Nude pic-posting teen may avoid jail

A prosecutor handling the case of a New Jersey girl accused of posting nude pictures of herself on says the teen may avoid jail and sex offender laws. The 14-year-old Clifton girl was arrested this week and charged with child pornography and distribution of child pornography for allegedly posting nearly 30 explicit pictures of herself on the social networking site.

Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Susan Greco says she can't talk about the case specifically because she has not yet received it from police or seen the photos.

But generally speaking, Greco says a juvenile with no prior criminal record would likely be offered a plea bargain to avoid jail and would not have to register as a sex offender under Megan's Law.
