Kiddie Porn on MySpace

March 31st, 2006 by Alex

So here’s an interesting story for you: three people charged with posting child pornography on everyone’s favorite demon, MySpace. I know, that doesn’t sound interesting, but here’s the twist:

It’s child porn, alright — naked pictures of themselves.

From the Providence Journal:

North Smithfield police have arrested a teenager and a 19-year-old woman who posted sexually explicit photos of themselves on the Internet.

The police say Elizabeth Muller of 6 Sorel Ave., North Smithfield and a 16-year-old female friend from Lincoln put the pictures on myspace.com…

During a routine patrol of the site, Lincoln High School Resource Officer David Waycott recognized the teenager from school and alerted the police department’s juvenile division.

“They were fully naked and posing together,” said Capt. Denis Smith of North Smithfield.

Under Rhode Island law, posting naked pictures of an underage person, even one’s self, constitutes child pornography.

Don’t get too excited: the photos have been taken down.
