I am not sure what your question is. I don't believe Amercan attorney think it is okay the websites get away with felonies.
I do believe attorneys will help you understand the law and how it relates to your particular situation. When you have a personal situation, the first person you should call is a lawyer who understands how the law of this land relates to web sites.
As attorney Burdick suggested, your best course of action is to contact FB customer service for help with this problem. Lawsuits are very expensive and you are unlikely to win what you have spent in this scenario.
I often say as cocktail chatter that there is no gravity on the Internet, what goes up does not come down.
That having been said, I have worked for dozens of clients to get information removed or search engine de-listed. I would say the success rate for these kinds of actions...
I believe that the football team would be able to sue you to stop using this domain name. It would probably create confusion in the minds of the visitors about if this was the football teams site or someone else's.
Even if you could win a fight over this domain, the football team has the resources to out spend you in court. It will cost you a fortune to defend a law suit, and I do not think you would win.
I suggest you do not use this domain name.
I have not heard that sexting among consenting adults is a crime in any jurisdiction, but I suppose it could be.
Meanwhile, sexting is never, ever a good idea. What if the wife decides to post these pictures all over the web. It will take you 100's of hours and 1000's of dollars to get all those pix removed.
I suggest you apologise to the wife (it can't hurt) and tell her you will cut off all communication with the husband - which you should do as he has already shown himself to be a...
A garnishment is against your wages, therefore, a domain name is not subject to garnishment.
An attachment, however, can be granted to a creditor upon judicial review, and any of your assets could be attached. Therefore, your domain name could be subject to seizure through an attachment action with the courts.
Don't forget the most important comment by Mr. Schrafel - Have an attorney review your terms and services.

Facebook is only awae of the user's first failure attempt if they have programmed their sign-up process to check for that situation. Further, IP's are often shared by family members who are both older and younger than 13. So I am not sure an IP check alone would work.
However, in your scenario, you say the user used the same email addy. Again, FB would need their sign-up program to check that.
While the arguement can be made FB should be doing more, I am not sure it is a winner. I...
You might consider hiring a lawyer to write the company on your behalf. Often a lawyer's letterhead will get results where an individual complaint is over looked.
As the TOS is your contract with the company, they may be violating their own TOS which may give you a contract action against them. This is speculative, but worth a look.
You may want to discuss your situation with a lawyer in more detail. Most lawyers on Avvo offer a free phone consultation.
Are You Planning on Opening a New E-Commerce Website?
There is much you need to know as you begin your new business. I suggest you do not attempt to write your own legal policies. This is not where your training and background lie, and though you are probably as smart as an attorney, you do not have their experience.

Yes, your son has potential liability for distributing "kiddie porn" even though the pictures were of himself. Before you enter the legal arena, you should consult with a lawyer to discourage unintended consequences.
