Sex Crimes: Sexting - Change in the Law

Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit/inappropriate messages and/or photographs primarily between mobile devices.  The new changes are now codified in Georgia's laws on sex crimes. The Georgia legislature has officially changed its law on this. The legislature just passed House Bill 156 which changes the law for teens who engage in "sexting". Before, if a teen was sexting, the teen could have been charged with child pornography under O.C.G.A. 16-12-100. Therefore, if teens sexted before this change in the law, they were prosecuted at the felony level just like any other child pornography law. Under the new law, sexting between teenagers will be classified as a misdemeanor.
