The Marietta Police Department is inviting parents and teenagers to attend a seminar on the true hazards of underage sex.
“It’s not just the worry of getting pregnant anymore, but now teens face potential criminal consequences to their actions that will literally affect them for the rest of their lives,” Officer David Baldwin said.
The seminar will cover the hazards and criminal consequences for sexting, the use of social media to pass images, underage sex and the victimization of teens as a result of these actions.
“Most teenagers probably don’t even know that their actions are even breaking the law and the end result can be devastating,” Baldwin said. “This seminar is a MUST for parents and teenagers.”
The seminar is tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Elizabeth Porter Recreation Center on Montgomery Street.
