What does the law say about sexual role playing with a child age 12 online?
Yesterday (after having multiple monitoring systems set up) we found out our 12 year old daughter had been sending sexually explicit messages to a 28 year old man on discord. As far as we can tell they never spoke in real life although he repeatedly wanted pictures and for them to talk. The sexual messages were sent as role play, meaning it was written like a story. I can’t help but feel he was grooming her for more. Legally is there anything I can do? We are in NC, he is in PA. We are extremely concerned if he can track her etc. we had numerous protections set up but yes we are taking more safety measures but is there anything we should/could do legally?
