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.
