The Serious Repercussions Of Sexting
Sexting is the sharing of nude or explicit photos by text message or smartphone. While Michigan doesn’t have any specific legislation around sexting, it can be prosecuted under child pornography laws. Even if the image was shared between the teenagers themselves and no adults were involved, they still may face severe charges.
Child Pornography Charges
It is also possible to be charged with child pornography if the explicit photo is shared or sent to others. Many teens don’t realize the serious ramifications of these actions and how they can have a large impact on their futures. Child pornography is defined as any depiction, including photos or video, of a person under 18 engaged in a sex act. A sex act is broadly defined to include nudity and touching of the private parts of the body.
Those convicted of making or distributing child pornography can face up to 20 years in prison and fines upward of $100,000. Those charged with possession of child pornography can receive up to four years in prison and fine up to $10,000 or both.
