A 15-year-old Ohio girl faces felony charges and may have to register as a sex offender for allegedly taking nude photos of herself and sending them to her high school classmates.
Teen is now under house arrest and her cellular phone has been confiscated.
The girl, whose name has not been released, was arrested last week and charged in juvenile court with possessing criminal tools and the illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, said Licking County, Ohio, prosecutor Ken Oswalt.
Her alleged actions are part of what some in law enforcement say is a growing problem around the country.
During a court appearance this week, the teen denied the charges, according to Oswalt. The girl attends Licking Valley High School in the town of Newark. Her lawyer declined to comment.
So the laws that are in place to protect the minors as the victims can also punish said victim for making themselves the victim to begin with? Anyone else stuck in an infinite loop?

It’s marking the federal government’s current debt at about $10.2 trillion.
The guys from NPR who did that tremendous episode on This American Life called “Another Frightening Show about the Economy” (Which I really can’t say enough good things about. Go and listen to it if you want a terrific primer on what’s currently happening with the economy including the Bailout and the Stock Injection plan that was put into the revised Bailout plan) have a blog and daily podcast called Planet Money.
Get your parachutes ready. Wall Street never reacts kindly to Mr. 25%.
