Miami Sexting Lawyer

Miami Criminal Defense Lawyer

In the past several years, scrutiny of sexting – or distributing explicit nude photographs using a computer or any electronic device – has intensified dramatically. In 2011, Florida joined in national efforts to stamp out sexting offenses by drafting new legislation and new penalty guidelines that specifically focus on minor offenders.

This reflects a growing trend that focuses on correcting problems and behaviors, rather than unjustly punishing those under the age of 18 and subjecting them to long-term penalties for youthful mistakes.

What Is Sexting?

According to Title XLVI § 847.0141 of the Florida statutes, a minor commits a sexting offense if he or she knowingly:

  • Uses an electronic device to transmit or distribute nude photos or video to another minor;
  • Possesses a nude video or photo of transmitted by another

If a minor did not solicit explicit materials, made reasonable steps to report the materials, or did not transmit or distribute the explicit materials to another party, they will be considered to have not violated the law.

What Are the Penalties for Sexting?

Depending on the circumstances involved, defendants may face a range of charges and penalties for committing this sex crime. Generally, convictions for a first offense can subject defendants to community service, fines, and court ordered classes. Multiple offenses can increase the severity of these allegations, with possible third-degree felony charges for a third offense.
