Should teenagers be charged for possessions/dissemination of child pornography if they have nude photos on their cell phones of themselves or other teens used for "sexting"?

Victim would be whose ever photos they pass around to unintended viewers, kids are mean to each other.

That should be a known risk of the activity. Kids know how these things work.

It's kids involved. Lets not make sex a crime. We have to take it in context - when its a pervy old dude trading kiddie photos that's one thing. When it's teens sexting each other, they need to learn to respect sex & each other. Teach don't punish.

Consequences. Where will they learn otherwise?

Not if its a picture of them or from the person in the picture. But the instant it's sent to a third party there should be punishment, but not something which will literally ruin their life like a sex offender charge. And there needs to be education.

Young people don't see the big picture of what they are doing when they engage in this.

So it's the State's job to...what? Fine them? Jail them? What does that do.

They should be warned and given a class about online safety

There should be some sort of penalty. I guess the juvenile system doesn't work like it used to.
