Are there legal responsibilities in being an accountability partner?

Couple of questions:

1. If an accountability partner sees websites on a report that are illegal within a jurisdiction what action should they take?

2. If an accountability partner has to have several conversations with someone about pornography on their report should that be escalated? (I appreciate that the extent to which pornography is legal varies - I am thinking more of the way the CE material suggests there is a risk that people will continue into worse things). Should it be highlighted to church leaders/youth team What about a professional body depending on the persons occupation?  I am thinking of the implications of the person being subsequently convicted of an abuse related offence and whether an accountability partner would become part of the investigation for being aware that someone was potentially at higher risk of committing the offence.
