I have a boyfriend that just graduated but my parents don't want us dating. I turn 16 next year and he'll be 20 but my step dad threatened to call the cops if we continued talking. When I turn 16 and I'm dating my boyfriend, without sexual contact...
16 is legal age of consent but you are still a minor and your parents have the right to decide who can come around you. They can ask for and get a restraining order against him, which will go on his record. They can tell him to not come to the house and if he does, can call the cops and have him arrested and charged with trespassing. If you decide to sneak out and go out with him, your parents can call the cops to come find you all (or be waiting for him at his house) and arrest him. So, if you and he are willing to risk his being arrested and having an arrest record or a restraining order against him, then for it. Otherwise, I strongly suggest that you have a conversation with your parents and see if there are some reasonable arrangements for you to date him. If they say no, then you'll have to decide if your "love" can wait for you until you're 18.
Your parents are looking out for your future which you can't see. If they truly do not like him, it might not hurt to listen. The boyfriend I had at 16 actually discouraged me from going to college because he thought I'd find someone else better than him. And then he dumped me just before the senior prom. I went to college and found someone better. and then to law school. If this guy really "loves" you, he will respect your parents' wishes. Remember, Romeo and Juliet did not end well.
Just two normal people, no authority over one another is present, and knowing that sexting and explicit video showing can't happen till the younger party is 18. Is there anything legally wrong with dating and being romantically involved?
To be clear: 16 is the age of consent for sex, generally speaking, as Mr. Urbanic mentioned. However, sexting, and explicit pictures or video or snap chats, etc, prior to 18, is considered child porn and transmitting it illegal.See question
I got an UFI charge, I have a pretty clean record besides that charge. What does a charge like that carry.
Your question is confusing. You first ask about an "app/acc j&s" which should stand for a Judgement and Sentence on a Application to Accelerate. Means you were on a deferred, violated the deferred, then got accelerated to a conviction, which is why there is a Judgement and Sentence filed.
Then you ask what the range of punishment on a "UFI" charge is. Not sure what you mean by a "UFI". And if it's the only charge on your record, - the one you have the J&S for, you would have been informed in court.See question
I got pulled over about a month and a half ago and forgot about my court date. I knew I had one and thought it was another date. But when I looked to double check I now realized I missed the court date. What should I do. I've never had to deal wit...
You won't necessarily need a lawyer, but you will need to come up with a lot of money to resolve the warrant and the ticket, and possibly, an additional FTA ticket. Call the court clerk and ask how much it will cost. If you are needing time pay, then you'll need to ask how much you need to pay to at least get the warrant recalled and reset the court date.
Also, be aware, you license may be suspended (or may already be suspended) because of your failure to appear.
Disorderly conduct is the charge. Long story short, my friend got into a fight, i was standing right next to him and the police decided to arrest me as well even though i was not involved. I have the police record which confirms this, i was not e...
You'll need a letter from the DA's office and the municipal counselor's office stating that they have no intention to prosecute. If your brave enough, you can make a request yourself. Or you can hire an expungement attorney to make that call you. Either way, just be aware that you may cause them to take a closer look at the event to see if you could be charged. (Although, based on your account, it's very likely they will agree there is nothing to charge.)See question
Was stuck in a ditch when cop pulled up, keep in mind I could have gotten charged for the following: 1 tag belonging to another vehicle, 2 no insurance 3 DUI, 4 DUS at the least. Spent friday, Saturday, Sunday in jail -and wasn't even actually c...
You were arrested and booked in. Officer submits his report to the DA's office, who is supposed to file either charges or at least probable cause paperwork to continue to hold you. It's against the law to hold you beyond a certain time period without at least probable cause paperwork being reviewed by a judge and filed. So, since that wasn't done in time, the judge ordered you to be released. However, this does not prevent the DA from filing charges at a later time so long as the statute of limitations has not yet run. For a DUI, that's 3 years.
Hire an attorney for your criminal case.
Since your more than 15 days out from the arrest, your license will have an additional revocation period added to it. To drive legally, you'll need to request a modified license through DPS. If your license was suspended for no insurance and you have no valid tag for the vehicle, you need to stop driving illegally until you can get that fixed and then a modified license. Needless to say, this will take a lot of money. But continuing to take chances of being arrested for DUS charges will only dig your hole deeper.
I got in trouble in Oklahoma I have 4 more months of probation I got a transfer to Illinois i want to move back to oklahoma will they let me
If your probation is supervised by the Department of Corrections and was transferred to Illinois, you'll have to request another transfer. With only 4 months left to go, it might not be enough time to complete the transfer. It's more about the red tape than about whether or not probation gives permission. You should be asking your probation officer. Relocating and hoping they approve after-the-fact is not a good idea.See question

Check with your probation officer if there is anything more you need to do for probation. If they say "nothing" ask for something in writing saying that your requirements are completed. Otherwise, do the extra 10 and have them ready to show.See question
My 17 yr old daughter( I was passenger) was given a ticket for speeding as she entered Kiowa OK. The officer said he got her doing 72 in a 60. While we were waiting we discussed what happened. Trying to use this as a learning experience. I said go...
Take pictures of speed limit sign and print any maps that will prove that the limit was actually 60 and take to court with you. When you go to court, ask if there is an opportunity to speak with the prosecutor to negotiate ticket. See if they will amend it to 12 over. If they will not, take it to trial.See question
I just received a summons to appear in court for an incident reported by my 17 year old son's school for an alleged assault and battery onot a student. The court date scheduled is for 6/6/17. This presents a problem because I'm relocating to TX on...
You will need to appear. The court doesn't care if you have to drive back because you lived here when it occurred. Jurisdiction is here in OK. If that particular date is difficult for you because it's so close to your move, then talk to your lawyer about getting that reset. The first day is very basic. there are forms for you to fill out as the parent.
You don't mention if the son still lives with you, and thus will be moving to TX with you, or lives with another. Or if the other parent is around. If the child is moving to TX with you, then that will affect his probation, if he's adjudicated guilty.
