I’m 20 Years old and I’m dating a guy that is 15 Years old, same sex relationship (gay guys). I been with him now for 8 month and of course his mom don’t like it at all. Me and him just recently talked about moving in together. So his mom and I talked and she said if that happen she will go to the police about it, and tell them I been rapping her son. but even if we did have sex (Not saying we have) she would have to have some type of evidence right? and her son would have to say we did for me to get in any Trouble right? Would she have any implicate ( involvement ) just by knowing? I just not to recently got out jail because me and him got into a fight. I really need help with this situation I’m really in love with this guy. It’s only a 5 year difference between us. I really do think he love me.
You are a fool and you are dancing on the edge of spending several decades in prison. Your friend's mother has nothing to do with this. All she, or anybody else, has to do is to call the police and they will take it from there with an investigative capacity that you obviously do not begin to comprehend.
You need to speak with a lawyer ASAP before you get yourself in a whole world of trouble. At least by speaking to an attorney you will have the opportunity to fully explain the details and, at a minimum, you should be able to find out what the consequences are. They could be massive.
Best bet - do not make any move until you know the implications that decision could have.
You should email or privately message an attorney to get a better answer. More details are needed and should be provided in a more appropriate manner rather than on a public posting board.
The age of consent for any sexual contact of any kind in the State of Illinois is 17. Any sexual contact between you and a 15 year old where he touches you or you touch him will put you in the position of being charged with serious crimes where you face many years in a very real prison.
Furthermore, you will be branded as a sex offender where you will have to register as a sex offender with law enforcement whereever you live very possibly for the rest of your life.
Having him move in with you where you say: "Prove we had any sexual contact" is a separate crime of contributing the delinquency of a minor separate and apart from any sex crimes prosecution.
If you love this guy as much as you say you do, you can wait. Please keep in mind that what I wrote above is only Illinois law. The law may be different in different States.
Furthermore, if pictures are taken of him showing nudity and he's under 18, this can easily be considered child pornography where you face prison and registration for those offenses.
You need to end any romantic relationship you may have with this kid (under the law, he's a kid) now.
You also need to see a lawyer to confidentially find out what you might face for any past conduct. If you start a relationship with him after he turns 18, you could still get prosecuted for any sexual contact that occurred where he was under 17 or 18.
Do not post any more about this on a public posting like this. You are in jeopardy of some serious consequences based on your friend's age.
A person becomes an adult at the age of majority, which In most states is 18. Exceptions are Alabama & Nebraska (19), and District of Columbia & Mississippi (21). Until then, the parents pretty much control their life, including whom they date. If the parents wish, they can report "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" if someone interferes with their control. After reaching the age of majority, the new adult can date anyone, leave home against their parent's wishes, live where they want, associate with anybody they wish, pay their own bills and bail themselves out of jail.
Dating a minor UNDER the age of consent -- without sexual contact -- is not illegal as long as the parents or guardians are OK with it. If they are not, the parents or guardians could file police reports that result in charges of "Contributing to the delinquency of a minor" or "Interference with parental control" or something else that might be appropriate in that particular state. Likewise, Dating a minor who is OVER the age of consent -- with or without sexual contact -- is not illegal as long as the parents or guardians are OK with it.
However, if sexual contact is involved, the ages of the couple, the nature of the sexual contact, whether it was consensual or not, when it took place, and the state in which it took place would be important to know. Their particular state may or may not have specific laws that apply to the relationship.
If sexually suggestive photos of a person under 18 are taken and/or shared, federal laws regarding production, distribution, and possession of child pornography come into play. There may also be state laws prohibiting the action.
In general, to be completely legal, adults should not "date" children.
