Henrietta Cook reports:

School children are among the 53 people who have been charged with new sexting offences in Victoria.

There have been 174 sexting offences recorded since the laws came into effect, and around 29 per cent of alleged offenders were minors aged between 10 and 17, according to figures from the Crime Statistics Agency.

While the bulk of these young alleged offenders were given warnings, seven children have been charged with sending or threatening to distribute explicit images without consent over the past 15 months.
