Sexting can be defined as sending sexual or pornographic images or videos through email messages. If either the sender or the receiver is an underage individual, it is deemed as a crime. Furthermore, if the images or videos are also showing a minor, the sexting charges could be transformed into child porn charges. Hence, sexting charges could be quite serious.
California Penal Code Section 288.2 forbids sending messages to a minor if those messages are intended to seduce or sexually arouse that minor. This prohibition could be applied to all text messages, emails, phone calls, letters as well as any other means of communication. Section 288.2 could be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor and could lead to up to 3 years in prison along with the mandatory sex offender registration that is required by the California Penal Code Section 290.
