Take a look at two websites for tips about sexting: and Good luck
Hey, I am caught in a rough situation. I have been talking to a girl for 8 months now and we met when I was 17 and she was 16. She lives in Kansas and I live in Florida. I went out to see her in March and her parents allowed it and was okay with us dating. Her dad just recently found a video that I sent to her and he took the phone to the Police. How likely am I to get prosecuted over this? As far as I know the police still have her phone. I don’t know all the details but the police did come to her house,handcuffed her, and took her to the police station last night. She was released with an hour or so. I have heard nothing from the police. How long does it normally take? Dear Garrett: The police have a liberal time limit when an investigation is underway regarding criminal activity. Usually charges must be filed within a year or longer once the crime has been committed. This is called a “statute of limitations.” Once the time period expires without the filing of formal charges, they can’t be filed. To learn more about sexting in your case, google “Kansas sexting laws” and the same for Florida. Good luck. (This is information only – not legal advice).
I was talking to a boy online overseas quite a few months ago and we started talking sexually and he started asking for nudes and I got scared. I made the silly mistake to get a nude photo of the Internet and say it was me but he then replied with real photos of himself. I extremely regret it and I’m very worried about https://hookupdate.net/local-hookup/killeen/ the consequences. I deleted the photo and chat straight away and blocked the user. What could I be charged with? Dear Mel: The potential consequences may depend on the laws in your state as well as the specific facts and circumstances. If you are a minor, you can take a look at the sexting laws in your state (if there is one). It’s good that you deleted the photos and chats and have no contact with him. Unless the boy (or his parents) reports the incident to the police, you will probably hear nothing more about it. It sounds like you have learned from this and just remember that the potential consequences can be quite severe in some cases. Good luck.

We have been sexting since I was 17, ( I am now 18)
I’m here searching for advice because I am incredibly scared for myself now. I live in California and have barely read the sexting laws now, and seeing how I have sexted as a minor over the past year a few times with different people on an online website I am horrified on what could happen to me, I may have sent a total of two or three pictures months ago and now I am scared even though I was almost completely anonymous. All picturess were deleted by myself ages ago, along with the account used. No contact with these people has been made since but I am still worried. Dear Martin: As you know, once you hit “send” your message or photos are out there in cyberspace forever. There’s no taking it back. So, there’s little more for you to do other than what you’ve done in closing the account and deleting on your end the pictures. Hopefully, none of this will come back to bite you.
