JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (JPD) - On Tuesday, Jacksonville Police Department arrested three juveniles for violating Arkansas State Statute, 5-27-602, distributing, possessing, or viewing of matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child. Two females, ages 13 and 14, and one male, age 14, was arrested today and cited into Juvenile Court. All three were released to their parents.
The investigation, which started on April 3, 2014, revealed an exchange of explicit videos between the juveniles. The videos were distributed out to several other juveniles.
Parents need to be aware of what their children are doing on the cell phones, IPads, and any other tablets. Sending explicit pictures or videos is against the law and causes problems when they end up in hands of a person that was not intended. There can be some emotional consequences when explicit pictures and videos are sent to someone and they forward it out to other people.
