By Mark Theoharis. Since cell phones first saw widespread adoption in the s, they've become not just ever present, but have developed vastly expanded capabilities, such as the ability to take and instantly share photos. Some states have adopted laws that prescribe penalties aimed specifically at teenagers or adolescents who send such photos. These laws make the penalties for teen sexting less severe than if an adult would send similar photos to an under-age person. To get state specific details regarding sexting, jump ahead to teen sexting laws by state. Sexting laws are a relatively new phenomena in the law. Though specific teen sexting laws are not present in a majority of states, the trend appears to be towards more widespread adoption of sexting laws. In the meantime, in those states without sexting laws, sexting may still be punished under pre-existing laws that target child pornography. The states that have adopted sexting laws have specifically targeted images sent between or among teenagers. For example, Connecticut's sexting law targets teens anyone between 13 and 17 who either transmit or possess nude or obscene photos of either themselves or another teenager.

I crawled out of bed, still wearing my Cracker Barrel uniform from the night before and managed to make my way over to the coffee machine. I grabbed my pumpkin spiced coffee, walked over to the couch, and opened his laptop. It was like the television was somehow warning me. My whole body went numb. My thoughts began to race. Who is this naked girl on the screen? She looks a lot like me. Wait, wait, wait…that is me. I had never felt more betrayed, confused, and heartbroken in all my 25 years of living. What the heck.
Some films are remembered eternally, and some are forgotten, but the stories about controversial behind-the-scenes elements have a long afterlife. They often haunt the world years after memories of the films themselves have paled in comparison. In , film producer Albin Grau hired director F. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for the screen-- to make Nosferatu. The film is inarguably a masterpiece, but modern audiences are lucky that they can even see it now.
