New York Times has huge story on sexting problem: case history in Washington State

The New York Times has a feature front page story on an incident in Washington state on how a innocent instance of “sexting” suddenly went viral and resulted in a number of 14 and 15 year old kids threatened with big time prosecution, in what seems like a travesty.  The story link is here. 

The New York Times starts its “paywall” tomorrow so soon these articles cannot be read for free (more than a limited number a month) without subscription. The Times offers several links and discussions today on the Washington state incident.  

The story does show how teens are unaware of the long term consequences of what adults seem to encourage them to do.
