Telecommunications conduct pertaining to minors can also invoke federal statutes (such as when child pornography is sent via a phone). I've included a couple of relevant statutes below. Likewise, Georgia has statutes that regulate that and Georgia's statutes pertaining to sexual exploitation of children govern children under 18 (this statute is included in the third link below along with mandatory reporting). http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/uscode18/usc_sec_18_00002252----000-.html

The link below actually provides the GA Code outlining the circumstances under which reporting is mandatory.Mandatory Reportinghttp://www.ndaa.org/pdf/Mandatory%20Reporting%20of%20Child%20Abuse%20and%20Neglect_May%202010.pdf
Thank you for your question!
If a person under 18 does any immoral or indecent act to a child between ages 14 and 16, and if the parties are within 4 years of age, the individual has committed a crime. Such a crime may be reported to law enforcement and the state may pursue criminal charges. 16-6-4.http://law.justia.com/georgia/codes/2006/16/16-6-4.html
