A: To answer your question would depend upon exactly how old the girl was when you were "sexting" her and how old you were at the time. For example if the girl was 15 years old at the time and you were 21 you would be charged with risk of injury to a minor. I think you would seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney who offers free consultations concerning the specifics of your particular situation.
