International News, News

Teens between 14 and 17 years of age in the US state of New Mexico can now freely exchange nude pictures via phone without the fear of punishment. Earlier this practice could have landed them jail due to child abuse and child pornography charges even if the exchange was consensual. Democrat senator of New Mexico George Muñoz who demanded the amendment in child pornography act says, “Kids will be kids, and they’re going to make mistakes. You can’t punish them for the rest of their lifetime with a charge of child pornography… if they’re consensually sending photos back and forth.”

The state’s attorney general Susana Martinez thumped the bill saying, “I don’t support the so-called ‘sexting’ amendment, as I believe the reasoning behind it is misinformed and it was not carefully considered.” The author of the Assembly Bill 2536 Ed Chau said in an interview, “Sexting has real consequences. You basically have a sexting issue and then that issue is exacerbated by the proliferation of these smartphones.”
