BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says changes need to be made to North Dakota's so-called "sexting law" after a judge ruled it unconstitutional.

Stenehjem tells North Dakota Public Radio that he's working on changes to be considered by lawmakers next year.

A district judge in Fargo recently dismissed a case against a male college student accused of secretly recording nude videos of a female roommate. Judge Steven McCullough said the law passed by the Legislature last year barring the secret creation of sexually expressive images is unconstitutional because it's overly broad and outlaws material protected by free-speech rights.

Prosecutors said this week they will not appeal that ruling.
