Under age dating in california
The laws are premised on the assumption that a minor does not have the capability of giving informed consent to sex.Regardless if the person does so willingly and voluntarily and with full knowledge of the nature of the act and without any type of coercion, intimidation or physical force.And sex traffickers will still be held accountable.As Snopes noted in September when the law was passed: This does not, however, mean that child prostitution is legal.This is akin to or similar to the defense of “mistake of fact.”Factors that a prosecutor, jury or judge acting as the trier-of-fact will look at include: A minor victim, like an adult, may have felt slighted by you or is seeking to punish you for rejecting him/her by falsely accusing you of having had sex.However, if there are no available semen samples to match your DNA, then other evidence may be needed to prove that you did engage in sexual intercourse.Wait, so if I’m under the age of consent then what happens if I have consensual sex with someone else who is also under the age of consent?
Essentially, if you are under 18 years old and the alleged victim is also under 18, and you engage in sexual activity with the alleged victim, you could still be charged with statutory rape.
When your teenage son or daughter is dating a fellow high school student who is still a minor after he or she turns 18 years old, it could be considered statutory rape if the couple engages in sexual activity, even if the sex was consensual.
As long as the other person is still under 18, it is a crime for your son or daughter to have sexual intercourse with that person even if it started prior to your son or daughter turning 18.
Every time we write about it we get a ton of comments claiming that we’re being unfair, that we don’t believe in true love and that we’re old fuddy duddies who aren’t getting any.
Well, I can assure you, we’re none of those things, but we are definitely young women who are trying to look out for y’all.
