I was reading this article, Man jailed after sending photos of his genitals to undercover police officer.
This article states:
Malcolm Blount, 55, was caught by police after he emailed three pictures of his genitals to an officer posing as the 12-year-old girl.
He was arrested for a few offenses but NOT Causing a child to watch a sexual act (Section 12 of the Sexual Offenses Act 2003). If you look at the Sexual Offences Definitive Guideline
One would think category 3 would apply. Perhaps I am not clear on what "Sexual activity" in the legal sense means. Would this boil down to the genital being erect or flaccid? There has been a recent provision to Section 67 of the serious crime Act (2015), called sexual communications with a child (2017).
which he would have been charged with, but the offense was committed in 2016.
In this instance, what constitutes a bare minimum of sexual activity?
