Teens Learning Tough Lesson After Sexting

DETROIT (WWJ) – More and more teenagers are learning a tough lesson, after they send sexually explicit photos of themselves on the phone or computer. 

That’s why Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper has been visiting local high schools; telling teens “don’t do it!”

“Anytime you put anything out on cyberspace, there is nothing that is temporary, a memory chip in a phone means that there is a memory. A hard drive means that no matter what you delete, computer experts can always find that,” says Cooper.

A recent survey of found 20-percent of teenagers and 33-percent of young adults had sent nude or semi-nude photographs of themselves electronically.
