Update: Judge Agrees with Teens in Pennsylvania Sexting Case

A victory for free expression!

Last week, three Pennsylvania high school students and their families brought suit against a Wyoming County prosecutor over allegations of First Amendment violations.

Yesterday, a U.S. District judge sided with the teens, and issued a temporary restraining order against the prosecutor.

The judge held that the prosecutor’s proposed action violated free speech and parental rights.

    Sending nude photographs of yourself to someone is fine as long as it doesn’t involve pornography of children. What two consenting adults do is private.

    Read the case, a U.S. District judge sided with the teens, and issued a temporary restraining order against the prosecutor. It is’t all about nudity, one of the girls was NOT nude but stood provocativly, WWHHHAAATTTT!!!! is wrong with this prosecutor. Sex offender mania went to his head. He needs to retire, he has lost his BLEEEPING mind.
