Florida teens arrested for creating nude dipfakes of classmates

Two Florida high school students were arrested in December and charged with a third-degree felony for creating fake nude photos of classmates.

Police said the two boys, aged 13 and 14, used an unnamed “artificial intelligence application” to create explicit images of other students “aged between 12 and 13”.

The teenagers were charged under a 2022 Florida law that criminalizes the distribution of deepfake images of a sexually explicit nature without the victim’s consent.

This incident may become the first case of criminal prosecution of the United States related to deep fake nudes.

Local media reported the incident after students at Pinecrest Cove Academy in Miami were suspended on December 6. They were arrested on December 22.

Although almost all states now have laws against revenge pornography, so far only a few have passed laws that address AI-generated sexual images to one degree or another. Yes, the Beverly Hills Police Department is currently investigating a case where students shared nude deepfake images of their fellow students. But the state’s obscenity law does not directly mention AI-generated images. So far, the scandal has resulted in the local school district voting to exclude five students.

In January, the X social network had to turn off the search for Taylor Swift’s words in response to an influx of pornographic images of the singer generated by neural networks.
