Canadian Teen Sexter Guilty of Child Porn Possession

Lawyer representing the 16-year-old girl says he will challenge the verdict

A teenager in Canada has been found guilty of possessing and disseminating child pornography after sending text messages containing naked images of her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.

The teenager—who was aged 16 at the time of the offence—had been shown the photos by her boyfriend, then sent them to a friend.

The court heard her aim had been to humiliate and intimidate her victim.

The lawyer representing the teenager says he will challenge the verdict.

The victim was of a similar age to the accused, which meant the images were deemed to be child pornography. The teenager was also charged with "uttering threats".
