TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida lawmakers are considering milder penalties for teens who are caught "sexting."
The change would, in part, decriminalize transmission of nude or semi-nude images if sent via cell phone or email.
Instead of treating sexting among teens as a sex crime, the bills would create a law that specifically addresses sexting among minors. The new law would impose more moderate punishments, which would occur in stages.
