A year-old man pretended to be a teenage boy on chat sites to obtain naked pictures of young girls. Francis Burns, of Clepington Road, targeted four different girls — two of whom were aged 10 and the other two aged 12 — via mobile social media apps KIK and SayHi. The girls live in England and have never met Burns but he managed to convince all of them he was their boyfriend in a very short space of time — one after just half an hour of chatting. Burns then asked for indecent pictures of her. He sent her an indecent image and continued to ask for more naked and explicit photos of her. The girl blocked him but he contacted her again through another chat app, threatening to put the images on Facebook if she did not send him more.

The news comes as police in Oslo charged three teenaged boys with repeated rapes of underage girls. The boys are also accused of filming scenes of a sexual nature and posting them on social media. According to the police, the videos were shared on closed Facebook groups and blog sites as well as directly to classmates on mobile phone screens. One of the three people charged has been released, while the other two await judgement as to whether they will be remanded in custody, according to news agency NTB. The case reflects a trend of young people becoming more and more reckless and led astray online - and the helplessness of their parents in stopping them, according to Fredy Joaquin Salazar, a police expert on sexual offences, and Eline Liljedahl, a specialist researcher with the police unit countering online crime.

Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in New Jersey, where he had returned on his private plane from Paris. American financier Jeffrey Epstein was charged with sex trafficking on Monday, as prosecutors accused him of luring dozens of girls as young as 14 to his luxury homes in New York and Florida and paying them for sex acts. An indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan accused Epstein, 66, of arranging for girls to perform nude "massages" and other sex acts, and paying some girls to recruit others.
According to the Chicago Tribune , this phenomenon has become such a problem of late in the Chicago area that police and local politicians are even holding a parents-only meeting at a local school to discuss the perils of social media to underage teens. The reasons why minors engage in sexting are diverse, according to police detective Charlie Hollendoner, who was quoted in the Tribune. They range from not being able to withstand peer pressure to being influenced by widely known public figures who fail to set a good example by sexting themselves. Prominent public figures who have sexted include Democratic politician Anthony Weiner, golfer Tiger Woods, and retired quarterback Brett Favre.
