My son has been implicated in a situation where a picture of a nude girl was sent to his cell phone and he forwarded it on to others. It was a picture taken off the internet, and the person who sent it to my son told him it was a girl in their class. It was not the girl from their class, but my son forwarded it on prior to finding out that it was not her. The police officer who went to the school and investigated the incident is an acquaintance of mine and called me to tell me that there had not been a crime committed but that the incident could open up a possible civil case against my son and my family. He also offered to talk to my son and impress upon him how serious this is.
If I allow my son to talk to the officer could the information the officer gets from my son be used against him later? My son is going to be disciplined by myself and wife, but what can I do to protect him from any legal problems?
