A fight over a boyfriend and jealousy between 16-year-old girls, landed one teenager in jail.
A 16-year-old girl of Canada, became possessive over her boyfriend, and she did not want him to get back with his former girlfriend.
In order to make sure that his former girlfriend stays away, the girl sexted nude photos of the former girlfriend to others.
The now 17-year-old, was found guilty of possessing and distribution of child pornography. She was also found guilty of making threats.
It all began last year, when the jealous teenager sexted nude pictures of her boyfriend’s former girlfriend to people, and also published a nude photo to Facebook.
A total of three nude photos were exchanged between the jealous rival and another friend.
The teenager was convicted and is facing jail time.
The teenager’s lawyer, Christopher Mackie, immediately reprimanded the guilty verdict on the courthouse steps.
“These child pornography laws were intended to protect children, not to persecute them, and it seems that the criminal justice system did just that,” Mackie said.
The lawyer has already filed a constitutional challenge and plans to appeal the case at the high court if necessary.
