Trish: ‘Sexting’ Penalty Disgusting

On her Facebook wall, Trish Gannon of the River Journal writes: "I hear Sandpoint Middle School invited the police in to talk to students about the zero-policy for 'sexting,' and that students were told if they were caught doing so, they would be arrested and registered as a sex offender 'for the rest of their life!' Sheesh. I can't think who I'm more disgusted with." Good conversation about this under way on Trish's Facebook wall here.

Question: Should a teen caught "sexting" be forced to register as a sex offender?
