Chidren who Perpetrate Pornography: You are not immune to the criminal justice system.

There is no question bullying through cyberspace has become increasingly overwhelming and no doubt troublesome.  The term Cyberbullying is used to associate kids bullying other kids through the use of social mediums such as Facebook, twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube to name a few. Cyberbullying can also be conducted though cell phones.  Kids take pictures or video of other children through their cellphone, mocking them or creating fictitious headlines.  Once these video  pictures are uploaded into the perpetrators phone, the bully then can create  a viral scenario where these pictures or videos can be sent to a list of thousands of contacts.  Another words these actions can spread like viruses. Sexting is another dangerous issues.  What is done between to consenting adults is just that.  Of course there can be problems but the real problem is when naked pictures of kids or children having sex is recorded and whether there is permission or not permission if the perpetrator or person responsible for uploading the vidoes or pics send them over the internet or cell phone, the issue then becomes child pornography.  And here is the kicker.  If you are a 10 or 15 year s old and you are sending pics through your cell or the internet of your private parts or another person's private areas or sexual pictures, you at the age of 12 or 15 can possibly be charged with child pornography.  The thing that matters in this case, is the age of the victim.  Not the age of the person sending the pornography.  The  criminal punishment for these actions can be incarceration for many years depending if it is a juvenile or adult sentence.  College Kids and teens think by perpetrating these acts, it is a way to gain popularity or acceptance.  But the only thing these children will be accepted  in is possibly a very harsh criminal sentence.
