HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Internet crime and the perils of social media were some of the topics discussed by Mississippi's top law enforcement officer at the annual Girls State at Southern Miss Wednesday. Attorney General Jim Hood addressed hundreds of Girls State delegates about subjects ranging from sexting to the theft of intellectual property.

He says it's important that young people understand how technology can benefit them or hurt them now and in the future.

"I think the message I get to talk to them about resonates," said Hood. 

He's spoken at Girls State each year he's been in office.
