However, a search of his phone did take place. And in addition to nude photos of Copening, police also allegedly found nude photos of his girlfriend. In North Carolina, sending or receiving sexually explicit images, or "sexting," is illegal for the under-18s, even though the age of consent is 16. Police charged both Copening and his girlfriend, as both were 16 at the time the photos were taken. (They are now both 17.). There is no evidence that the pictures had been shared with anyone. However, the Fayetteville Observer said Copening was charged in February not only with sexual exploitation of a minor -- his girlfriend -- but also with making nude photos of himself and possessing them.

Some might wonder whether those prosecuting could also consider the meaning of making good decisions. Swain told me that the statutory rape charges in the related case are "still pending court."On the charges affecting him, Copening agreed to plead guilty to two counts of disseminating harmful material to minors, in return for all the other charges related to sexual exploitation being dropped. Copening's girlfriend, who was also charged, reportedly agreed to a similar plea deal. The law doesn't seemed to have kept up with technology. One might imagine, though, that those who enact the law might have modernized their interpretations.

In order to use the new feature, however, you'll first need to activate it. There are two methods for doing so, one on your iPhone, the other on the watch itself. Going forward, you simply need to place your Apple Watch on its side while connected to a charger for Nightstand Mode to become active. Your watch will display the current time, date, next alarm and battery percentage. Tap the screen, or press either of the physical buttons on the watch in order to display the current time after the screen turns off. Shortly before your alarm goes off, Nightstand Mode will slowly brighten the display on the watch until your alarm goes off. Once it does, you can use either the digital crown or the side button to quiet or snooze the alarm.
