Sexting

Sexting, simply put, is sending or receiving sexually explicit text messages with a mobile device. These messages can be words, images, videos, or all of the above. As widespread users of mobile phones and other devices, teens have received significant attention for sexting.

The problem is that a teen (or anyone else) can get in hot water by sexting.

Types of Sexting Crimes in Maryland

Different types of sexting crimes in Maryland include:

  • Child pornography. Having sexually-explicit text messages of minors on a mobile device can lead to child pornography charges for creation, possession, and distribution. Even minors themselves can get charged.
  • Exploitation of a minor. Sending a sexually explicit or suggestive text message to a minor can result in child sexual abuse charges.

The simple act of sending a text to another person can have unintended consequences, given that words, images, and videos can easily be shared and distributed online.

Even teens and juveniles can face felony child pornography charges because of sexting. After a charge for sexting in Baltimore or the other areas in the State of Maryland, then contact the attorneys at James E. Crawford, Jr. & Associates.
