A couple weeks ago I was chatting with some people on a chat

A couple weeks ago I was chatting with some people on a chat online, I meet this "guy". We started talking and we end up sexting , I send picture on Snapchat later on he said he wanted to send me some via phone number, so I gave him my number. I deleted the content after 15 min I wasn't interested in keeping it. Later on , on a regular talk he says he is in high school and he likes sports, I panicked reallizing he could be a minor, I continued talk and end up the talk in a nice way. I blocked from everything and took the advantage of changing my phone number due a free upgrade. I have sudpitions of the worst case esceneario, if he really is a minor could I be charged for anything? I know he took a screenshot of my Snapchat but I don't know if he deleted it. Nor I'm sure if he can use those pics against me. Like I said this was on an online chat we are in different states I'm 20 and I'm resident of Texas, it's been almost 1 month and the suspense is killing me, it was completely unintentional to talk to a minor and I feel it's not fair because he shouldn't even be on a chat for 18+, I have no content of any kind, nor harassed or cyber bully him. Should I worry about the future ?

Yeah - I was looking on here at some answers but yes trying

Hi - yeah - I was looking on here at some answers but yes trying to see what I can do - I have a stalker, I have for 7 years now. He is an ex boyfriend - we were together 6 months when I asked him for no contact he went crazy and has been obsessed since. he physically stalked me and I eventually got a restraining order but it was difficult because his location was elusive. That was in Atlanta, then I moved to NYC and he's been harassing and stalking me over the internet for years - then yesterday he showed up at my place of worship in person I was denied a restraining order because the judget very quickly asked me some questions and I got flustered and she said it was a public place and he had every right to be there - I don't know how to prove he was there because he figured out I'd be there, or how to use my previous messages from him to build a case I've been wanting the stalking to stop for years, but he's been across state lines, as well as the fact he knows he can avoid charges with no address - I'm not the only one that has been harassedJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I found a potential address for his sister in NYC where I am but I don't know if he'll actually be there at all - trying to figure out action to take to 1)serve him 2) at least get a order of protection filed so if he shows up again where I am i can sever him 3) even if he leaves the state, put a stop to the cyber stalking and harassment oh sorry - I'm in NYC ManhattanJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: He has not lived in Manhattan - I think he's been in Charleston SC and Colorado no I don't have a lawywer - I talked to the domestic violence hotline and safe horizon adn they said there is nothing I can do that I just have to keep my information as private as possible - I've been doing this for years now and now he showed up physically. I mostly want to know how i can show that he showed up at services yesterday not to go to service, but under the guise as such but was actaully there because he knew I would be - I know him well enough to knowthat's not the service he'd go to , and he also has done this sort of thing to me before, but I don't know how to not come across as paranoidJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: there are others he has cyber harassed, maybe that? I think those are the main points (above)

We started receiving annoying harassing emails (not

We started receiving annoying harassing emails (not threatening) from an unknown email account. We have later determined that someone may have been attempting to get us into trouble making emails look like they are originating from us or something like that. I am not overly tech savvy, but some tech friends explained spoofing and other things to us. What is the likelyhood we need to seek a local attorney. Will law enforcement put much effort into this nonsense since they are not threatening if they are turned over to police? We have nothing to do with this, but after our tech friends talked to us we are concerned someone could make it appear they are from us. Please ask further questions if needed.

Which law enforcement agency investigates crimes in which

Which law enforcement agency investigates crimes in which there is an Internet component (as in crimes the internet was used for communication and perhaps victim intimidation)? As I understand it it is federal jurisdiction. So my question is which agency or department would investigate it?

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are

I have an ex boyfriend and his wife (I believe) who are responsible for filing a criminal complaint against me for cyber harrassment. I had an argument with this ex boyfriend on-line and I got a weird call from a Texas detective telling me to call him regarding a criminal complaint filed against me?! I live in San Diego, CA and have not seen this person for years! He is a womanizer and cheated on me and I'm guessing he has many women angry with him! This is a frivilous complaint, is it okay to ignore it or what should I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He is in Texas and I am in California! He filed some sort of harrassment/cyber complaint against me I'm guessing. I have not threatened him or done anything tell him off on-line! It's crazy!JA: Have any charges been filed? If so, what?Customer: I don't think so. All I know is that he filed a Criminal Complaint against me. For what I do Not know! I had a Texas Detective leave me a VM asking him to call him regarding a criminal complaint that has been filed against me!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No but I would love to connect to the attorney. Thank you.
