JAMES CITY COUNTY, Va. — A teenager in Virginia is facing child pornography charges after authorities said she tweeted nude pictures of herself.

WAVY.com reported that the 16-year-old allegedly posted the photos on or around January 30.

The girl was then charged by police in James City County, Va. with one count of distributing child pornography. The teen’s phone was also confiscated as evidence.

If convicted, the girl and her parents could be ordered to complete a court-mandated sexting education program.

Police said the teenager crossed the line of sexting to child pornography because of the lewdness of the photos.

Stephanie Williams-Ortery with the James City County Police Department said anyone could have seen the teen’s nude tweets.

“You have no idea who’s out there watching. You never know who’s going to see what you post,” she said.
