UK Police Questioned Hundreds of Children as Young as Five Years Old For 'Sexting' | Heat Street
"New police data shows British forces are going after children as young as five years old for “sexting” – sending or receiving explicit pictures.
According to data obtained by the BBC, almost 400 children under age 12 in England and Wales were contacted by police in the last three years about sexting on their mobile phones.
Police officers spoke to one five-year-old last year in an attempt to curb the increasing number of kids who use phones to send each other explicit photographs.
The five-year-old is believed to be the youngest child approached by the police in relation to sexting. Other cases involved several seven-year-olds and eight-year-olds."
