The new Texas law would fine the lewd photo sender $500 dollars and result in a criminal record if sent without the receiver's consent. This law applies to text messages, email, dating apps, social media, messaging and also airdrop. But how will this new law be enforced and will it really help or just create new problems?

Criminal defense attorney Jennifer Lieser-Deubler feels the intentions of the new law are good but believes the law is too broad. She notes that a photo of someone breastfeeding would be subject to this law. She also feels it will be difficult to enforce and investigate claims. Jennifer explains that currently someone could seek civil damages for receiving an unsolicited nude photo and this law would add a criminal element to the act.
