House Bill 473 – Minors – nude photos by cell phone – prohibit exchange

Sponsor: Representative Pillich

Committee: Public Safety & Homeland Security

Synopsis: The bill would prohibit the practice engaged in by some minors of sending or forwarding nude photos of themselves or of others via mobile technology.  It would create the offense as a first degree misdemeanor, instead of placing the minor in the sexually oriented offender category.  There would be no defense against the charge if the images were of the minor themselves.
