Sorry Kids, No More Sexting

A new law has passed that bans the sending of sexually explicit material via text.

West Virginia passed a law that bans juveniles from ‘possessing, distributing or producing sexually inappropriate photos, videos or other media.’ The act is a delinquency charge, however the offender doesn’t have to live with that charge on their record.

The state has also started a diversion program an offender can take to have the charge removed. The program informs minors of the dangers and consequences of sexting. The program aims to prevent minors from repeating their criminal act and a way for an offender to maintain a clean record.

20 other states have similar laws. In New Jersey, sexting can require a minor register as a sex offender.

West Virginia’s sexting law goes into effect July 12.
