My question involves criminal law for the state of: DC I'm 18 and I think I sex chatted with a 16 or 17 year old once or twice on omegle.
Not for more than 5 minutes (not that it would matter I guess).
And if the age of consent is 16, I figured it wouldn't be bad to chat...
I feel so stupid and I'm just so worried that I've ruined my life forever if I get caught. And if there are thousands of people on there I can't imagine they would all get prosecuted? to chatroullette; the website specifically provides a TOS that states such activity is not allowed.
Not sure how it would work but I am not a computer programmer either.as such, unless you intentionally sought child porn, there was no intent to commit a crime.It is not illegal to see a naked kid running down the street.Just the same, it is not illegal to accidentally view such on chatroullette. to chatroullette; the website specifically provides a TOS that states such activity is not allowed.Now, if you see it and continue the contact for any length of time, your intent would surely be brought into question and what happens may be very different.
Yeah I just didn't realize that sex chatting was considered illegal.
