Hello I am happy to assist you today.
The law of the state where the activities took place is what matters here. So if the teen went to visit the defendant in Mississippi and the age of consent is 16, then there would be no crime. The sexually explicit language would still be a crime in a state where the age of consent is 18, but it would not be in a state with a 16 age of consent.
Let me know if this is clear.
