In the event you haven’t been following my blog, I generally stick to business, marketing and human resource issues during the week and then to larger societal and humor on the weekend. Well after reading an article about teenagers taking racy photos of themselves being found guilty of child pronography, I decided to start a little earlier. It is Friday afterall.

What: Teenagers taking risque photos of themselves are prosecuted for violating child pornography laws.

When: Florida state appeals court rules on January 19.

Outcome: A 2-1 majority upholds conviction on grounds the girl produced a photograph featuring the sexual conduct of a child.

What happened, according to court documents:

Combine unsupervised teenagers, digital cameras, and e-mail, and, given sufficient time, you’ll end up with risque photographs on a computer somewhere.

There’s a problem with that: Technically, those images constitute child pornography. That’s what 16-year old Amber and 17-year old Jeremy, her boyfriend, both residents of the Tallahassee, Fla., area, learned firsthand.

Where does this idiocy stop?
