Sexting and STOP Program
Sexting and STOP Program
Materials were delivered to Clark County Schools earlier this month to help educate and instruct students, parents, and educational professionals about the potential implications of a student sending a sexually explicit photo or video. Under Ohio law, a person can be charged with possession or distributing of child pornography for taking, sending, or possessing any sexually explicit photo of or involving a minor. This includes a minor taking a nude or sexually explicit photo of themselves and sending it to a boyfriend or girlfriend. The Clark County Prosecutor’s Office, in conjunction with the Clark County Juvenile Court has implemented the STOP Program, which will run eligible first-time offenders through the juvenile diversion program in lieu of the potential felony conviction they face. If the program is completed successfully, all criminal charges will be dismissed. Watch the video here.
