Police in Pennsylvania said six high school students are facing pornography charges after three girls sent photos of themselves via cell phones.
Greensburg police said the three female Greensburg-Salem High School students, ages 14 and 15, have been charged in Westmoreland County with manufacturing, disseminating or possessing child pornography after they allegedly took pictures of themselves -- two of the girls nude, the other semi-nude -- with their cell phones and sent them to other students, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Tuesday.

As heard on Chris Plante
i keep seeing these cases. altho i do not condone these teeny boppers taking nude pics of them selves, i don’t see why they’re charged with child porn for having pics of themselves.
And they'll be registered sex offenders and this will follow them for the rest of their lives.
But, hey, we'll teach 'em a lesson, right?
I agree. This is an issue for the parents, not the Govt.
I'm interested in getting a pornography plan for my phone, and I'd even concede to a youthful oriented one like described above, if that was all that was available.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm with AT&T and have a Samsung Blackjack if that matters, and I'd kind of not like to switch providers.
I agree. I think the laws need to be adjusted to reflect the fact that nude pictures are being taken and distributed by the underage subjects themselves.
its all in the name of criminalizing america....anything they can make up to charge you with and get you in the system.....
Exactly, this was not the intended targets of these laws when they were passed.
They’re going to need to hire more cops if they expect to keep up with today’s kids...
We are becoming Great Britain.
I can go to the mall in the summer time and get a “peep” show.
That's the plan.
It's easier to manage convicts than it is to manage citizens.
How we gonna keep them down on the farm after they get cell phones (and a new messiah)?
If the government were smart (huh?) , they would call a mandatory parent meeting and inform them of the situation complete with full sized (edited) photos that have been discovered. Send mailers home as well.
“These are your kids that are being photographed. These pictures make it to the web where pedophiles eagerly seek sick gratification at the expense of what your child thinks is harmless fun. Please go home and check your child's phone and computer. Please discuss the legal and social ramifications associated with this behavior. Please monitor and protect your children in the interest of their own safety, self respect and character.”
Let the parents deal with it and come down hard on repeat offenders with school discipline. If you have a chronic problem with a student, congrats, you may have just detected problem that will go into adulthood.
i also heard yesterday that the ones in receipt of the pics they girls sent out will also be charged with possession of child porn...........
It's entirely possible (I don't know anything about the laws in PA) that these boys could have sex with the girls and it wouldn't be statutory rape. If that's the case, then this goes beyond silly.
