In the first case ever to challenge the constitutionality of prosecuting teens for "sexting," the 3rd Circuit has upheld an injunction that barred a Pennsylvania prosecutor from bringing child pornography charges against girls who refused to attend a class he had designed to educate young people about the dangers of sexting. A unanimous three-judge panel found that any decision to prosecute the teens after they refused to take the class would be retaliation against them for asserting their First Amendment rights.
