A grotesque case in Georgia, where a child was left to "roast" in the back seat of a locked car, has become complicated by the sexting issue. Georgia police say that the defendant was "sexting" while the son was left in the back seat of his car. The WJLA story is here. The defendant also reportedly did not want the responsibility for children seemed to want a "new life".
This the first time that I can recall where the "sexting" issue has been used by proscutors to strengthen a separate criminal charge.
CNN televised some of the preliminary hearings (or bail hearing) today, Friday. Bail was denied in this murder case.
