"When there's a meaningful age difference, such that the perpetrator and victim are not in the same age group, as a result of that, the victim may not be able to advocate for themselves." Somehow the girl is a "victim" in seven states, and a perfectly capable young woman in the rest. As Jeffrey Fisher, Esquivel-Quintana's lawyer, argued, "You have an extraordinary case here, where the government is trying to deport somebody for committing something that isn't even a crime under federal [law] and the vast majority of states." How about we don't label sex as "abuse" in the first place, when there is zero evidence of force, trickery, or coercion?
(do not believe intercourse has happened yet and his parents are wanting to stop this and get through to him) Can someone make this clear to me of the law and at what point in touching is it crossing the line, I am having a hard time getting through to both sides about the situation.
I heard any touching is against the law and just because her parents are letting her date it does not mean he can be suxual or have intercourse with her????
The age of consent in other states ranges from ages 14 to 18.
Some states base the penalty for violations on the age of the offender, with older offenders receiving harsher penalties.
