    They have 175 days from the date of your arrest to make a formal decision. If they make a formal decision within that time they can hold your bond until your case is resolved. If your cases is resolved with any kind of plea, the court costs and any applicable fines will be deducted from your cash bond and the remainder returned to you.

    You can DATE, you cannot, under any circumstances, no matter what you think, have any SEXUAL contact in any way. This includes touching her breasts, vagina, or buttocks OR allowing her to touch your genitalia or buttock. Once she is 16, then it would be legal to engage in sexual activity, although I would advise you against doing such.
