Police want photo of teen’s aroused organ for sexting case

MANASSAS, Va. – A Virginia teenager is fighting efforts by police who want to take photos of him in a sexually aroused state to try to prove a sexting case against him.

Prosecutors in Prince William County told a judge they need photos of the 17-year-old’s erect penis to compare against photos he is accused of sending to his 15-year-old girlfriend.

The teen’s lawyers say the search warrant allowing the photographs has been authorized but not yet executed. They are fighting the warrant in court; a hearing is scheduled for next week.

The teen’s aunt and guardian has sent her son out of state for now so the warrant can’t be executed.

Police and prosecutors did not immediately return calls Wednesday.

The story was first reported by WRC-TV (http://bit.ly/1m18gMk).
