One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship

One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship with a girl who told our entire family that she was 21 yrs old, and both of her parents are deceased. Just about few months ago, our family finds out that his girl friend is a run away teenager and she is actually 17 yrs old from her birth mother. His girl friend is a drug user and an alcoholic. She needs money for buying drugs, so she has been blackmail him "If you don't give me money, I will turn you in as sex offender who has sex with minor." My nephew would like to turn himself in to the court, so my questions are:1. How does he turn himself in?2. What kinds of penalties will he face?The family believes that he does the right things by turning himself in , and admits that it was a mistake for believing her. He did not know of her lie. The family cares about her and urges her to go rehab to get clean, but she only wants money to buy drugs and alcohol. It is better to face the judge than dealing with her black mail. Please help.

I thought my wife was cheating on me with another guy. This

I thought my wife was cheating on me with another guy. This guy has been charged with multiple counts of child porn. Part of his court order is to not have any electronic devices that can access the internet. He has been contacting my wife via the internet. We were texting the other night and the two were telling me different things. I asked him if he would be willing for all three of us to talk on the phone. When he didn't answer me I said "if not I can go to court with all the messages that you sent her because I know you can't be on the internet." He asked if I was blackmailing him. I said No I just want the truth. My question is...can he turn me in for blackmail?

I met a women on a dating site.....I asked her before I saw

I met a women on a dating site.....I asked her before I saw her on the phone if she would stay the night with me at my hotel room. She said yes she would. We both agreed we wouldn't have sex. When I picked her up she had her overnight bag. And after dinner we went to my hotel room. She had a little pj bottoms and a tee shirt on, I had a tee shirt on. Well I turned my back and she put her hand on my shoulder and tapped it I turned around and we started kissing and getting arroused, anyway I asked her to take her panties off and her shirt which she did immediately. She opened her legs and we had sex......later that night I was holding her and kissed her on the cheek and she put her hand on he back of my neck and we kissed and had sex again. All completely 100% unforcedThe next day I went home and texted her once or twice and she then called me saying that she didn't feel comfortable with things and that she filed rape charges but at the present time not filing charges. She said she kept her panties. The police I guess told her to try to work it out and see if things worked out and if she wanted to press charges. Over the past two days I have been communicating with her (in a very nice way) and said I would continue to see her. She also keeps asking for money for things.....in addition the night of her supposedly filing a report, she sends me a very provocative photo of her in a bra.Can you offer advice on what to do about this I know I made a mistake seeing this women but I know it was not forced sex at all.

I live in Michigan and sent explicit photos to someone who said they were 20 and now their "father" called and said that they are 15 and are going to turn it over to police and prosecute me if I don't pay them $6,485 to split the cost of treatment for this person. I didn't know they were a minor and clearly said they were 20- am I in danger?

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed up on crystal meth. He told me he knew how to cook it and that we should go get the stuff to make it. We did, and I paid for some of the things that he used. He is now, for the lack of a better term, blackmailing me to buy more precursors, food and cigarettes. He has been feeding me this elaborate story of someone trying to set him up. He told me to bring him something just a little while ago, then once I was home texted me to tell me that I shouldn't have brought that, the police will go through his dumpster and he will be arrested on precursor possession charges and that I need to be prepared to go post a very large bond. What can I do? I know I am in a legal pickle right now.
