Nebraska Sexting Laws

By

Definition: In Nebraska, sexting can result in felony charges, including exploitation of a child and creating, possession and distribution of child pornography.

State legislators are currently seeking to change sexting laws to dismiss defendants who send photos of themselves. However, if the photo’s recipient distributes this photo after receipt, that person can be charged with possession and distribution.

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.
