Hey there! It’s Vieja. Just a quick note; from a legal standpoint, any of these crimes mentioned under here (except some actions committed by staff) are crimes everywhere around the globe. Although it is hard to make a case (trust me, it is); the illegality of these actions makes them. I´ll list some jurisprudence and doctrine (previous cases and law), supporting this crime, just for you guys to know. Any of these actions ARE A CRIME and can carry legal repercussions depending on where you are located.

· Grooming: Grooming by definition (18 USCS § 2422 – United States Criminal Code) applies to Whoever knowingly persuades, induces, entices, or coerces any individual to travel in interstate or foreign commerce, or in any Territory or Possession of *the United States* (I took it from the US code, it’s easier to follow this way. If not I have to translate from Spanish), to engage in prostitution, or in any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.(b) Whoever, using the mail or any facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce, or within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of *the United States* knowingly persuades, induces, entices, or coerces any individual who has not attained the age of 18 years, to engage in prostitution or any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title and imprisoned not less than 10 years or for life”.
