What if the 15 year old girl is merely upset about the breakup and just wants to hurt her 19 year old ex-boyfriend? He says sex didn't happen, she says it did. She says it happened once. He says it never happened at all. there is no dna they broke up because he found out she lied about her age. Can this 19 year old boy be prosecuted? and convicted on he say/she say?
Criminal Defense Attorney
Theoretically it could happen. I've seen juries do stranger things. It will depend on how precise and detailed she can be about the alleged encounters and how believeable she comes across. It would help if he had an alibi or if he could demonstrate bias on her part. But if there is no physical evidence, to me that's good enough for reasonable doubt or at least you can make a good case for it. But he needs to get a good, experienced criminal defense attorney fast. Best of everything.
