What teens need to know about sexting

As parents know, sometimes their children do not engage in the best behavior. Teens are constantly testing boundaries and making less than ideal decisions. Most of the time these decisions will not affect them for the rest of their lives, but that's not always the case. Sexting is one situation that can lead to a teenager facing criminal charges.

Many teenagers spend hours on their phone each day, making it hard for their parents to monitor everything they are doing. Teens can sometimes engage in activity that is not only lewd, it can also be illegal. Sexting, sending suggestive or nude photos to others, is a relatively new phenomenon that many teenagers are engaging in. Because teenagers are considered children, when they send nude photos of themselves it can result in child pornography charges. These charges are serious and may even be a felony depending on age and the intent of the text or electronic communication.

If a teen is finding themselves facing child pornography charges they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in sex crimes. An attorney understands what consequences their client may be facing and how important a strong legal defense can be. A teen who is convicted of a child pornography felony may face a lifetime of consequences that can affect their college choices and future employment possibilities. Parents need to understand that it is critical for their teen's legal rights to be protected and that their side of the story can be told.

Teenagers often make bad decisions, not considering the consequences that can occur. With sex crimes, the consequences can affect a teen for many years and maybe even alter their future. It is in these situations that hiring a criminal defense attorney may be the best idea.
