Three Iowa teenagers are getting a tough lesson in the legal system. Authorities in Storm Lake say they sent nude pictures of themselves to a young man making them both victims and defendants in the same crime.

The girls are 16 and 17 years old. They will be charged as adults for sending the pictures to a 19-year-old man. Alex Case has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

The girls, whose names have not been released, will be charged for a felony for sending the pictures and misdemeanors for possessing them – even though the pictures are of themselves.

Buena Vista County Sheriff Gary Launderville says that is how Iowa state laws read.
