Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
That depends...what is it he did that he believes was illegal?
Did he send her any pictures after she disclosed to him her age?
thanksWhat you are describing is, likely, a crime. That is, if he was aware she was a minor child and he sent her nude photos of himself...and received nude photos of her? He could be prosecuted under both state and federal law.That said, what you are describing sounds a LOT like a very common criminal scam...has "dad" (the person claiming to be dad) asked for money yet??
ThanksThat is when you will know it is a scam...I see this regularly (I answer this question or a variation on this theme several times every week).I bet it is a scam.But I also acknowledge your friend committed a crime (assuming that the "girl" is a minor)Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
