That girl sent the picture to another girl, who sent it to another. Preliminary charges are pending for all three—the boy was charged with manufacturing child porn, and the girls with distributing it. A prosecutor is still weighing whether to pursue the charges.

Internet Porn Nightmares
Blackburn boy, 13, rapes sister, 8, after watching porn on Xbox - A 13-YEAR-OLD boy admitted raping his eight-year-old sister after watching pornography on a friend's Xbox.
The case has reignited the debate over children’s access to porn, with a rape charity calling for tighter restrictions.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting the girl and inciting her to perform a sexual act on him.
The youngster, from Blackburn, had told police he had been watching porn on the games console with a friend and ‘decided to try it out’.
He said he had chosen his sister because she was small and ‘couldn't remember stuff’. Read More>>
Two teenage boys spend $20,000 on internet pornography - Two teenage boys racked up nearly $20,000 on their parents' credit cards to feed addictions to online sex sites.
Adelaide sex and drug addiction counsellor Robert Mittiga said the teenagers were among an increasing number of young people seeking his help for porn addictions.
"One lad spent something like $13,000 over a period of eight or nine months downloading porn and another kid spent about $6000 - and we are talking about 14 or 15 year olds," Mr Mittiga said.
Mr Mittiga, who runs GATS (Gambling and Treatment Services) Counselling Services Australia, said pre-pubescent children as young as 12 were downloading extreme pornography on their computers or smart phones, exposing them to a significant risk of psychological harm.
"Their brains are not developed enough to process what they are seeing and (they) are exposing themselves to a really high risk later on of addiction," he said.
And that is a very devastating addiction; it really disrupts the process of developing and learning about healthy relationships." Read More>>
North Shore's teen boys addicted to sex and violence online - Boys as young as 12 are becoming addicted to graphic and violent internet pornography.
“Internet porn is everywhere and a lot of young boys have become addicted,” he said.
“It’s all about instant gratification, rather than delaying urges and building relationships. It teaches them they can have sex there and then and doesn’t teach good values”.
Mr Citer said some schoolboys had developed “rites of passage” where they were required to sexually assault girls to become members of a club.
“A lot of this (internet) stuff is very violent, where you have five or six males having sex with a woman.”
He said internet porn was increasingly “a coping strategy” for boys under stress and the harder life got at school, the more they turned to it. The danger was they were being duped into thinking sex without a relationship was normal behaviour.
Many 12-year-olds were regular browsers of pornography and some were even younger. Read More>>

"Believe it or not, the use of blocking software is declining in America [in conjunction] with the rise of the use of pornography by children," Trueman points out. "There's sort of a disconnect there .... so blocking software is very important." Read More>>
