Re: Sexting With a Minor
the problem with that defense is that the laws concerning minors and their ability to consent do not necessarily allow one to nullify the other.
As an example; if the minor had sent nude pictures of her, regardless of the fact she may be allowed to bare herself to others, child pornography is still illegal. She could be found guilty of producing and dispersing child porn and he would be guilty of possession of child porn even if each of them willingly engaged in the activity.
I don't necessarily disagree with your position. It's just that, even as you said, it tends to try to mix several laws together to give reason to the defense. That usually takes a very persuasive lawyer and a liberal court. Laws created to protect minors are often seen as being strict in their application to avoid such defenses. Once you start getting minors on the stand saying "ya, I asked for a pic of his stuff", you start down that slippery road to Hell. The courts tend to resist diluting the laws intended to protect minors.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
