13 Laws Pertaining to Sexting in the Commonwealth of PA The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lawmakers have proposed a law making sexting a second-degree misdemeanor for minors who intentionally or knowingly record, view, possess or transmit images of a minor (above the age of 13) engaged in sexually explicit condu ct. First-time offenders would be subject to a summary charge, that would not be on their permanent record but the minor would be required to forfeit their electronic devices. Until the proposed legislation becomes law, minors may still be prosecuted under the Commonwealth’s child pornography laws. If convicted, an individual could receive jail time as well as may need to register as a sex offender.
