Teen Gets Two Years For "Sexting"

Isaac Owusu, the defendant in the Vermont "sexting" case, has received a two-year sentence, but will serve 90 days as a result of a plea deal. The Vermont legislature has in the meantime decriminalized "sexting" for minors (2009 Vt. Act 58; 2009 Vt. S. 125). 

Here's discussion of Professor Peter Cumming's characterization of sexting as the 21st century's version of "spin the bottle." Here's a link to Professor Cumming's page and his paper, "Children's Rights, Children’s Voices, Children’s Technology, Children’s Sexuality."
