The State reports that a bill to ban teens from “sexting” in South Carolina has cleared its first legislative hurdle on Wednesday.

The bill's sponsor, state Rep. Joan Brady (R-Richland), has been working to get this bill passed for nearly two years now.

Under Brady’s bill, teens 16 and under could be fined up to $100 if they “sext” anyone. Only the sender would get slapped with a fine, not the receiver, but if they forward it on to a third party, they could be fined by a Family Court judge.

For the obvious reasons, many find that this bill is asinine - us included. However, if you'd like to read more, hop over to the article in today edition of The State.
