Okay, so I'm not going to get into super detail about who I am, where i live, my age, etc. But for the sake of describing my case I will provide some information. I live in New York and when I was a teen (17 years old) I sent a picture of my buttocks to a stranger i met online who kept begging and begging for a picture. And when I refused to show him any more than that he called me a b*tch. The thing is, if I remember right, he was an adult and he asked me if I was an adult (I lied to him). But, I don't exactly remember and he was a stranger online so I really don't know his age. If he is or is not an adult, could this get me in trouble? What are possible criminal charges, statute of limitations, and could this affect me getting a job in the future (whether it goes to court or doesn't go to court)?
Generally no, only the adult receiving or soliciting these types of things might be subject to criminal charges, not the minor. But even then only if law enforcement was somehow made aware of these activities AND decided to pursue them. Many factors go into this. Please, please avoid strangers online. So many predators out there.

The adult is the one with problems, not you. Also, how would they prove it was your butt???
Any response I provide is meant as a general view on the subject and is no way intended to be specific legal advice to any individual. If you wish specific advice, you should hire and consult with an attorney of your choosing.
Other than making some poor choices it doesn't sound like you did anything illegal. How long ago did this happen?
