CANADA – A Canadian teenage girl has been found guilty of distributing child pornography in connection with “sexting” pictures of her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, the youth crown prosecutor for Victoria said Friday.

The British Columbia case of the then 16-year-old, who is not identified because she is a minor, is believed to be one of the first cases in Canada where a teenager has been convicted of child pornography charges related to “sexting.”

The teenager, who also was convicted of uttering threats, is out on bail while awaiting sentencing, Crown Prosecutor Chandra Fisher said. She declined to speculate on what sentence the teen might face.
