A bill to be considered by members of the Texas Senate, Senate Bill 407, would allow for sexting charges to be expunged from a minor’s record. Expunction is when certain criminal charges are permanently removed from one’s criminal record.
Currently, sexting, or sending explicit photos in a text message, can result in a third-degree felony charge. In Texas, individuals under the age of 18-years old caught sexting could legally have to pay up to $10,000 in fines and could even be sentenced to prison for anywhere from 2 to 10 years. In addition, they may have to be listed as registered sex offenders. All of these punishments are as a result of the fact that Texas laws classify sexting as a sex crime at the same level as a crime like child pornography.
The new bill would decrease the weight of a sexting charge to a Class C misdemeanor for minors facing their first sexting charge. Violators would be required to attend an “anti-sexting” class with a parent and could have the charge expunged if they do not commit a second offense.
