House Ignores Sexting Bill

April 30th, 2010 by flanews

With the House spending more than two hours debating the abortion legislation, dozens of bills that passed the senate are being ignored. A bill that would lessen penalties for teens caught emailing or texting nude pictures of themselves or their peers, an offense known as sexting, is one of those bills. Bill Sponsor Dave Aronberg is upset that the House is delaying the measure.

“If they didn’t take up these controversial social issues on the last few days we could get through all these good bills, but instead they have to make political points by bring up abortion, meanwhile good bills are dying. This is an important issue,” said Aronberg.

If a teen is caught sexting now, he or she can be charged with a felony and be forced to register as a sex offender for their rest of their lives.
