The age of consent is the age at which a person is considered to be legally competent to consent to sexual acts, and is thus the minimum age of a person with whom another person is legally permitted to engage in sexual activity.
The distinguishing aspect of the age of consent laws is that the person below the minimum age is regarded as the victim, and their sex partner as the offender.
Thanks With no sexual contact occurring, there really isn't much legal basis for stopping it.
However, if the parents say the dating must end but it continues, then a charge for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor might come into play.
I'm older than her by a few years, making her under the age of consent (i believe). Her dad doesn't want her seeing me til she's 18, but we still end up hanging out. We'll kiss and be affectionate, but nothing beyond that. While I know a lot of people think that means sexual consent, the more I read, the more it can mean just the ability to make decisions on your own, including those of sexual nature.
Am I breaking the law even just seeing this girl in a one-on-one level, since her father is not consenting of us seeing each other? I've never encouraged her to break the rules of her parents, I just accept the times when she says she'd like to see me. Basically if her father ever filed a police report, I just want to make sure I could never have sexual assualt charges filed against me... While I know a lot of people think that means sexual consent, the more I read, the more it can mean just the ability to make decisions on your own, including those of sexual nature.
All sexual activity without consent is a criminal offence, regardless of age.
Most every state has some kind of laws that make it a crime to interfere with their children.
In other words, a person must be at least 16 years old to be able to legally agree to sexual activity.
A 14 or 15 year old can consent to sexual activity as long as the partner is less than five years older and there is no relationship of trust, authority or dependency or any other exploitation of the young person.
I do not feel I am encouraging her to be delinquent.. Actually, the age of consent law simply says you would not be commiting a crime if she were to fall oner her back and say yes to you having your way with her.
It does NOT give her leave to run away, sneak out of the house, or do any of the other actions reserved for adults. And if it were MY daughter you were encouraging to sneak out and disobey my rules, and my curfew, I would do all I could to have you charged.
