My question involves criminal law for the state of: Minnesota
My brother is 19 years old and is extremely nervous. Back in March, he was apparently in a chat room and talked to a girl he believed was 13. The conversation turned explicit, and he sent a nude photo. About two weeks ago, he gets an email from a person who was actually posing as the 13 year old. This person said things like, "the people managed to get a hold of your stats, so I hope you enjoy the rest of your life, pedophile." He also said, "omg this is SO perfect for lulz."
This person had created a MySpace account posing as my brother, using the nude photo on the page. He is claiming to be my brother and tries to sound gay and very very sick on the profile.
First of all, does anyone have any idea of what my brother should do? I mean, he's not sure if this person is serious about turning him in, and that's what is most torturing. The person is clearly harrassing my brother.
He also says he will post the screenshots of the chat and the picture on "Encyclopedia Dramatica." The website seems to be some kind of ridiculous site that is quite explicit and crude.
Also, if anyone has some statutes for Minnesota on this, I'd appreciate any info. And if anyone with strong knowledge can PM if they want, and I can show you the emails this poser has sent my brother. I'd like some opinions, because the emails are pretty odd.
Any help appreciated.
