(New York Post) Having sex with a 16 year old in Indiana is legal but sending them nude photos isn't, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled this week.
The court's unanimous 5-0 ruling means that Sameer Thakar, a former teacher at North Central High School, will go on trial for allegedly sending a 16-year-old girl from Oregon a nude image of himself in 2014, The Indianapolis Star reported. If convicted, he could serve three years behind bars.
Thakar allegedly sent the photo to the girl after they discussed her age, and she told him she wished she were 18. He later confessed to police that he had a problem with chatting online.
