What exactly is sexting?
Sexting is basically sending sexual or pornographic images via text or email. If the sender or receiver is a minor, then a crime has occurred. If the images are of someone under 18 years old, the sexting charges may turn into child pornography charges. Therefore, sexting charges can have some serious repercussions.
California Penal Code sections 288.2 forbids sending a message to a minor if the message is intended to sexually arouse or seduce the minor. The prohibition can apply to text messages, emails, letters phone calls and any other form of communication. Section 288.2 can be charged a felony or misdemeanor and result in a sentence of up to three years in prison and mandatory sex offender registration as required by California Penal Code section 290.
