15-Year-Old Girl Faces Child Porn Charges for Nude Cell Phone Pictures of Herself

  Central Ohio authorities have filed felony charges against a 15-year-old girl accused of taking nude cell phone photos of herself and sending them to high school classmates.

Police say the Newark Licking Valley student was arrested Friday and held over the weekend. On Monday, she entered denials to juvenile charges of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and possession of criminal tools.


WAIT WAIT WAIT. Now let's apply Logic 101 here. If the girl isn't old enough to decide to do this herself; then how is she old enough to prosecute with a felony? Furthermore, how in flying hell can a person be charged -regardless of age- with pictures of THEMSELVES???

Oh wait.  Sorry 12.  What I meant to say was.  I agree.  It's dumb.

I can't imagine if they started charging the kids at my school for that.  Might make my job alot easier.

This story doesn't shock me much, I'm convinced that it happens all the time in high schools.

Detta, don't you teach at the 8th grade level?

Oh Im sure the pic sharing happens alla time; what kills me though is *anyone* being charged with possesion of pics of THEMSELVES; in addition to the UNfair application of the law- she's a minor, so having the pics is (?somehow) illegal; but she's a minor, so we charge her with a FELONY???
This whole case is totally fukt. I'd request a trial by jury for sure, if it was me.
 Ask if they feel its justified to ruin a 15 year old's life because she had pics of herself.

There was an additional bit in the article I read this afternoon.  "The authorities are still determining whether they will charge the people who RECEIVED the pictures".  Possible charges because you received a text message?  WHA???   :-o

Yep. Well, in that case, though, they're in possession of (nude) pics of a minor. I can understand some action in that aspect of the case. But to be prosecuted with a felony for having pics of YOURSELF is absurd. Regardless of pose, clothing, setting, etc., OR what you do with them; barring "Indecent Exposure", and for that one of the recipients would have had to have filed a complaint; otherwise it's known as "sharing". Here I am assuming, of course, but the idea that one of the kids getting the pics was offended is laughable at best; that they filed a complaint is downright ludicrous. If one of the parents filed a complaint it changes things a bit; but I still fail to see the gains in felony charges against the girl.

If she was good-looking, no one would have complained about receiving the pictures. Now on the other hand, if she wasn't...

If laws were based on principles they would have some logical consistency by default.  I think this is what happens you when start passing laws to patchwork certain specific situations.  Unintended consequences.

Cherubim is plural; Genesis 3:24 specifies one flaming sword. Presumably flaming swords were in short supply."

Nah, high school.  I started the year with two preggers.  It was awesome.  I'm down to one now.

Women should probably all be charged with something since so many babies go through their vaginas. You ladies are sick, sick I tell you.

That's not fair. Just because my friend wanted to show me her nude body, I'LL get trouble? Logically you could send random pictures of naked kids to people and get them thrown in jail.

That's so sad that a mother had to threaten someone to go out with her daughter.  :-(

I'd be more concerned over what you are doing with pictures of naked kids in the first place.
