Yes, This would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor and lewd conduct with a minor. You should report this to the police or the district attorney to get the relief you want.

As stated below, the district attorney or other prosecuting agency decides whether to file a criminal complaint against a person based on a police report. Make sure your daughter understands the seriousness of this allegation. Someone could be sent to jail or prison, depending on that person's criminal history. Your daughter may have to give sworn testimony in court.

Showing any pornography in that circumstance would be a crime. Contact the police and they'll determine the charges that can be filed. You also have the option of filing a personal injury and tort civil suit for damages against the person. If serious about doing so, feel free to contact me.

You don't need to file charges. The District Attorney will do that after you call the police and report it.

    There are several potential criminal charges, but it's not up to you to "press" charges. That decision is up to the prosecuting agency in whatever jurisdiction this happened in.
