True, I was thinking there was an age difference of like 3 years before it was statutory rape, however after reading, that only means if you're both under 18.When the man turns 18 it is by textbook law, statutory rape for him to have sex with his girlfriend who is still 17..only one year difference. And I'm just glad the craziness is over and the topics are all getting back to normal again.Statutory rape occurs when a person over the age of consent engages in sexual intercourse with someone under the statutory age of consent, also known as a minor.
If so, attorneys respond with an offer to represent you that includes a full attorney profile with details on their fee structure, background, and ratings by other Legal Match users so you can decide if they're the right lawyer for you.
In these states, such as Texas, the age of consent is determined by age differentials between the two persons and limited by a minimum age.
For example, a state might set a minimum age of 14, but limit consent to partners who are within 3 years of their age.
Technically this guy could be in BIG trouble if the relationship goes sour and the parents decide to press charges. On a serious note, nice to see you refrain from the name calling and similar antics. However if you ever feel like hearing a good ole' verbal bashing that would make Greg Geraldo defecate in his grave, hit me up.. If you try and keep a 15 year old from dating they WILL do it, and they WILL be forced to hide it from you..
This is not an attempt at sarcasm or trolling or what have you. When you can let them date, but inform them VERY WELL, keep them on a short leash and keep all activities supervised and keep an open relationship so you know whats going on and that you can/can not trust him/her.
