We are all weak, and if a person is able to influence us into doing something sinful then that reduces your culpability. Especially in this case, I should think. You went to confession, you expressed sorrow for committing a sin, even a sin that someone more or less forced you to do. You did the correct thing, now continue to do the correct thing and cut off this guy...we face enough temptation in this world from ourselves, we don't need people coaxing us into situations that we could resist on our own.

I haven't spoken to him since my priest asked me to cut off contact with him. I told him I forgave him for what he did, but I couldn't speak to him anymore.

Good move.
