PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — State House members unanimously disapprove of teenage “sexting,” but they also believe that such a practice should not result in these youths being charged with a felony and potentially serving jail time. Prior to this new bill, the act is simply considered the electronic transmission of child pornography. House members agree that they need to find a way to have the punishment fit the crime.
Deleware County Representative Greg Vitali stands at the forefront of this bill and wants to make distinction between child pornography and the transmission of images between consenting teens. He joined KDKA Radio’s Robert Mangino to talk about the new bill.
