Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. Who sent it to a lot of people? The friend having sex or the friend you were with?
You could be charged with voyeurism under the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 in my opinion. However the couple could be charged with indecency in a public place. It might be better that both sets of parties agree to walk away from this as everybody could end up being charged. Your worst case scenario is 12 months in prison and a fine but that is very unlikely. I would make a written apology to the girl and see if she would drop this on the basis that she would also come in for criticism at any future court case.
The police may want to warn you. Or they want to proceed with charges anyway. In Scotland they can do that. However that is speculation. You can see what they want but under no circumstances say anything that might incriminate you. Make no admissions. And you are entitled to have a solicitor present.
