Our Pembroke Pines and Hollywood juvenile defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert know that the prosecution's decision to drop criminal charges against the Pembroke Pines teens who uploaded nude pictures of other minors is an important one.
Last month, we wrote about this case in its infancy; as you may recall, three juveniles were arrested for uploading naked photos of fellow juveniles to an account on the social networking app Instagram. In other words, they were arrested on suspicion of sharing child pornography on the internet.
This week, as we noted above, prosecutors handling the case decided that the three teens would be better suited in therapy and community service than they'd be facing criminal charges. Specifically, the teenagers will be partaking in a juvenile diversion program.
