Lawmakers Take Up Sexting Punishment Bill

February 7, 2012, 7:21 AM by Austin Hoffman

Lawmakers Take Up Sexting Punishment Bill
PIERRE, SD - It's a growing trend among high schoolers across the country, including here in KELOLAND. They're sending inappropriate pictures of themselves to each other through cell phones and other means.

Now, South Dakota lawmakers are trying to enforce a harsher punishment for what's known as "sexting."

Senate Bill 183 would make sexting a misdemeanor for minors. It would prohibit minors from creating, sending, or having images of a minor in any condition of being nude or a sexual act.

There are some exceptions in the proposed bill to allow unsolicited images to be deleted without facing punishment.

The senate judiciary committee is expected to discuss the bill at 7:30 Tuesday morning. KELOLAND News will be in the hearing and bring you the details of the discussion and decision later today.
