Rose, Interrupted and Sexting

Rose, Interrupted is the new novel from Patrice Lawrence

Sexting is a key issue in the book and Rose’s younger brother Rudder gets into trouble with school and the police after he accidentally shares an image of a girl. With sexting on the rise among young people in the UK, and many not understanding the legal implications of their actions, this is a growing problem with potentially severe consequences.

In these videos, author Patrice Lawrence talks to Laura Janes, Legal Director at The Howard League for Penal Reform about where the law stands on sexting and what young people should do if they find they have either shared an image or had their image shared.
