A Canadian teenager has been found guilty of distributing child pornography. The 16-year-old girl, who is  not identified because she is a minor, “sexted” pictures of her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend to peers.

The teen was also convicted of verbally threatening the girl.

From CNN:

The case began in November 2012 when the teen learned that her 17-year-old boyfriend was still in contact with his former girlfriend. “The accused was not at all happy that he was still in touch with his ex,” Fisher told CNN. The teenager initially threatened the ex-girlfriend on Facebook, the prosecutor said.

The girl then texted five explicit pictures of the ex-girlfriend to a group of people. She found the photos on her boyfriend’s phone.

The teen is currently out on bail while she awaits sentencing.
