Montgomery police say a 12-year old boy has been arrested for sending an explicit image with his cell phone.

According to police reports, the boy sent a photo of his genitalia to a 13-year-old girl. The practice is referred to among teens as “sexting”.

Because the boy was under 17, the offense is a Class B felony. Police spokesman said he did it as a joke.

Juveniles in several states, including Alabama, have been charged in similar cases.
