Becoming a sexual predator ... against yourself


From Classically Liberal, here we have the ultimate victimless crime:

In Newark, Ohio a 15-year-old girl has been arrested by police on charges of child pornography. Both the girl and her victim have not been identified but they are one in same person. Yes, police arrested the girl for sexually exploiting herself because she took a nude photograph of herself.

She has been charged with the “illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material and possession of criminal tools.” I assume the tool was the phone camera used to take the photo. The girl could be imprisoned and force to register as a sex offender. If she is forced to register the on-line listings will simply show that she had produced child pornography leading public readers to assume she had sexually exploited young children. Since being listed on these registries have lead to the murder of various individuals this arrest could eventually put the girl’s life at risk. All because she took a nude photo of herself.

Prosecutors are not finished by any means. The girl in question sent the photo to the phone of a few friends and prosecutors are now considering arresting the other teens for receiving “child pornography”.


All I can think of here is that it's sure good that teen hottie Vanessa Hudgens didn't live in Ohio when she sent co-star and boyfriend Zac Efron those nekkie pics of herself...

A most bizarre and outrageous affront to decency and sensibility. I don't understand how a person's property in her own body can be held to nothing.

It's a damn good thing she didn't masturbate herself as well. Otherwise she might have been charged w/ unlawful sexual contact.

You know, Dana, I hadn't thought about that--I bet she could even have managed to violate some sodomy laws if she'd had toys....

Yet the Sheriff of Canton, Ohio gets away with molesting young ladies, i.e Hope Steffy and others.

The only thing that can be more bizarro is if they bump her up to adult court and house her in his jail.

I'm sure he has already put in a request. rc
