North Carolina high schooler and his girlfriend face legal proceedings over selfies as both the adult perpetrators and minor victims

A teenage boy in North Carolina has been prosecuted for having nude pictures of himself on his own mobile phone. The young man, who is now 17 but was 16 at the time the photos were discovered, had to strike a plea deal to avoid potentially going to jail and being registered as a sex offender.

Experts condemned the case as ludicrous. The boy was, however, punished by the courts, and had to agree to be subject to warrantless searches by law enforcement for a year, in addition to other penalties.

The young man was also named in the media and suffered a suspension as quarterback of his high school football team while the case was being resolved.

Cormega Copening, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was prosecuted as an adult under federal child pornography felony laws, for sexually exploiting a minor. The minor was himself.

This is ridiculous.
I can appreciate that we need to curb minors from sending naked pictures of themselves. But prosecuting them as adults for having a picture of themselves?

Won't get any argument from me I think that wanting to prosecute him is really stupid.

sorry but i can't resist.

for the left


obviously this story is just ginned up by "fill in the political party" . In this internet age cases like this are brought to people's attention more often. it doesn't mean anything about overall bad policies of the city, much less the state or nation. even though cases like this by default stay at the local and state levels.

while one case like this may be shocking and over the top it's not indicative of any pattern of school, police or prosecutor activity of any place really.
it's a pure anomaly, a leprechaun.

schools, police and prosecutors are always reasonable in these cases and have reasonable policies in place.
unless he's a muslim or a homosexual then it obviously racism and homophobia. By right wingers living in the stone age.

.........


for the Right


the kid obviously did something!
i bet you'll find a HISTORY of "behavioral problems" . So he deserves it!
why'd he think he'd get away with breaking DA LAW anyway. These kids with cell phones think they are above the law. why don't they get a job?
He's probably Muslim or a thug anyway.
All you soft headed leftist answer me this, Would you rather him put a way NOW or wait until he's 21 and started taking pictures of himself on the phone THEN!?

nip it in the bud! nip it!
grrrrrrrrr OBAMA!

In other news, a man was charged with assault and battery after he kicked the crap out of himself during a drunken rage.

I don't know. Maybe it's because their peepees were showing.

I agree it's ridiculous.

While the pictures were illegal, actual sex would not be – the age of consent for sexual intercourse in North Carolina is 16.
