Q: Can I get justice for being groomed

Last year and I got into an argument with a guy online. He groomed me and commented on my photos. Stating how age was just a number and with a chest as big as mines it doesn't matter what my age is. Even make plans to meet me, that I backed out of. We swapped Snaps, and he blackmailed me for nudes. The guy is 18 and I was 15. He sent videos of him deleting the photos and everything, as well as our entire chat history. Is there anything I can do now? Even though I have no trace of him? I heard that if I do, I would be charged even if I was groomed by him. I think I found his account but I'm not sure.
