We hear a lot about sexting these days. Sexting, of course, is using a person’s cell phone, whether it’s text messaging or it may be Snapchat or something like that, to send sexual images or sexual conversations. Now of course between adults that’s consenting behavior and that’s not illegal as long as both parties are consenting.
However, where sexting is most prevalent among teenagers it is highly illegal. Even if both individuals are teenagers, you cannot send sexual images of a person under 18. If you engage in conversation with a person of a sexual nature that is under 18, that is likely to be solicitation of a minor to engage in sexual activity.
Both of them are highly illegal, but what most teenagers and parents don’t understand is that it’s illegal even if they’re both minors. So if a 17 year old boy is sexting with his 17 year old girlfriend, he is risking criminal charges and he is risking being placed on the sex offender registry.

Nashville authorities recently arrested a woman suspected of driving a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana and endangering her child after she got involved in an accident, an article of Fox 17 News reported on January 10.
Reports said 38-year-old April Davis was driving a vehicle with her 3-month-old baby when she got involved in a chain-reaction collision that affected two other vehicles. Responding police told reports that the interior of Davis vehicle had strong marijuana odor. Police later recovered a marijuana blunt inside her vehicle and found that she had been driving with an invalid license. Police also noted that the baby was not properly restrained in the car seat. Appropriate charges were filed against Davis.
