What is the law about emailing explicit images to a minor,

This answer was rated:

What is the law about emailing explicit images to a minor, in the state of Florida. If the minor is 16 and the person sending the picture is 22? Does the law change depending on the age of the person in the picture?
Hello,

If the minor is not also distributing explicit images, then the older person who sent the photo could face a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor if the person in the photo was an adult. If the person in the photo was a child, then that would be a violation of Federal and State child pornography laws.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
