Teens Engage in Sexting With Little Knowledge of Legal Consequences

Teenagers are found to be 'sexting' without being aware of the legal consequences of engaging in such an activity.

Some of the teenagers who are aware of the serious legal consequences still engage in 'sexting', throwing caution to the winds.

Teens that send or receive nude pictures of individuals under 18, can be booked for possession or distribution of child pornography.

This can cause them to be penalized and they can even be listed in the sex offenders register.

Teens can also become victims of serious psychological problems if they are caught or even if they are part of the sexually explicit photos transmitted in the group.
