I have been 18 for 4 months and I have screwed up. A guy I met on snapchat sent me sexual pics and we both chatted through snapchat. After he told me he was 14, i wanted to block him but he said we both are just getting off nothing else. now he is blackmailing me for pictures and telling me hell report me if i don't get him off. what do i do?
You can't protect yourself from past potentially criminal behavior by giving in to demands to commit further acts of criminal behavior.
Right now, were you to be confronted about the pictures exchanged prior to you acquiring knowledge that the other person was 14, you could at least say that you weren't aware of their age but now you know and any pictures exchanged would be a knowing violation of the law.
Block this person ASAP and if he does in fact report you, keep your mouth shut and ask for a lawyer. Chances are that this person is not going to report you and is just trying to manipulate you.
Block them ASAP. Do not post any more facts about this case in a public forum. If any detectives call hire an attorney to call them back. This will help insure that its a real detective and not more of a scam/blackmail
