    Kyle’s Answer

    If a 17 year old takes nude photographs of their self and sends it to someone else, they committed three serious crimes: manufacturing, possessing, and distributing child pornography. The 17 year old needs an attorney immediately to navigate the minefield of getting their content offline so as to protect their reputation while, at the same time, avoiding a criminal prosecution that can result in serious punishment. Your story is a variation of "revenge pornography". Get a lawyer and stop screwing around--you are playing with fire by not getting ahead of the problem.
