A popular chat show is being investigated by police after police say they received a tip that a person from one of the shows online chats had sexually assaulted someone.
Police say the caller in question was a known member of the “B-List” chat group, and that they were looking for the suspect in connection with the sexual assault.
In a statement to ABC News, the FBI said the chat chat program was an online chat service that allowed members to post anonymously about sexual activities.
“The chat rooms that have been accessed via the internet have been used to engage in sexual activity,” FBI Special Agent Kevin Tressell said in the statement.
“If you are an individual who is an adult and you engage in a sexual act with another person who is underage, you could be subject to prosecution under federal sex offender laws.”
The chat room was first uncovered by a local news station, but it is not clear if it was ever used by the show.
The FBI says the chat rooms are used to talk about sex acts that would not otherwise be criminalized.
“As such, it is a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to access, transmit, or post any content from or about these sites,” the statement read.
“This site is being used for adult material that is illegal in most states.”
The show’s creator says he is cooperating with the investigation.
“I am very relieved that it is being taken seriously,” he said in a statement.
