NEWARK, Ohio (AP) — Police in Newark, Ohio, have arrested a 15-year-old girl on juvenile child pornography charges for allegedly sending nude cell phone photos of herself to classmates.

The girl was arrested Friday and held over the weekend. Her defense filed denials in court Monday.

Police did not identify the girl by name and prosecutors promised a statement with details later Wednesday. Authorities were also considering charges for students who received the photos.

Now there's a new one. Instead of requiring the girl to do something like write lines or an essay on "Why sending nudes of yourself to someone else is a bad idea", charge 'er, and lock 'er up and get all her friends too! Woohoo, law and order, makin' sure those juvie delinquents get some good ol' jail time.

There's reasons why we quit executing young people who stole things and one of them is that young people don't always exercise the best judgement.
