Alex Phillips Faces Child Porn Charges for MySpace Pics

Atlanta, GA 5/22/2008 12:36 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

A 17-year-old Wisconsin boy is facing felony charges of child pornography after posting naked pictures of his 16-year-old girlfriend on his MySpace page. Police say Alex Phillips was told to take the photos down or face jail time, but he refused telling an investigator, “F*** that, I am keeping them up.”

The photos were taken on a cell phone by the girl, who sent them to Phillips. The teen said he knew he “probably should not have done this” but posted the pictures because “he was venting.”


Phillips was charged with possession of child pornography, defamation and sexual exploitation of a child. His preliminary hearing is set for May 28.
