    Default Nudes Sent by a Minor to Other Minors Without Consent

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Massachusetts.
    Multiple of my underage friends and I were sent nudes several times from the same person. this person is also underage, he's two years older than us. we all told him to stop but he continued. he's also said sexual things to us.

    Report this to your parents.

    Absokutely do NOT send the images to anybody. That would be a crime. If somebody will be reporting this to the police, they can retain the images for that purpose only. All others need to delete the images as possesmsion of child porn is a crime

    That is if the images are of a minor. If the images are of an adult, then I don't think any charges can be brought.

    OP didn't let us know of whom the images are. We will have to wait to find out.

    Aside from what you've already been told, when someone continues to communicate with you and you don't want the communications to continue, block the person.

    So what we have is, if the sender is a minor, taking pictures of himself and sending then to other minors, and being that Massachusetts law specifically states that minors are considered unable to consent to having sexually explicit photographs taken of themselves, it would be charged as a sex crime and it would be a felony and they would have to register as a sex offender for 20 years.
    And it looks like, even if the minor is sending nude pictures of an adult, They could still be prosecuted under.
    MGLA 272 28 - Matter harmful to minors, dissemination; possession

    Cannot send materials considered "harmful" to minors or have these materials in possession with intent to send them to minors
    Up to 5 years in prison or 2.5 years in jail
    $1000-$10,000 fine for first offense

    If you look at my post above, it will explain that he is in possession of child porn. You can tell your parents and see where they will take this.

    Actually the sender is not in possession of child porn if he has pictures of himself. He is guilty of disseminating child porn if he sends pictures of himself to others.

    The recipients are guilty of possession of child porn if they retain the images.
