A 12-year-old girl was pressured by an online paedophile into sending indecent images of herself has been told she could now face criminal charges.
This despite being groomed by the online paedo, the schoolgirl is now facing a police investigation for sending an indecent image.
The sicko found his victim on Instagram and demanded increasingly more explicit images.
But while the sex Offender is free it seems the girl will face a police investigation into sending the image.
Her mother told reporters: ‘She’s the victim. She was coerced into sending it. There’s a paedophile out there yet they’re talking about criminalising a little girl.
‘She’s scared, upset, worrying about what is going to happen and I’m questioning if I did the right thing in reporting it.
‘My child is a victim of grooming but now she might be branded a criminal. If this is happening it could put other parents off reporting abuse. How many people actually knew this was the law?’
