Sexting is a relatively new phenomenon that involves the transmission of sexually explicit photos via a mobile phone. While it may seem innocent enough, this activity may be illegal if the participants are under the age of 18.
At Jack Venturi Law, we defend high school students, college students and other individuals who have been charged with sexting or related sex crimes. To speak to a New Jersey sexting defense lawyer from our firm, please contact us online or call 732-247-3340.
If your child has been accused of a crime it is important that neither you or your children answer questions, make statements or consent to searches by law enforcement.

Sexting laws can be especially tricky depending on the age of the parties involved. If a 15-year-old sends a sexually explicit photo to a 17-year-old, he or she may face distribution of child pornography charges. The 17-year-old may be charged with possession of child pornography. If the 17-year-old passes the message on to another recipient, he or she may be charged with distribution of child pornography.
The long-term effects of a sex crime conviction can be devastating on the life of a minor. Consequences may include jail or prison time, large fines, registration as a sex offender and more. In addition, the stigma of a sex crime conviction may haunt a minor for years to come, personally, academically and professionally.
If your child has been charged with a sex crime, contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. To schedule a free consultation at our New Brunswick law office, please contact an attorney online today.
