Can I get in trouble for texting a 15 year old girl when I am 21?
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

What would be the content of your text messages to this 15 year old girl?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Well I said that I loved her. But I live in a different state. I'm 21 and she is 15. I was always kind and polite.
Was there anything sexually explicit in your text messages?

Have you had any type of sexual relationship with this 15 year old girl?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No we are not dating. Sex was never mentioned or anything even remotely related. Just alot of affectionate sayings. Like hun and sweetie. For about a month. When we both realized that we were too far apart in age difference to be together right now. I have never been in the same state as this girl. She is in California and I am in Colorado
Based on the facts you have stated, there is nothing illegal that took place, however if there are any criminal allegations that are brought up against you, I would strongly suggest that you do not discuss or talk to anyone about this matter, unless and until you had a chance to consult with a local criminal defense attorney and to have this attorney present during any questioning.

So as long as nothing sexual was mentioned nothing is illegal?
Correct. Adult is allowed to be friends or even to love a minor, as long as there is no attempt is made to entice the minor into some type of a sexual act.
