An adult can be accused of sexual grooming if they have met with, or entered into communication with, any child under the age of 16. This communication can take place in person or via another mode such as the internet, or by way of a phone call or even through exchanging text messages. The accusation can still be made even in cases where the conversation between the individuals was not of a sexual nature.
Moreover, if a face to face encounter takes place with the objective of sexual activity in mind, then there is the possibility for charges of sexual activity with a minor, or rape, to be made against the adult.
