Senate sexting provisions topic for TV

Sen. John Campbell, D-Windsor, will have a few minutes of fame on the Today Show tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at about 7:30 a.m.

His topic will be provisions about sexting included in a rcently passed Senate bill. If you aren’t familiar with sexting, it’s sending sexually explicit photos between cell phones.

The risk now is that young people could be charged with pornography and face dire consequences -- such as being listed on the public sexual offender registry.

The Senate bill proposes to remove the most serious consequences for sexting.

"We don't want our kids who made a bad decision to suffer for the rest of their lives," Campbell said.

He recognizes this is an awkward issue to defend, but said he believes he can make the case for the Senate provisions before a national television audience.

The bill is currently under review by the House Judiciary Committee, so it's not law yet.
