I'll keep the story short. An adult DMs a minor who lives nearby based on a recent post. The minor, unexpectedly to the adult, asks if he wants to meet up. Later on, parent reads DM and claims to have screenshotted them and sent to cyber unit and detective has contacted them. In my opinion, nothing illegal happened, but I can see how the adult would read it as if the adult was trying to meet the minor.
I'd like to know two things:
1) is it possible or likely that the "cyber unit" (not sure if this means FBI) actually will receive this info and can read the DMs and open deleted comments, especially if the account was deleted?
2) what steps would actually occur if the cyber unit finds out the name/info of the adult? Does the adult have to show up in court or would they get arrested and then afterwards explain from their point of view?
