My question involves criminal law for the state of: arizona/colorado Ok so i met this girl on a phone application for chatting who said she was 18, then after a little said she was 17, then for a long while she wanted to be boyfriend and girlfriend and wanted me to visit her but i said i was waiting til she was 18, so also wanted to talk dirty and send pics.
fast forward to the time she said she was going to be turning 18 and she gets weird, then she admits she is 15, at this point i told her i could no longer talk to her, she kept pleading and pleading and i said no, then she stopped talking so i figured it was over and done, then she text back saying she was in the hospital and had some cancer and that her dad keeps beating her and i am a good person i just wanted her to have someone to talk to, so i let her keep talking but was nothing sexual in nature after finding out her age.
if anything im guilty of being a good person who believed a liar if her dad had submitted my info to the police how long before i would know if he truly did or he was just trying to scare me? If I were you in this situation, I would take the tack that you have been carrying on legitimate conversations with an unstable person, and then you got a text message from an unknown person threatening to kill you.she is in another state and i have never met her I can't answer that question, but I will say this: I assume any 'girl' wanting to suddenly chat with me on the internet is really a guy. I would take a photo of the text message, take the photo to the local police station, and ask them how to deal with it. Pro Tip: NEVER ENGAGE IN SEX TALK ON THE INTERNET WITH TOTAL STRANGERS.I assume any 'girl' wanting to suddenly sex chat with me on the internet is really a guy wearing a badge. If you're a good guy, it's best to behave like a good guy, and that's the kind of thing a good guy would do. Because, as the old cartoon goes, on the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog. Or a cop looking to bust someone looking to meet up with a minor for sex.With all the cancer and beating blah blah, it's unlikely that she's said anything to her father at all, and is simply looking to manipulate you.If her father has indeed found out what she's been up to, you'd likely have a knock at your door in short order.
You'd do well to consider this a lesson learned, and henceforth do all of your thinking with the big head, because if you leave the little one in charge, you may end up in jail.You need to get a copy of any text messages sent between the two of you.If she represented herself as a 18, then anything exchange between that period and the time that you learned she was 17 is of no consequence because in order to convict it needs to be shown that you knew, or should have known the person was underage. Furnishing harmful items to minors; internet activity; classification; definitions A.Once she announced she was 17 and you if you send text containing sexual conversation, then you are open to prosecution for that conduct. It is unlawful for any person, with knowledge of the character of the item involved, to intentionally or in this state will receive the item.That statute states that the person must know, or believe that the person is a minor.Although when dealing with people on a real basis there is little age affirmation defense.
