Ashley female, age 17, USA Dear Ashley, If both people having consensual sex are the same age, it's not statutory rape.But it may be confusing to some people about the term "minor" and the concept of when it is "legal" to have sex. I read that as long as there is no more than 3 years' difference, it is legal. Confused female, age 16, USA Dear Confused, It is illegal to have sex with him, because the age of consent in California is 18.For instance, having you slapped with a restraining order, for starters. Until he is of legal age to move out, support himself, and do as he pleases, they may as well be as gods to him. I've been dating this guy for over a year, we're engaged, but don't plan on getting married until he's 21. if he's over 16 its not satutary rape, unless there's a big different in age.They say that the age of consent being 16 only applies to children who's parents sign for emancipation, which they absolutely will not do. Age of consent and emancipation are completely unrelated.
Can a 16 year old girl go out with an 18 year old Lets say the guy was dating the girl since he was 17 and just because he turned 18 doesn't mean he should break up with his gf-does it?
A two-year age difference isn’t particularly alarming, and dating is fairly standard at that age.
But if these teens are having sex, and you live in a state where prosecutors aggressively enforce the law, it’s possible that your son could be charged with statutory rape.
My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana My name is Jesse, and I'm a 19 year old girl (20 in Jan. But, his mom and step dad think I'm too old for him, and that we'll get in trouble with the law because "things happen" (their words, not mine, I have more confidence in my morals).
We have done nothing that could be considered even remotely sexual, and don't plan to unless we're married.
