       Changes in the Law – SB407
 Meant to prevent and hold minors responsible for
  transmitting sexually explicit messages by establishing
  educational programs for violators.
 "Sexting" between minors has historically been categorized
  as pornography, which means violators face felony
  convictions and possible registration for life in the Texas
  Sex Offender Registration program. Previously, anyone
  found sending or receiving sexts would be viewed by the
  law as possessing or trafficking pornography. The new law
  will grant exemption from punishment for those who
  receive a sext and either report or destroy it within 48
  hours.                                                 See Speaker

        What is Cyberbullying?                     the Talk

"Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is
 tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated,
 embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child,
 preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and
 digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a
 minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by
 a minor against another minor. Once adults become
 involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or
 cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or
 cyberstalking is NEVER called cyberbullying.
