Sexting Now Illegal For Minors In Beaver Dam

6/20/17 – he Beaver Dam City Council last night approved an ordinance that prohibits sexting by minors. The law is modeled after similar ordinances in other Wisconsin communities. Prior to adoption, if two underage children exchanged images of themselves by text message, the only recourse was to file felony charges or to do nothing. The ordinance now allows for a municipal penalty that does not require becoming a lifetime registered sex offender.
