Minnesota teen faces child pornography charges for sexting
"St. Paul, Minn- The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota is supporting a 14-year-old girl charged with a felony crime for sending an explicit selfie through Snapchat to a teen boy at her school. In a brief the ACLU-MN is challenging the Rice County prosecutors' attempt to punish the teen for sexting. "To suggest that a juvenile who sends a sexually explicit selfie is a victim of her own act of child pornography is illogical," stated Teresa Nelson, Legal Director of the ACLU-MN. "Child pornography laws are supposed to protect minors from predators, and Jane Doe is not a predator." Jane Doe is charged with dissemination of child pornography. If she is found guilty, she would be forced to register as a predatory sex offender for the next ten years, and the career paths open to her as an adult could be sharply limited."
