WFMY-News — There are thousands of people listed on the North Carolina State Sex Offender registry. There is a county by county list. The majority of them are not behind bars. And they’re not all who you think. In fact, your teen’s name could one day be listed because they willingly sent a naked picture of themselves to a boyfriend or girlfriend who asked for it.
At least 21 states are creating laws to deal with consensual sexting between teens so they’re not dealing with felony charges.
