In general, a teenager, who creates, distributes or possesses a sexually explicit image, could be charged with a misdemeanor or felony depending on the facts and circumstances.

If convicted for a felony, the sentence could be up to 20 years in prison, and the teenager’s name would appear on Georgia's sex offender registry for at least 15 years.

I'm tired of hearing from concerned friends that I could possibly send him to jail. ): To Miss Athena, I would like to inform you..you sound....completely ignorant.

If being together means hes risking his freedom, I want to know asap. Yes, there are those few predators our there who only prey on us "little girls" for our bodies.

For starters, a law takes effect limiting how much lobbyists can spend on state lawmakers.

They're basically banned from spending more than at a time and from giving lawmakers free tickets to games, concerts and other recreational events.

Then as now, two teens having consensual sex is understandable. The difference between the two situations would seem obvious. S., legally speaking, there’s little distinction between Romeo and Juliet's mutual decision and the abusive actions of a child molester.

An older teen who has sex with his younger girlfriend can be arrested, prosecuted, and jailed for the act.

I'm currently dating a guy named, "Bob", and he turned 18 on March 29th.

Lawmakers want to criminalize sexting but recognize that when sexting occurs between minors it is generally not to engage in child pornography and generally there should not be a need to register as a sex offender. Until this bill, or another bill that may address sexting, is signed into law teenagers who send explicit images of a minor could be prosecuted under the State’s child pornography laws.

There is a similar provision of the law that deals with verbal descriptions between a minor and an adult that are sexual in nature.

I was wondering what exactly are the laws about this. We've been dating since last year, February 3rd.

I'm currently 15 years old, and I will be 16 on November 25th.
