Indiana Sexting Laws

By

Definition: In Indiana, sexting can result in charges of crimes against a minor and creating, possession and distribution of child pornography. If charged, defendants must automatically register for the Indiana sex offender registry. Juveniles ages 14 and old charged for sexting will be registered.

In the United States, it is against the law to possess lewd photographs of minors. A New York lawyer is petitioning for federal sexting legislation that would make sexting a misdemeanor for minors.
