Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, thanks for the additional information. I am assuming you are not a minor. Well having such conversation can place you at risk for being charged with Impairing the Morals of a Minor or enticing a minor, these are criminal charges. Either of these charges can be serious and mean jail time.
Having conversation with minors over the inter net places you at high risk. I would srongly recommend that you discontinue such behaviors. The conversation does not have to be sexual but asking a child to show her face could very well create a situation for you whereby you are influencing the child to act out behaviors.
If the aunt bring charges you most likely will not get notice until an arrest. You also do not know what allegations the aunt will bring forth.if any..But she will need to show a crime was committed.Just talking to a child would not be a crime in itself but other factors may play a part such as what chat room did you meet the child , was it for minors, sports,hobbies,etc. This may show intent.
Many sex offender laws are wide spread and far reaching.Asking her to show her face would be an indicator and open for interpretation. Yes there is case law whereby adults having chats with minors have been arrested,however an arrest is not a conviction. This is a hot topic and law enforcement as well as parents will react to such even if sex was not mentioned in the conversation. But chances this would not create a conviction if the facts are as you stated.
