Australia: sexting law to spare children from child porn charges

18:09 Dec 30 2015 Victoria, Australia

Children who share sexual images of themselves will avoid being charged with child pornography offences under legislation being drafted by the South Australian Government.

Under current laws, minors who 'sext' could face child porn pornography charges.

But under the changes, a new filming and sexting offence would be created for those under the age of 17 to prevent minors from potentially being listed on the Child Sex Offender Register.
