The loophole needs to be closed but there does need to be a provision or protection for sexting (i.e. stupid) teenagers. Let's be cognizant that there is a big difference between an adult predator and a teenager showing an idiotic lack of good judgement. The adult needs prison time the child doesn't. The teenagers should not get off completely but at most a night in jail and stern lectures from law enforcement and a judge should encourage them to think before they act.
