    LIL GIRL made a great argument. If a 17 years old lady sends her nude pictures to a 19 years old guy, he will have child porn pics in his phone – is this correct? He, being an adult, will be arrested for possession of child porn – is this correct?
    Now, is she going to be arrested for disseminating child porn by sending her own nude pictures?

    We don’t know any of the details from this article. Please don’t assume the girl sent anything, because the article doesn’t say that. All the article says is that he was attempting to possess child pornography, and that there were some pictures (we don’t know of whom). This probably was a difficult decision to come forward for all involved, and we are making a lot of assumptions about people that may have no basis in fact.

    A high school senior can date a freshman and nothing will be said. A 19 year old dates a senior and it’s child abuse?

    I also agree with Mike 100%..
    I’m a mother and love my children more then anything in the world. Come on folks if the law in Al will trial you as Adult at 17 and let you drop out of school without your parents permission at 16 then I cant see where you can charge this boy(Yes I said boy) cause he is only one year over the so called adult age and her a year under in mind set NO Difference then she needs to be also charged as an adult for sending graphic photos via cellphone or internet..Then maybe Her parents will find out this wasn’t her first rodeo and let her get with the next real criminal or drug addict/dealer. Hopefully his life isn’t ruin and leave this LIL GIRL alone for her parents to raise.

    Thanks Robert for clarifying these laws for old folks. If it’s against the law to solicit nude pictures, why is it legal to make nude selfies and send them? If the age of consent in Alabama is really 16 and not 18 – seems punishment in this case should go both ways.

    I hope this is a much needed wake up call to young men. Asking someone for nude pics is sexual harassment and against the law. If you get these pictures sent to you and the victim is under 18, you possess child pornography.

    We all as men really need to step up our character and treat women with respect, just like we would our mother and sister.

    If Mike is correct and it is true that the “child” is 17+ years old and he is 19 molestation are ridiculous charges. Disgruntled parents or a consentual relationship gone sour would be behind this frivolent accusation. I have a 17 year old granddaughter and would not believe for one minute that any 19 year old kid made her do something she did not want to do. Wake up people and use common sense!

    I believe the age of consent in Alabama is 16.. Just don’t take pictures..

    So, he is 19 and his victim of “child abuse” is under 18. A 1.5 years difference, and he is an adult abusing a child? Come on folks, where is the common sense?

    Photos of a 17.5 years old is a child pornography?? I guess a sharp change happens on the 18th Birthday. Her body does not change on that day, but if you had her picture a day before, you had child pornography, the day after you are fine.

    A 60 years old molesting a 10 years old is obviously a child abuse, but a couple whose birthdays are a 1.5 years apart???
