This comment analyzes how teen-to-teen sexting is presently addressed under the Code of Virginia. It also addresses the statutes under which Janie and her friends may be convicted for their various indiscretions as well as some of the long term consequences of those convictions. Additionally, it addresses the recent Virginia State Crime Commissions report on teen-toteen sexting. The General Assembly may soon seek to adjust the Code of Virginia to better address teen-on-teen sexting. The second part of this comment will consider the options put forth by the Virginia State Crime Commission report and at different legislative "fixes" that have been proposed or enacted in some of Virginia's sister states.
