It's statutory rape. The age of consent is 16.
You can go to the police if you want. I would try to speak to the boy and his parents about the legality of this. If you do go to the police the 17 year old boy could be charged and if he is convicted he will be labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life, which will essential impede him forever.
Please think carefully about what you want to do about this.
Hi, First, yes, you can try to get it brought forward early to have your case terminated. Second, You can get it sealed BUT it may be difficult as it is so soon. It's a different process than sealing a conviction or a CWOF. The Judge can deny the sealing and you may have to go back. Third, your conviction shouldn't show up for most CORI checks, but it may still show up as "open" because it is still technically open.
He can sell his car for whatever he wants...to bail him out you go to the jail he is at and post it. I suggest calling first to find out when the best time to go is so you won't have to wait and the procedure.
Unfortunately, you are out of luck. You could try to convince the local police to take out a complaint. That being said, if there were civil damages you could consider filing a Civil Complaint. Filing a civil complaint can be very expensive and time consuming and it might be best to just leave it alone and move on.
You can be charged with this, but it will be difficult to convict you if they don't have evidence proving that it is you. You should hire a lawyer and figure out the best defense. There are many possible options, such as a Motion to Dismiss (if they don't have anything), or possibly a remand to a clerk's hearing. You might even need to take it all the way to trial.
I cover your area.
Attorney Gordon is correct. The courts are also even SLOWER now since they are so underfunded, so it is likely that you will get the hearing notice later rather then sooner. Also, you must be notified if they are considering a complaint against you, you will have a right to appear and be heard (or exercise your right to remain silent).
