Raleigh Sex Crimes Attorney Talks about Sexting, child pornography and the criminalization of our children
Hearing the term 'sex offender' is enough to conjure images of monsters who prey on the weak, all for the satisfaction of their abnormal sexual desires. Knowing that a person is a sex offender is enough to send chills down anyone's spine. And yet, here comes Cormega Copening, a 17-year-old North Carolinian who was charged in September 2015 of sexual exploitation of a minor. Who's that minor, you may ask? It's no other than Cormega Copening himself. The state of North Carolina charged Copening for sharing nude pictures of himself with his girlfriend. Copening was eligible to receive prison time but eventually plead guilty to avoid prison and receive a probationary sentence.
