Girl posts nude pics, is charged with kid porn
New Jersey teen may have to register as a sex offender
A 14-year-old from Trenton New Jersey girl has been accused of child pornography after posting nearly 30 explicit nude pictures of herself on MySpace.com — charges that could force her to register as a sex offender if convicted.
The case comes as prosecutors nationwide pursue child pornography cases resulting from kids sending nude photos to one another over cell phones and e-mail. Legal experts, though, could not recall another case of a child porn charge resulting from a teen's posting to a social networking site.
MySpace would not comment on the New Jersey investigation, but the News Corp.-owned company has a team that reviews its network for inappropriate images. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tipped off a state task force, which alerted the Passaic County Sheriff's Office.
The girl posted the photos because "she wanted her boyfriend to see them,"
The teen, whose name has not been released because of her age, was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

Sink Hole Swallows Girl During Ballgame
9-Year-Old's Friends Pull Her Out Of Hole
A 9-year-old girl playing baseball on Portland city land Wednesday was suddenly swallowed by a sink hole and rescued by the children playing with her.
The child's grandmother said it's a miracle her granddaughter is alive after she fell through the top of an old septic or cesspool system in a vacant lot owned by the city of Portland.
What started as a carefree game of baseball Wednesday turned scary for three children when Paje Wiklund, 9, disappeared under the ground as she was running to first base.
The land is owned by Portland Parks, but it's undeveloped. The city said it does everything possible to make sure land it owns has no hidden dangers, but no one knew the old septic system was there.
City workers filled the hole.
