Young people who send lewd pictures by cell phone, computer or other electronic devices could face a month behind bars, a House committee decided Thursday. The Committee on the Administration Criminal Justice approved House Bill 1357 by Rep. Damon Baldone, D-Houma, making "sexting" a crime for anyone under the age of 17. His bill now heads to the House floor for debate. The bill would prohibit young people from "knowingly and voluntarily" using a computer or telecommunications device to transmit "an indecent visual depiction of himself" to another. It also would prohibit anyone in the same age group from possessing the material.
