[Illinois] Gov. Pat Quinn signed several bills into law Monday, including legislation which protects minors from sexually explicit images through "sexting."

"Sexting" is when a person sends sexually explicit photos or messages via cell phone on the Internet.

The package of legislation also included new laws to protect children from Internet-based sex offenders who use chat rooms to engage in sex acts with someone whom they believe to be a child, and new registration requirements for convicted sex offenders.
