San Diego 10 News gave details on the recent arrest of a high school girls’ soccer coach. The 35-year old man from Rancho Penasquitos was arrested and charged with “suspicion of luring a minor for sexual purposes and sending harmful matter” to the female student. The man was a soccer coach at Del Norte High School but was let go after he was arrested. The alleged incident in this case is considered “sexting.”

Sexting is a relatively new type of sex crime. Sexting occurs when a picture of a sexual nature is sent or received by a cell phone text message. It can be charged as a crime if the recipient of the picture is a minor. The charge can be either a felony or misdemeanor. A conviction of this sex crime can result in prison time as well as a requirement to register as a sex offender for life.
