  1. Because of the charges and your age it would be wise to hire an attorney or wait until you have been appointed an attorney to discuss your case and questions. This is a serious matter that could mark you for life. Find an attorney, stop all contact with the girl and seek counseling.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.


  4. Stop admitting possible guilt on public forums such as avvo and consult with a locally experienced attorney ASAP in the event you are contacted by law enforcement.
