I meet an 18 year old on an online dating website, we had sex once but have talked on and off for a couple of months, I am 25, he told me he is 16 not 18, can I get in trouble..
He has admitted that he lied to me, I informed him as soon as I found out that we would not have any sex again. Is there any form of legal action should I take?
