St. Louis, MO (WiredPRNews.com) Parental Solutions, LLC, the maker of a parental monitoring application for mobile phones called Mobile Media Guard, today announced the launch of an informational section on its website which summarizes individual state “sexting” laws.
A growing trend among teenagers, sexting is an act where inappropriate images and videos are exchanged via mobile phones. The sexting practice has lawmakers across the country in uncharted territory as they scramble to determine if new laws and regulations are necessary. Lawmakers are considering, for example, whether minors should be subject to the strict child pornography laws that could apply when sexting between minors occurs.
“Sexting between minors has caught lawmakers off-guard,” said Craig Spenner, Co-Founder of Parental Solutions, LLC. “Technology has moved faster than the legal system, and lawmakers are now searching for the right balance between crime and punishment.”
Available at MobileMediaGuard.com, the state law summary provides parents, school administrators, police departments, parental organizations and concerned citizens a brief summary of each state’s law, the latest news and worst case punishments under current laws.
“Our goal is awareness and education,” Mr. Spenner explained. “We’ve developed a resource where anyone impacted by or trying to prevent sexting can obtain information about what’s happening across the country. From facing embarrassing situations, child pornography charges and/or criminal or even civil lawsuits, the repercussions of sexting are frightening and real.”
