Adults nude photos
Finally, an adult that shares nude or sexual photos of another adult without his or her permission or who sends unwanted sexts to another person could be charged with harassment or sued in civil court for causing emotional distress or other damage.
One common scenario is an ex-boyfriend who distributes private photos in an effort to get back at his ex-girlfriend.
Time and again, people have been arrested and convicted for sex crimes after they strike up a conversation online with an officer posing as a 15-year-old girl on social media or in a chat room and ask the “girl” to share nude photos of herself.
Second, an adult who sends a nude or sexual photo of him or herself to a child could also be convicted of a crime.
Child pornography laws can be very harsh; many impose years in prison for each image.
Furthermore, in almost all states, adults convicted of child pornography offenses are required to register as sex offenders.
For example, a school teacher who sends a photo of his genitals to a students could be convicted of disseminating obscenity.First, an adult who receives or shares a nude or sexual image of a child under the age of 18 can be charged with possessing or sending child pornography.Some states have enacted defenses against child pornography charges for (sometimes including kids up to 19 years old) who engage in sexting, but such defenses do not apply to older adults.A trial court dismissed the charges in May 2016 on the basis that the state's dissemination statute was vague because the age of consent to sexual activity in Indiana is 16. The FBI notified the Fishers Police Department of the incident.The dismissal was upheld by the Indiana Court of Appeals in February and transferred to the Indiana Supreme Court this May. Thakar admitted to Fishers police that he had a problem chatting online and said he knew why investigators were asking about the girl from Oregon, according to court documents.
