'Sexting' is referred to as the act of sending and posessing nude photos on cell phones.

The teens admitted to charges of contributed to the deliquency of a minor. Juvenile Court Judge Mike Powell sentenced each teen to 100 hours of community service and counseling. The male teen was sentenced to house arrest for 30 days while the female will be required to submit a research paper to the court relating to the dangers of sexting. The teens will also be required to give their cell phones to a probation officer for 30 days.

"This is a just and adequate punishment," Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel said. "It sends a message to the teens of Warren County that this is not a joke, this is a serious issue that can have long lasting consequences."
