15 schoolboys get probation for spreading AI-created naked images of girls in Spain

A JUVENILE court in Extremadura has sentenced 15 schoolboys to a year’s probation after they created and spread AI-generated naked images of their female classmates and friends.

20 girls aged mainly between 12 and 15 years were affected by the action last September.

Police were called in after parents in Almendralejo reported fake and inappropriate images of their daughters circulating on two WhatsApp groups.

Several of the girls needed psychological treatment after the images were released.

The Badajoz Juvenile Court found the boys responsible for a total of 20 crimes of child pornography and another 20 crimes against moral integrity for ‘manipulating with artificial intelligence and disseminating images of minors so that they appear naked’.

One mother of the victims said last year: “Many girls were completely terrified and had tremendous anxiety attacks because they were suffering this in silence.”

“They felt bad and were afraid to tell and be blamed for it.”

A youth court in the city of Badajoz convicted the children of 20 counts of creating child abuse material and another 20 against the moral integrity of their victims.

According to the High Court of Justice of Extremadura, the probation sentence will include ‘sexual training’ on the ‘responsible use of information and communication technologies and awareness of equality and gender’.

Another mother, Miriam Al Adib Mendiri, said: “We did not want the boys to be jailed but to be educated, which is included in the sentence.”

“We have managed to change history,” she added.
