An adult can't always be charged for sending sexual messages to a child
We're calling on the Government to urgently bring into force a law that means it's illegal for an adult to send a child sexual messages.
Former England footballer Adam Johnson's second appeal against his conviction and sentence for sexual activity with a child is heard at the Court of Appeal this week.
Johnson was convicted of meeting a 15-year-old girl after grooming her. But the grooming itself was not a crime at the time.
Our campaign Flaw in the Law saw more than 50,000 people sign our petition to fix the loophole in the law, but there's been a 2 year delay in giving police powers to catch adults sending sexual messages to children.
