Teens in danger of "sexting", sending inappropriate images to each other and/or strangers.

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - A Virginia teenager has been given a year on probation in a sexting case that once included a search warrant for a picture of his genitals.

A judge on Friday placed the teen on probation and said he would consider dismissing the two child pornography counts against the teen if he stays free of trouble for a year. The case drew attention because police at one point sought to take pictures of the teen's erect penis in order to prove the case against him.

Police and prosecutors faced criticism, and police later said they would not seek the photos. Police wanted the pictures to compare against images he is accused of sending to his girlfriend, who was 15 at the time.
