We now have added "Informational Posts" which are tidbits of information that may come in handy at some point.

Sexting brochure for parents

December 2009:

"Sexting" is a cross between sex and texting. It is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos electronically, primarily between cell phones. "Sexting" is a relatively new practice among teenagers and with increasing frequency is bringing teens into the juvenile justice system.

A juvenile conviction for a sexual offense has serious consequences which include registering as a sex offender. Even if "Sexting" does not result in judicial system intervention, the impact can last a lifetime.

Colorado's Weld county District Attorney's office has created a brochure to help inform the public about the growing problems of teens and sexting. The brochure, "Sexting: Balancing the law, teens and technology" is available HERE.
