16-year-old boy charged in sexting case

Accused of sharing explicit image of 17-year-old girl

A 16-year-old boy in northwestern Ontario has been charged in a sexting investigation.

OPP say they were approached over the weekend with explicit photos of a 17-year-old girl on an unnamed electronic device.

Police allege a 16-year-old Kenora passed around at least one of those photos. He's been charged with distribution of child pornography.

Creating and sending nude pictures of anyone under age of 18 is considered child pornography under the Criminal Code of Canada, no matter how old the creator or sender is.
