Prosecutors won't use graphic pics in sexting case

Posted: Updated:

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - Prosecutors say they won't use any explicit photos in their effort to prove a sexting case against a 17-year-old who had been subject to a search warrant demanding photos of his erect penis.

But at a closed hearing Tuesday in Prince William County juvenile court, The Washington Post reported (http://wapo.st/1ksY233) that prosecutors moved ahead with plans to prosecute the teen whose case garnered national attention.

The teen left the state to evade a search warrant demanding photos of erect penis in an effort to prove he sent similar pictures to his then 15-year-old girlfriend.

Facing severe criticism, police said last week they would no longer seek those photos. And at Tuesday's hearing, prosecutors said they would not use photos of his non-aroused genitals that had already been taken.
