North Carolina high schooler and his girlfriend face legal proceedings over selfies as both the adult perpetrators and minor victims. A teenage boy in North Carolina has been prosecuted for having nude pictures of himself on his own mobile phone. The young man, who is now 17 but was 16 at the time the photos were discovered, had to strike a plea deal to avoid potentially going to jail and being registered as a sex offender. Experts condemned the case as ludicrous. The boy was, however, punished by the courts, and had to agree to be subject to warrantless searches by law enforcement for a year, in addition to other penalties. The young man was also named in the media and suffered a suspension as quarterback of his high school football team while the case was being resolved.

By Gabrielle Fonrouge. A serial female pedophile who plied at least one of her teen victims with Nike sneakers after she had sex with him will be spending two years in the slammer , an English court has ruled. Gail Wright, 44, met her five victims last year and developed a relationship with each of them, first on Facebook, dispatching naked photos through the site to groom five teen boys , who were all between the ages of 14 and 15, authorities said. After developing a relationship with her first victim, she began sending naked pictures of herself and making sexually explicit comments, authorities said. She later began a sexual relationship with another teen, buying him Nike Air sneakers, and clothes for his 16th birthday, police said. Wright, of Elmtree Close in Shireoaks, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child, two counts of possessing indecent images of a child, and four of causing a child to look at images of sexual activity.

A boy who sent a naked photograph of himself to a girl at school has had the crime of making and distributing indecent images recorded against him by police, the BBC has learnt. The boy, aged 14, who was not arrested or charged, could have his name stored on a police database for 10 years. Police said three children were named in a crime report, but it was not in the public interest to prosecute. The Criminal Bar Association said the case highlighted the dangers of needlessly criminalising children. The schoolboy, who lives in the north of England, told BBC Radio 4's Today Programme he took the naked photo of himself in his own bedroom. He then sent it to a girl from his school using Snapchat - an app which deletes direct messages within 10 seconds. However, before the image disappeared, the girl saved it on her own phone and it was then sent to other pupils at the school. The matter was brought to the attention of a police officer based at the school and it has now been officially recorded as a crime. However, his mother was told her son's details - along with those of the girl involved and another teenager - had been added to a police intelligence database and could be stored for at least 10 years. She said the school police officer said the incident could be flagged up in a DBS check formerly CRB if her son ever wanted to get a certain jobs - including one working with children.
I respect all doctors so much, they go through hell to be where they are and put up with so much stuff at their work too. I am so grateful to have had the ability to instill in them that family comes first. Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim.
