@xnoxiousx: Well, I look at it like this: If you are eighteen and the girl is sixteen, but you're in college, eh, it's kind of creepy.

If the 18 year old has a criminal record, or is a sex offender, or is a teacher or coach or in another position of trust or authority, it will not be legal for the 18 year old to date the 16 year old.

Also, it is not legal for the 18 year old to have sex with the 16 year old.

If we cannot find any place for him, instead of being released, he'll be sent to a sex offender house where he'll be forced to live until he can get a place with a relative that the dept of corrections okays.

Because they moved him from a prison near me to one 5 hours away, I haven't been able to visit him, or hear his voice for almost 2 1/2 years. Xena, I am so sorry to hear about your son (and your dad, he is in my thoughts and prayers). My brother got himself into trouble and there is NO lienancy what-so-ever.

..remember that even if the parents refuse to press charges the DA can go against their wishes because, in IL, it is statutory rape for the next year or two.

For your own sake, break up with her and sever contact until she hits the age of consent. I've spoken to many attorneys and all have told me that although the law reads one way, the courts have consistantly ignored the laws. The thread was from 2006 so I don't know how he is doing currently but I pray that things are going better for him. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Animals bring love to our hearts and warmth to our souls. My Dad is facing some more surgery, so please pray for him. He was sentenced again, but he's now in a great prison and heavily involved in classes and the prison ministry. They are both in high school, he's a senior and she's a junior about to be 17 in May. girl and the girl's mom called her brother and said if he didn't leave her alone that she would call the cops and have him arrested for statutory rape.However, if the two of you are still in high school, who cares. I only think its a big deal if its say an older college or grad student (or older) dating a highschooler.Of course where I live the age of consent is 18 but whatever.For my son, he cannot live with me because I live 3 blocks from an elementary school.
