People need to get over themselves and stop with Abstinence only, and Teach REAL sex education, Teach about condoms and teach about the repercussions of sex and having a baby and disease, and that sex is ok and why its good to wait, rather than just don't do it and sex is taboo to talk about. I understand the importance of religion and how different cultures are with this topic, but its mainly because its an impure topic.... but really you really want kids to understand TEACH THEM ABOUT IT!!!

Can you clarify how this comment has anything to do with this discussion? Unless your argument is that the kids are so repressed sexually due to the "abstinence only" sex education that they're sexting. And I'm not sure I would buy that argument.

Back on topic, the more details that come out, the more it seems like the DA is trying to blackmail the students into compliance. At one point, I almost sympathized with the DA because I thought he was desperately trying to solve an issue by shocking the families with an "over the top" tactic. That this was just a drastic wake-up call.

But the more he pursues this, the more I'm starting to agree with Stormfalcon that he just wants to make a name for himself. Yes, I know I'm too naive sometimes, wanting to believe not all people are are so self-serving. Sigh.

Looks like students aren't the only ones getting caught up in this growing witch hunt.

'Sexting' Hysteria Falsely Brands Educator as Child Pornographer, reported over on Wired.

To sum up, an assistant principal gets felony child pornography charges leveled at him when he has a photo transferred to him in the course of his investigating the whole sexting thing at his school.  Eventually, the charges get dropped when the judge rules that the photo didn't count as child pornography (private areas were covered), but it left him with a mountain of debt from his legal bills and a trashed reputation.  While it is true that he may have screwed up in not reporting the picture to the authorities when he came across it, the DA in this case went way too far and was out for blood.

And people think that it's a good idea to unleash this kind of treatment on kids who are simply being stupid?  Yeah, they need to be taught that they shouldn't be putting pictures of themselves on the Internet like that, but what we're seeing is beyond overkill.

I think a nice fine would do nicely.  Namely something in the $300-500 range.
Registered as a sex offender is extremely overkill, a misdemeanor on their record could be reasonable.

The DA in the case is probably looking to play off the fears of the problem rather than actually solving the problem.

I meant that people who would do those might be in a long distance relationship. I wasn't commenting about the students about what they were already doing.

The issue at hand is that this is occurring within a school, not across a country.  It's understandable for a couple across the country, which is often what webcams are used for.  Spamming it throughout your class to people you have no sort of intimate relations with, wtf?  That's just putting yourself out there as a piece of meat.
