i was in a site and started talking with what i thought was a 20something lady and then was offered a skype show but the show never happened and i never showed my self but apparently it was a 14 year involved and i had no idea. Am i in trouble?
Country relating to Question: United States
Tried talking to the mother but she is insistant that i am this sexual predator. She has emailed me and asked me to give her one good reason why she shouldnt get the law involved. stated she was going to send all the texts to my friends and family and let me explain it to them. as well as get a lawyer. im not sure if its a prank or not so i wanted to check my options.
Welcome and thank you for your question!I am sorry to learn of your experience. Are you familiar with your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent?
So what your saying is to stop comunicating with her and wait for the lawyer bash to happen? Im in the US Military stationed overseas. im scared right now for my career.
You have nothing to gain by continuing any conversation/communication with the "mother."Anything and everything you say and type is tracked and can be used against you.If the show didn't happen and if you did not expose yourself to the minor and if there was no personal meeting or exchange of nude photos, then there is no crime (especially if you didn't know her age).Stop while you're ahead.What are your options now?If you wish to continue this conversation, click on the Continue Conversation link.

I have not spoken to the mother but she sent me another email and stated:
Do you really think im that stupid? im going to show you evidence? You know you did it, and i have the chatlogs and screen capture, simple as that. Ok, well here is my proposition. if you want me to keep this quiet then send $150 into the following paypal account..... XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX ..... as a gift.
this money will not be for me, but for my daughter, i will be buying her books to read since i already took her laptop and cellphone away from her.
once you have done that, then you have my word nothing more of this will be said.
Thank you for the follow-up. I'm not sure what additional information you are seeking in this regard.
