NJ: 14-Year-Old New Jersey Girl to Register as Sex Offender After Posting Nude Photos on Myspace?

A 14-year-old New Jersey girl is facing child pornography charges for posting almost 30 nude photos of herself on MySpace. If she is convicted, the girl may have to register as a sex offender.

According to The Daily News, this case is just one example of a larger effort by law enforcement officials across the country to crack down on child pornography. Prosecutors now routinely bring charges resulting from kids sending nude photos to one another over cell phones and e-mail. This case may be unique in that it is the first one where charges were filed based on a teen posting photos on a social networking site. Full Article

This shows the depravity – of LAWMAKERS!

If sex offender laws were created to protect “children” from sex offenders, then why is a child in danger of becoming a sex offender? There is no victim here therefore there is no crime. N’est-ce pas?

I am rolling on the floor Janice, well put… Are these people real??? Maybe they are hiding their own iniquities!!! Boy would I like to see what’s in their closet, Hmmmm! Are they so sightless and oblivious??? The fact is that they are providing us with additional ammunition for our cause. I confidently project that we are on our way to victory. Maybe we should send them thank you notes. Our vision is coming true because of Janice’s diligence; these people are throwing darts at metal balloons. If we continue to amalgamate in strength, we can amass a very large diverse group to impact them with law suits and costs beyond their comprehension. After 30 years I see a hope and freedom we all deserve as citizens of the greatest country, the world has ever seen. God Bless America and its Constitution… Oh you too Janice thank you…

Why not? This is no more absurd than putting the 20-year old young man from South Carolina in prison for a year and a half and on the registry for life for taking a video of himself and his legal-age girlfriend, with her knowledge and consent.

At the end of the day, the law is the law. I have a big problem with selected enforcement of the law. Just like the parks ordinance in Huntington Beach.

If the law turns out to be bad and backfires – change it, at least for the future. Or don’t pass stupid laws in the first place!

This is way more absurd given the age of the subject. She needs counseling, healing and the community to find ways to help people of that age so they can understand what is motivating those actions. She doesn’t need to be attacked by the DA and have her life ruined to further anyone’s political or ideological agendas. I don’t disagree with you on the larger issue of these pointless and harmful statutes, but this child is her own victim in essence and somewhere in the law, there needs to be refuge and healing for children like these. She may be have been a victim herself in order to be acting out this way. These are the nested scenarios that have to be rooted out of the statutes and replaced with therapeutic remedies.

J… you are spot on my brother…. wow good word…

Yes all this makes sense…. soon the world shall be on the registry.. mawhahahaha *evil laugh*

I’m almost surprised they didn’t go after MySpace for possession of child pornography. After all, if the photos were on the computers in their possession, isn’t that possession of child pornography? After all, if my daughter were to take nude photos of herself and store them on my computer unbeknownst to me, then it was later found the photos were on MY computer, I would be arrested and charged.

well where were her parents

???

Sorry, I can’t hear any of you over the sound of the fire burning the bathtub pics my parents took of me in 1966.

I’m not taking any chances!
