Both of them could be charged with a crime as it is unlawful to send these photos and unlawful to receive them. If, however, the 14 year old was forced to send them, he may be able to avoid prosecution.
Here's the statute the two of them violated.
You're both still sending nudes to a minor. It doesn't matter whose nudes they are.
It doesn't have to be her. It is illegal for minors to possess pornography. Period. If you are found to be sending it to each other, regardless of whose photos they are, it would be unlawful for you both.
