Foxnews: A 15-year-old girl from central Pennsylvania faces child pornography charges after police say she sent nude pictures of herself over the Internet.

Clearfield County District Attorney William Shaw says the girl has been charged as a juvenile with possessing, distributing and creating child pornography.

The girl is living with her mother. Authorities say the girl sent the pictures after communicating in June 2007 with a 27-year-old man over the MySpace networking Web site.

The practice has been called "sexting" for the prevalence of teens to transmit images via a cell phone.

Shaw says the man has also been charged with unlawful sexual activity. State police found the images on the man's computer.

What in the world is going on? Do these children not realize that one day this will all come back to haunt them? And where are the parents while this child is photographing herself nude? This is just disturbing. This whole mess. I fear for my daughter because I think the worse is yet to come…

oh for the love of god, shouldn’t the 27 yr old be the one to get in trouble.It was pictures of herself, its not like she was violating other people. Next thing you know we’re going to hear a 16 yr old is arrested for being caught with a vibrator b/c she is raping herself

Why are they charging the 15 year old with a crime? For starter do we own our own bodies or not? It may have been a bad choice to make but it is her body. The bigger problem is a 27 year old man talking to the 15 year old, assuming he new she was that young.

As for Shocked’s response; of course they don’t realize they are kids, it the job of adults to help them realize such things.

can’t wait until my daughter asks for a cell phone! How many responsible parents are going to get there kids ‘camera’ phones after all these stories? (Do they make non-camera phones anymore), and in response to Bec (not to be argumentative), minors have very diminished rights and especially when it comes to creating and distributing child porn, we all do.
