Juvenile Sex Crimes
Your child could have sent an explicit picture via text message as joke. However, the law does not see this as a joke. These and other Internet sex crimes carry very serious criminal consequences. A juvenile can be tried as an adult for serious crimes such as rape, sodomy and sexual abuse.
Other juvenile sex crimes can include:
- Date rape
- Statutory rape
- Sexual assault
- Sexting (texting explicit photos)
- Indecent exposure
