If the photos are pornographic in nature or involve a minor you could definitely get in trouble. The transmission of photos over a phone or on the internet may constitute interstate commerce and subject you to harsh federal penalties.

However, if it was a one time accident and the photos are not real offensive, the case probably will not even be pursued because there are so many serious internet porn and telephone porn cases.
