Virginia Police Want To Take Explicit Photos Of Teen In Sexting Case

A Virginia teenager is fighting efforts by police who want to take photos of him in a sexually aroused state to try to prove a sexting case against him.

Prosecutors in Prince William County told a judge they need photos of the 17-year-old's erect penis to compare against photos he is accused of sending to his 15-year-old girlfriend.

The teen's attorneys say the search warrant allowing the photographs has been authorized but not yet executed. They are fighting the warrant in court; a hearing is scheduled for next week.

The teen's aunt and guardian has sent her son out of state for now so the warrant can't be executed.

In a statement, Manassas City Police say it is not the policy of their department or the Commonwealth Attorney's office to authorize invasive search procedures in cases of this nature.
