Maryland's law against distributing child pornography applies even when the person distributing a pornographic video is the video's minor subject, Maryland's highest court ruled on Wednesday in a 6-1 vote.

The girl in question, identified only as "S.K." in court documents, was 16 years old when she performed oral sex on an unidentified male. The act was captured on video—he appears to have been holding the camera—and S.K. shared the video with two friends via a text message. She eventually became estranged from one of the friends, a 17-year-old boy, and he showed the video to a police officer at the school.
Wasn't there a similar incidence awhile back the only difference it was a guy? Seems a bit crazy to get someone in trouble with this, but if it happens to guys it should equally apply to girls.

I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around this. If she's too young to consent; how is she not too young to exploit herself? You can't have it both ways.

You are exactly right, any lawyer will be able to get this charge dropped pretty easily, Its beyond stupid for them to prosecute the very people they are trying to protect with these laws!

How old was the unidentified male? Seems like there are more reasons to get the girl help than to charge her.

What kind of help does she need? All she did was give some guy oral sex?

Learning about sex and experimenting was common when I was a teenager, how is this any different then us taking pictures and having sex back then?

Ambiguity in the law is all too prevalent.

Seem pretty straightforward to me.

And since she is a minor, why were her parents not in court as well?

OK, then if minors can make porn and distribute it, then the adults who have sex with them should not be prosecuted.

If you can "put it out there" with impunity when you are a minor, then you ain't no victim.

Apparently this was the appeal. The incident occurred back in the 2016-2017 school year, when the girl was 16 but she decided to appeal & is now over the age of 18.
