Im 18 dating a 15
You are not required to report this to this to the authorities because your daughter not a minor.
I feel like my hands are tied so do I or am I required to report this to the authorities?
But the law states that he is not old enough to consent to sex with an adult.
Yes your daughter will pay the penalty if the parents of the son do not agree with the relationship. If they know then you should talk to them and find out if they agree!!
I worry because they did sneak out one night until 7 in the morning and stayed together talking they said. Here is the statute: They are very close to the cutoff age, I would not permit the relationship to be free and unsupervised.
We live in Arizona and she is constantly sneaking around calling him and him her even though I've forbid them to see each other. Your son could be in serious trouble if they have sex and her parent's press charges.(1) If the minor is under age 15, five years in prison; (2) if the offender is at least age 18 or is tried as an adult and the minor was age 12 or younger, life in prison and the offender is ineligible for release until serving 35 years; (3) if the offender is at least 18 or tried as an adult and the victim is age 12, 13, or 14, the presumptive sentence is 20 years; or (4) if the minor is at least age 15, it is punishable by one year in prison So will the law accept their word that there has been no sex even if they stayed out all night until 7 in the morning when she tried sneaking back into the house?
If at any time the daughters parents feel your son is sleeping with their daughter they can press statutory rape charges against your son.
