As of October 1, 2011, any minor who is caught sending, possessing, or creating nude images of a minor can be charged with a non-criminal violation for their first offense and subject to a fine or 8 hours of community service as well as required to attend training or instructional classes on the dangers of sexting.Until October, or for those teens who are not considered minors, under Florida law the creation, distribution or possession of images of a minor engaged in a sexually explicit act may be prosecuted under the State’s child pornography laws and if convicted, may serve up to 15 years in jail and be required to register as a sex offender.
Keep in mind that the laws may be different depending on the type of sexual behavior—vaginal, anal or oral—and the gender of your partner. 10.“Minors’ Access to Contraceptive Services,” State Policies in Brief, The Alan Guttmacher Institute. 11.“Emergency Contraception,” State Policies in Brief, The Alan Guttmacher Institute. 12.“Emergency Room Requirements To Offer/Provide Sexual Assault Survivors with Emergency Contraception.” Henry J.
A circuit court has jurisdiction to remove the disabilities of nonage of a minor age 16 or older residing in this state upon a petition filed by the minor’s natural or legal guardian or, if there is none, by a guardian ad litem.
A statement of the minor’s character, habits, education, income, and mental capacity for business, and an explanation of how the needs of the minor with respect to food, shelter, clothing, medical care, and other necessities will be met.
Any images sent or received within a 24 hour period will be treated as one offense.
In addition, a minor who is sent improper images and (i) did not solicit the images, (ii) took reasonable steps to report the images to a parent, guardian, school official or law enforcement officer, and (iii) did not distribute the image, then the minor will not be charged with a sexting offense.
