Hello and welcome
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to providing you information in this regard.
First of all, this is a very serious charge. It is consider child Pornography if the girl is under the age of 18
Next, if the ex boyfriend took her photo with her permission, then she can be charged with a child pornography offense.
If she sent it out, she can be charged, as you son and anyone else who transmitted or forward it, with Distribution of Child Pornography.
Anyone who received it, whether they forwarded it or not can be charged with Possession of Child Pornography.
So there is a lot at stake here and I suggest if you have not already done so you want to consult with a local criminal
law attorney about the chances of having this matter dismissed somehow.
These are serious charges and can require your son to have to register as a sex offender.
I know you are looking for fairness. But at this time, I suggest due to the seriousness of this matter, you focus only on your son's situation and have a local attorney figure out who did what, who is being charged with what and let the attorney use that to help get these charges against him cleared.
