Sexting penalties for teens too severe, some states say

We as a nation have some 95,000 or so kids locked up in Juvenile facilities. Florida has more kids locked up in prisons than the rest of the nation combined. Our legislatures come up with some wonderful laws designed for 10 second sound bytes on TV and radio but all too often end up doing more damage than the problems they were intended to remedy. This is especially true of minors who text pictures of themselves being accused and charged with distributing of child pornography. There needs to be some serious middle ground and there is none. Too many are going to prison. Follow the link for a rather good analysis of this situation. http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_18260656
