Sexting Laws in New Hampshire
Sexting Laws in New Hampshire:
New Hampshire lawmakers have discussed about the sexting problem among teens but up until now, no sexting bills have been proposed.
Since there is no special law specifically for sexting, any person caught sexting images containing minors engaging in sexual activity is charged under the state’s child pornography laws.
New Hampshire child pornography laws punish anyone, regardless of age, for producing, possessing and/or distributing images or videos containing minors engaging in sexual act. The individual is charged with a felony and if convicted, faces jail time and must register as a sex offender.
- Minor can avoid the charges under the following conditions: possesses less than 3 images; does not redistribute the images; takes reasonable steps to remove the images; report the problem to law enforcements.
- Charges with a felony.
- Up to 30 years in prison.
- Registration as a sex offender.
