Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. It's possible, but highly, highly unlikely. The reason is that there's always a chance that you could say that the text message was misinterpreted, etc... and if there's a reasonable doubt, the jury would acquit. Prosecutors typically only take cases to court if it's clear, and that typically means catching you when you go to meet or even getting your voice on tape saying that you're paying for sex. It's possible that you could be prosecuted by a text message, but very, very unlikely. It's also very, very unlikely that she's with the police. It's FAR more likely that she's trying to scam you, having you pay a certain amount otherwise she'll prosecute you or go to the police. I would suggest that you cease communications with her (because whether or not she's police, there's NOTHING good that would come from continued communications with her). And I really wouldn't worry about it, as it's almost certain that nothing is going to come of it. Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable. Please note that I don't get any credit for the time and effort that I spent on this answer unless and until you rate it positively (3 or more stars). Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!
