action to lead to criminal charges. For example, if sexting involves a minor or images of a minor, it can fall under child pornography laws.

As this issue continues to become bigger and bigger, some legislation is being drafted to deal specifically with sexting. However, some lawmakers want to crack down harder on this than others.

Sexting is not always a crime, but there are times when it is considered as such. With evolving laws, things are soon to change in regards to sexting and how it is handled by the authorities.

Since there is so much gray area associated with sexting, it is possible for a person to commit a crime without realizing they have done so. It is also possible for police to charge somebody with a crime that they did not commit.

If a person is charged with a crime in relation to sexting, it is essential for him or her to learn more about the laws that are currently in place.
