Anthony Weiner may have exposed himself to criminal charges and more child custody problems with his alleged inappropriate texting with a 15-year-old girl, legal experts told the Daily News. At least he dealt with adults before this,” former prosecutor turned celebrity lawyer Raoul Felder said of the 52-year-old Weiner’s online relationship with a 15-year-old North Carolina girl.

"Now you're in the ‘Oh my God’ area." "I would think it's time for some kind of police action," Felder said.

World of teen sex chat-16

Morris Fodeman, a former federal prosecutor in Brooklyn, said it’s a federal crime “to knowingly send obscene material through the mail or over the internet to a minor under the age of 16 years of age.” Anthony Weiner allegedly sexted with 15-year-old girl “There has been much debate in the courts over the years about what constitutes ‘obscene,’ but certainly if the description of these chats is accurate and he knew the person he was chatting with was under 16, there may be criminal exposure here for Mr. Criminal and matrimonial lawyers said they expect police and the city Administration for Children’s Services to be more aggressive now that Weiner may be interacting with a minor.

ACS started investigating Weiner last month after another of his sexting partners shared a picture he sent her of him aroused in his underwear as his young son slept next to him.

But considering the kinds of things that cops in this country frequently get away with—murder, sexual assault, physical abuse, actual sex with minors—the severe concern in this case rings either a bit paranoid or a bit hollow.

The feds didn't step in, for instance, when dozens of cops were under investigation for sexting and having sex with an underage girl in Oakland, California. prosecutors have been big lately on exercising jurisdiction over both social media and sexting, and these have also been the subject of much attention in Congress lately.

"It raises a lot of questions about whether this is criminal behavior,” Cohen said.

And while the texts show Weiner was aware the girl was a high school student, Cohen said it legally doesn't matter if he knew she was 15 or not.

Or when a Chicago cop was arrested for trafficking a 14-year-old. All of this helps suggest the decision to make this a federal matter is based more on opportunism and political agendas than the severity of O'Kimosh's crime or his threat to the public.

Or in the recent case of a Bronx officer arrestd for paying to make sex tapes with a minor. The federal government has been exercising increasing control over sex-crime-related matters of all sorts lately.

And the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA)—a misleadingly named bill that actually hinders efforts to stop sexual exploitation—would amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to deny legal immunity to websites and services whose sites were found to enable certain sex crimes.

SESTA is fraudulently sold as a way to target only "bad" sites like Backpage, and this week Facebook joined several other tech giants in supporting it.

Adolescence is the time when the teenager goes through emotional and psychological changes.
