Teens in danger of "sexting", sending inappropriate images to each other and/or strangers.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new study indicates that more kids may being "sexting" than you probably think.

A poll by The Associated Press and MTV finds that more than a quarter of young people have been involved in some form of sexting.

For those who don't know, sexting is the practice of sharing sexually explicit photos, videos and chat by cell phone or online. About half of those surveyed didn't realize that young people across the country -- in Florida, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania -- have faced charges for sending such pictures. Almost as many knew it was a problem -- and did it anyway.
