Sexting cases amongst teens and young adults have been on the rise, especially in the media. However, very few teens understand the serious repercussions that can arise as a result of a simple push of the send button on their cell phones. North Carolina lands in a particularly interesting spot with regards to crimes such as sexting that tend to gravitate towards young adults, because those 16 years of age or older are charged as adults. This means that a high school sophomore could have a conviction on their permanent adult record for the rest of their life due to a lapse of judgment in their youth.
