Attention-Seeking Minnesota Prosecutor Charges Teen Girl With Child Porn For A Nude Selfie

In a bizarre case of an attention-seeking conservative prosecutor in Minnesota abusing his power, a teenage girl is now looking at felony criminal charges after she sent a nude selfie through Snapchat to a classmate. In a statement, the teen (who is both the defendant and the “victim” in this ludicrous case of legal malpractice) states the obvious truth that she is not a criminal.

“Sexting is common among teens at my school, and we shouldn’t face charges for doing it. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I’m going through,” the 14-year-old girl explained in a statement published this week by the Minnesota chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota.

The ACLU has publicly announced that it will defend “Jane Doe” against this disgusting attempt to control female sexuality, and points out the prosecution is not taking into account the intent of the state’s child pornography statute.

“No reasonable kid would realize that what she is doing is wrong and that what she is doing is a felony and so that’s another reason that the court should not allow this prosecution to go forward,” ACLU-MN legal director Teresa Nelson explained in a recent interview with local media.

Moreover, it should be kept in mind that these laws were passed to prosecute people who endanger or victimize juveniles, not prosecute juveniles

“To suggest that a juvenile who sends a sexually explicit selfie is a victim of her own act of child pornography is illogical,” Nelson stated while shaking her head forcefully. “Child pornography laws are supposed to protect minors from predators, and Jane Doe is not a predator.”

According to the ACLU, Jane Doe used the Snapchat app to send a nude selfie to a boy she was attracted to. The boy took a screenshot of the nude pic and later shared it with other students at the school.

The ACLU statement continued to point out that Minnesota’s child pornography statute, which is designed to “protect minors from the physical and psychological damage caused by their being used in pornographic work depicting sexual conduct which involves minors,” obviously does not apply to Doe because she sent the photo herself.

In response to the bizarre charges by the rogue, publicity-seeking prosecutor, the Minnesota chapter of the ACLU has filed a legal brief accusing the prosecutor of having an “absurd interpretation and perverse application” of the law against their client and that the charge “jeopardizes thousands of minors…by criminalizing increasingly common adolescent behavior.”

Also keep in mind that if the teen girl, who is facing felony charges in Rice County, MN, were to be convicted of the charge, she would be forced to register as a predatory sex offender for the next 10 years.

It’s time to for the people of Minnesota to stand up to closed minded, right-wing bullies like this prosecutor, and to make their feelings known on social media as well as contact their local representatives about taking steps to censure rogue prosecutors who are wasting taxpayer dollars on frivolous prosecutions to further their personal political agendas.
