"Face detection has the potential to aid selection of useful images for 'mugshots' or even for face recognition by assessing the angle of the face," it reads.
I was 13 in 1995 when we finally went online at my house.
Every person who, with knowledge that a person is a minor, knowingly distributes, sends, causes to be sent, exhibits, or offers to distribute or exhibit by electronic mail, the Internet, as defined in Section 17538 of the Business and Professions Code, or a commercial online service, any harmful matter, as defined in Section 313, to a minor with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust or passions or sexual desires of that person or of a minor, and with the intent, or for the purpose of seducing a minor, is guilty of a public offense and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison or in a county jail. It clearly says "AND with the intent, or for the purpose of seducing a minor," which makes it sound like one would have to have done the first part, as well as have had intent for the second part. Like I said before, it was purely sexually explicit text...a picture was asked for (not sexually explicit), but she said she didn't have one and there were no further questions regarding pictures.
It was even stated that she was too young to actually engage in sexual activity with. You are just asking to have your life screwed up in a major way.
There was no plan of meeting or engaging in actual sexual activity, no admission of any desire to do so, and no transmission of vulgar pictures. I should mention that my worry is that it was a sting of some sort, not that she was actually 15.
I don't know Oregon law, but I am reading this site and stumbled upon California law, if that is similar.
