DWU Professor Co-Edits New Textbook About Sexting

Dakota Wesleyan University

Dakota Wesleyan University assistant professor of Criminal Justice Jesse Weins recently co-edited a new textbook called "Sexting and Youth: A Multidisciplinary Examination of Research, Theory, and Law." Weins also penned the first chapter. "Positive steps have been made in the last five years towards better responses for teen sexting," Weins said. "But even now there is not uniformity in how to approach the topic, neither in law nor policy." Weins discussed the potentials dangers of sexting and how parents can talk to their teens about the subject.
