    Answered . From the question, I'm not sure if you've been charged or if you are curious about a code section.. Hypothetically, children can commit sex abuse of other children. It is not necessary that you be over the age of 18 or that he/she be under 14. If this is a question based on charges you've been charged with, pleasepleaseplease talk to an attorney asap.

    Answered . The simple answer to your question is - yes. One child can abuse another and it can be as simple as touching them outside their clothing. As others have advised, if you are facing criminal charges, wait to discuss this matter with your attorney. If your family can't afford to hire one, there will be a very experienced Public Defender appointed to will help you and answer all your questions.
    Good Luck.
