Private communications on the “internet” whether through social media, chat rooms or text, are monitored by law enforcement. When choosing to communicate with someone, make sure you are communicating with an adult…meaning a person over the age of 18. Sexual conversations, sharing of sexual images and arranging to meet are all crimes when dealing with minors.
