thank you, XXXXX XXXXX other part of my question was can anyone, the parent, police, etc even contact the older man in any way?
how about if the only way they would know who he was would be to search internet records, IP addresses etc? can anyone legally do that in this situation?

yes but legally, the police or others couldnt do anything with that information in this situation, correct? since nothing illegal happened?
so just to clarify, no one could contact him legally to question him, correct?
anyone including the police? the only way they would know who he was would be to get information from internet companies, etc
so the police could legally obtain this information from internet providers and question hi even though she is over 16?
the parents found out, and she has to go talk to an investigator. Based on her age, youve told me nothing illegal took place but it would be a bad thing for him if people showed up asking questions. My assumption is that even if the parents are upset, if she is of age, I cant imagine the police could dig up his information and go talk to him, simply because the parents are upset? they would not have just cause under the law to find this person and question him based on the parents being upset, but her being of age?
in minnesota. she responded to a craigslist ad he had.
no, not at all
can I ask a follow up question on this?
well it has to do with the age of consent, I am assuming that age of consent not only addresses consent for sexual contact but also talking online about sexual issues and sending images etc? in other words could this man be in trouble because he was exchanging emails and images or is that all covered under the age of consent?
located both in MN, yes she did
The images were sent by her at the time she said she was 18, when she finally told him she was 16 he deleted the emails. does that make a difference? do you have any suggestions for someone in the twin city area who would handle something like this?
I wish you the best of luck!
