SHELTON — Snapping a racy photo and sending it to a friend via text message could have greater implications than teenagers realize. That was the message here tonight at Shelton Intermediate School, where law enforcement personnel joined state lawmakers in tackling the subject of sexting. Rep. Jason Perillo joined legislators Themis Klarides and Larry Miller in building a panel of experts on juvenile crimes and the technology that enables them. Check out the presentation from Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo, who, like state police Sgt. James Smith, warned that teenagers who send salacious texts could find themselves on the wrong side of the law. What’s more, many young people don’t realize the psychological effects of sexting. Check out Smith’s presentation. The three state legislators with the law enforcement officials — including municipal officers from Derby and Shelton — fielded questions on a wide variety of topics — from Facebook to cyber-bullying. Education officials from Derby and Shelton also participated. For his part, Miller, who represents part of Shelton, described the “addiction” many young people have to their cellular phones — a habit he said has some kids sending about 2,000 text messages a month. Shelton representative Perillo told the audience that more and more employers comb the Internet for information on potential hires and that a sexting slip-up or an awkward Facebook photo could see them toss your resume into the trash. Educators warned the same about college admissions. Klarides, who represents nearby Derby, returned repeatedly to a similar point: Once a picture ends up in cyberspace, it’s impossible to get it back.
