It is very illegal.
And you moron of a buddy will find out just how illegal (both State and Federal) if he persists.
If I were you then I'd reconsider my choice of pals... just saying...
Wishing you better judgment than your friend and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
Just his being in possession of the nude photos could be seen as possession of child pornography. Just sending it could open them up to third degree felony charges under Florida Statutes 847.0137, further, being in possession could impact further charges, usually with each seperate image as a seperate count. As such there are plenty of cases where this type of situation is occuring, and people are found guilty of multiple counts of possession, sentenced to multiple years in prison, and labeled as a sex offender for life. Additionally, based on the converstions, repetedly asking could also look at some sort of contirbuting to the delinquency of a minor charges. If he continues down this path he will need legal advice soon.
