A Catholic priest in South Carolina won’t face criminal charges for exchanging sexual photos with a minor on social media.

Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah said the minor listed himself as 18 years old when he exchanged explicit photos on the Grindr dating app with 33-year-old Father Raymond Flores.

Abdullah said deputies consulted prosecutors and they agreed no crime was committed because the juvenile said he was an adult.

Abdullah said in a statement that Flores, the juvenile and his family and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston all cooperated.

Abdullah says the juvenile’s family agreed with the decision.
