If they have sex, state laws vary from it being 1st degree to 3rd degree sexual assault. Different countries have different legislation regarding most things.I'm the California parent of a 16 year old who's defiantly talking to a guy who just turned 19 last month.
In May 2004, the Georgia Supreme Court overturned Dixon’s conviction, stating that he should’ve been prosecuted on the lesser charge of misdemeanor statutory rape, which carries a maximum sentence of one year.
He walked out of prison on May 3, 2004, at age 19, a free man.
Our daughter's seeing a therapist who suggested we try to reach the guy's parents (he still lives at home) suggesting they might have more influence over him, especailly if they know what our intentions are.
As long as your not having sex with your partner there is nothing wrong in this relationship.
Last year (while 15) our daughter introduced us to the guy and my husband and I instantly knew he was older.
Our daughter lied and said he was 16 and that he lived in our neighborhood.
She claimed it was rape, he claimed it was consensual, and a jury acquitted him of the charges.
However, because of their age difference, the jury still found Dixon guilty of statutory rape and aggravated child molestation, and sentenced him to a mandatory 10 years in prison under Georgia law.
My husband's had words with this guy and it's like the guy's getting a thrill out of being a royal pain.
Recently someone told me even touching and kissing a minor can be child molestation?
Right away we said we had a problem with his age and made it clear as to our itnentions should the relationship become sexual, and flatly telling our daughter she couldn't see the guy.
