DENVER - Teen 'sexting' may soon result in a less severe crime, making it easier to charge students.
State Representative Rhonda Fields is one of the lawmakers behind a bill that would create a less serious misdemeanor for teens that send nude photos via text.
She discussed her proposal with Anne Trujillo and Marshall Zelinger on this week's Politics Unplugged.
Right now, Colorado law allows any teen that receives a nude image and then shares that image with another teen to be charged with a serious crime. The bill proposed by State Representative Yeulin Willett would lessen that offense.
Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4 p.m. on Denver7.
