Random adult chatting
Sex offenders must provide their personal information to police officers, who may make the information public.Failing to register when required to do so is also a crime.
Second, an adult who sends a nude or sexual photo of him or herself to a child could also be convicted of a crime.
Usually, child enticement convictions also result in sex offender registration. In some states, these crimes are misdemeanors (punishable in most states by up to one year in jail).
In other states, these crimes may be felonies (punishable by one year or more in state prison).
States' requirements on sex offender registration also differ for obscenity convictions.
If you are charged with a crime as a result of sexting, you should talk to a local attorney.
