Vermont Teen Gets Prison Time in 'Sexting' Case

Ad Feedback

A Vermont teen is sentenced to prison in the state's first "sexting" case.         

"Sexting" is sending or receiving sexually suggestive photos by text messages or e-mail.

In December 2008, 18-year-old Isaac Owusu encouraged two girls to engage in sexual activity and send him the results.

Vermont recently decriminalized "sexting."

Teens are no longer prosecuted as adults or registered as sex offenders.

In Owusu's case, he pled guilty to three lesser counts of committing lewd and prohibited acts.

Owusu will now serve 90 days in prison.
