Winston-salem, NC asked in Federal Crimes, International Law and Internet Law for North Carolina

Q: Could a 35 y/o male living in another country, get in trouble for talking to a 14 year old female who lives in N.C.?

So I’m a 14 y/o female and recently a 35 y/o male has been contacting me through social media. At first our conversations were mutual and friendly. But we kept talking and now he’s interested in me romantically and sexually and I’m starting to feel uncomfortable. Also he lives in another country and he doesn’t want me to tell anyone about him. He’s also aware that I’m 14 but he still tries to have sexual conversations with me.

A: Yes, and although this is not directly international law, my suggestion is that you cut him off from you social media and contact local law enforcement.

Good Luck
