thats what they class it as which i dont know why ? since it was just a humour text which i thought it was but i didnt sent it

It can't be the text. S7 is sexual assault of a child.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
yes what it says on my bail condtion

Well, it might well but there must be a another allegation. You would have been interviewed about this though and know what was put to you.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
ive read it so what could be the worse outcome from this? im stressing out as could ruin my life?

You don't particularly want to be convicted of a sex offence but it wouldn't lead to custody

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
no i dont which is worrying me as i didnt sent the text i was guilty of being silly and type it and then handing it back which i thought she detele it
