I. Am going through a divorce with a longtime problem of infidelity and being truthful. I sent some message and pictures of our family and a half nude w no face to prove he was trying to reconcile . He informed me they were pressing charges and the police would be at my home
He can't press charges but the prosecutor can after the police investigate. This sounds like revenge porn and if that is correct then it is a crime. Hire a lawyer.
It's unclear from your post what pictures you sent, and of whom. . Individuals don't "press charges" they can only report things to the police and the police and the DA will choose whether or not to investigate and bring charges. The individual also can't call the police to your home. It sounds as if this may just be a threat, but to be safe, don't make any other comments online. Sending nude photographs of someone else without their consent can be a crime. More likely if a divorce is ongoing, the police may just direct you to resolve it in the divorce. Infidelity isn't really relevant often in divorce, so it may not matter. If the police do get involved find an attorney and review with them.
