  • Self child porn? Wha?

    Kinda funny. Two kids, 16 and 17, take sexual pictures of themselves. Cops somehow get ahold of the pictures, both are prosecuted for distributing child porn.

    According to Florida law, if they just had sex it'd be okay. But documenting it is a no no. Laughing here, I am, especially at some of the judges' reasoning.

    Interesting case really. As the parent of a 15 y/o I can attest that he's not so great at making well informed decisions. I can see the logic of the state's position in trying to protect the teenagers from their own bad decisions...This case of course is rather benign. Two teens having consensual sex. What if it was one teen, taking pictures of him/herself and then trying to sell them to profit. That teen has got to be protected from that bad decision as they're not of age. After they're of age let them make their mistakes and pay for it.

    Yet, as the dissenting judge pointed out the law was created to protect underage constituents from abuse by OTHERS. I wonder what the punishment will be.

      So do Florida taxpayers have to pay for this trial? The case should be dropped and the money saved for a real issue.

          Won't someone please think of the children and help protect them by labeling them as sex offenders!

                    This is just a funny thread to read, funnier than the actual story.

                      There is certainly an interesting dilemma here. This seems to be more of an exploitation of the legal system in order to injure this man's reputation. I would assume since these photos were taken together, the woman also had given consent to have these photos taken? The article really is unclear on this. I don't think we really know enough information to judge this case. How did these photos end up with the police? That's really critical.

                        Article didn't say how the police got the pictures, but I'm sure the parents had a hand in it.

                        As far as consent goes, remember that she was 16 and not legally able to consent to anything according to the law. I agree though, this seems to be one heck of a loophole exploitation. Wouldn't be surprised if it's the parents' way of totally destroying the boyfriend that they dislike.

                          Wouldn't the girl be just as guilty?

                            Most sex-crime laws are highly gender biased, so no, she won't be as guilty. I think she still gets some punishment though.

                              Looks like they're both getting screwed?
