I have a similar question to the topic above. I met a girl

Hello, i have a similar question to the topic above.I met a girl via a dating website known as plenty of fish. You must be 18 and older to join this website. I introduced myself in a way that may have seemed sexual but it wasnt. Afterwards, she asked for my phone number to text and i agreed.Next, she contacted me via text very shortly after introducing herself. Then, she asked to send a pic and i sent a few face pictures only following her face pics. Then, she asked my name and what i do for a living. Seemed like a normal conversation. Shortly after, she asked me to send her a sexy pic following up with multiple unsolicited sexual pictures of her own. I responded with what do you mean a sexy pic"? She responded with "whatever makes a girls panties wet". I was skeptical, but wasnt thinking and sent a few genitlia photos with no face pic. Next, she seemed she enjoyed the photos and sent more nude photos of herself. I followed up with a couple more and was going to stop the conversation as it seemed too skeptical.Afterwards, she asked more personal questions like my last name and where im located. Then started to call my phone. I never answered. Then, she sent a text threatening to forward our conversation to the tampa police department if i did not answer. I still did not answer. Finally, she sent a final text of saying she has reported me to the fbi for investigation of child porn, solicitation, messing with a minor, kidnapping, and to have an issue for my arrest. Again, this was the threat of me not answering. Then, my final response via text was " i met you on a dating website plenty of fish which requires 18 and older and i never asked for sexual photos.All in all, i never intended any of this. Would never have sexual contact with a minor and have no idea why she wanted me to answer my phone. Im scared that this is for real and dont know what would happen if i did actually meet up with the person.

My question is based on a hypothetical situation based in

My question is based on a hypothetical situation based in Michigan. I understand that the answer may vary from different circumstances. However I would like to get most likely outcome (from practical perspective not theoretical).1. Do police follow up a txt message in an escort phone? There is no explicit mention of “ sexual activities in exchange of money”, but the conversation seems like a meeting was arranged.2. Can alone a txt message provide enough evidence? As the argument can be raised asking who was using that phone at particular time? And there was no physical evidence of actual meeting- the conversation may be just a joke.3. What is the possibilities of the fact that police will follow up a txt massage 2 years back?

My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a

My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a domestic violence case that his friend committed. The friend kidnapped and beat the crap out of his estranged wife and then called my husband to tell him about it. My husband told him to take her home or let her go ASAP or I(me) would call the cops. 10 minuted later her and their daughter were on our doorstep. My husband does not want to be involved. He does not want to testify against his friend...his estranged wife (the victim) doesn't want my husband to get involved either. By him testifying means the difference between a 3 year sentence and a 15 yr sentence. He doesn't want that on his conscious for putting away his friend. The have all the evidence they need- pictures, doctors notes, hospital visits, testimony from other people. How can he get out of testifying???JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen? Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: great state of California...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It happened about 9 months ago. It's going to trial because the stupid idiot didn't take a plea!
