19 dating 16 legal
I have read the penal codes and they are confusing so I thought I would ask you about it.
Could you please tell me everything and maybe show me laws to give me a little more confidence? Dear Jeff, It seems arbitrary that sex with your girlfriend becomes illegal when you reach your eighteenth birthday, but it's true.
Anyone can press charges against you for statutory rape in California, because she will still be younger than 18.
If you are convicted, however, California law will count it as a misdemeanor, and not a felony, because you are less than three years older than she is.
Dear Reader, We've received more questions about statutory rape concerning age-gap distinctions, so I'll try to answer what I didn't cover in the previous article on statutory rape. Dear Panel, If a minor has sex with a minor for example: a 17 year guy having sex with a 17 year old girl is that statutory rape since they are both of "legal" age to have sex?
Ashley female, age 17, USA Dear Ashley, If both people having consensual sex are the same age, it's not statutory rape.
And if you're asking about sex, the age of consent in Maine is 16, and therefore it is legal (but not advisable, in my opinion) for a 16 year old to have sex with a 23 year old.
In many other American states, it would be illegal. You will change and mature as you pass those milestones and deal with the temptations those milestones allow you.
person 18 years old has sexual penetration with person under 16 where defendant lives in same house as victim and has authority over victim or holds a position of authority related to victim. 16 is the age of consent and at that age they can consent to sex with anyone 16 and older as long as that person is not related,living or in a position of authority of the victim.Dear Panel, I am currently 17 and my girlfriend is 16.We have our birthdays on the same day which is March 25. Can anyone besides her call Statutory Rape on me including her parents?His mother knew that we were dating and didn't care.We are both Christians and we do not believe in premarital sex.
