If I Accidentally Posted A Nude Image Online, Can I Still Be Charged?

It seems highly unlikely that the authorities would charge a person with a sex-related offense for accidentally posting their boyfriend's image online.

However, if circumstantial evidence suggests that it was done intentionally or the boyfriend wants to press charges, then the individual could face serious consequences.

I Didn't Know A Girl I Was Seeing Was Underage Until We Broke Up. Now She Is Threatening To Go To The Police. If I Was Lied To and Wasn't Aware Of Her Age, Will I Still Be Charged?

If an individual did not know and could not have reasonably known that someone was under 18 when they were sexually involved with that person, they should not face charges.

To determine whether the individual knew or should have reasonably known, several details will be considered, including how long the relationship lasted, whether or not they drank alcohol together, and whether or not the person had any form of identification.

Anyone who finds themselves in this situation should hire an attorney. Law enforcement may question the person, arrest the person, or conduct a pretext phone call to listen in on the person and attempt to gather evidence supporting the idea that the individual did know that the person was under the age of 18.

When Would Revenge Porn Or Sexting With A Minor Charge becoming A Federal Charge?

The feds can pick up any case they want, mainly if it involves a crime across state lines. If the internet were used in the commission of a crime, then it would be in the federal government's territory.

However, the federal government won't likely handle minor cases involving sexting or revenge porn. They will, however, get involved with issues that affect child pornography and adults who are trying to contact or meet up with children. The federal government aims to protect children in the United States and other countries from being sexually exploited.

I Posted A Picture Of My Ex In A Swimming Suit Online. Nothing Much Was Shown On Her Body, But I Did Post Some Negative Or Degrading Comments. Is This Considered A Sex Crime?

If someone posted a picture of their ex in a swimming suit online and none of their private parts were showing, and they were at least 18 years old, then the person who posted it probably would not be dealt with by law enforcement but could be subject to civil liability.

If the person violated a restraining order by posting the picture, they could face criminal charges. Contact a California sex crime attorney at our law firm to review your case.
