Notes for Entire Bill Effective 9/1/11 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.
