Criminal Charges for Texting & Sexting

San Diego Defense Attorneys

Changes in technology are having a tremendous impact on our lives. Now it is common to see phones held out to take and send photos instantly or phones held in front of children and younger adults with fingers flying as text messages are sent and received. Of concern to many is the texting of messages of a sexual nature and transmission of sexually explicit photographs between minors and to minors (sexting). Under California Penal Code 311, it is against the law to possess or distribute child pornography, including through sexting.

Although the only laws currently in existence were enacted to protect children from older sexual predators, these laws are being applied by prosecutors to restrict sexting through cell phones and other electronic devices. Conviction carries a jail or prison sentence of up to 1 to 8 years for each charge as well as other penalties and the individual's personal information will be published on the sex offender website. An experienced San Diego criminal defense lawyer from The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC is prepared to aggressively defend your rights and protect your privacy.
