VICTORIA, British Columbia, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A Canadian teenager has been found guilty of "sexting" pictures of her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend she found on his cell phone.

The girl, who was 16 at the time she sent the pictures in November 2012, was convicted Friday in juvenile court in Victoria, British Columbia, of distributing child pornography and making threats, a youth prosecutor, Chandra Fisher, said. She was allowed to remain free on bail while she awaits sentencing.

The prosecutor said the girl was angry when she learned her boyfriend, then 17, was still friendly with his former girlfriend. She made threats on Facebook and then broadcast the pictures she discovered.

Fisher said the teen, whose name has not been released because of her age, is the first juvenile convicted in Canada of child pornography in a sexting case.
