My aunt recently told my parents I was dating a 21 year old and they said they were going to press charges for statutory rape. Can that happen if it was consensual? And if not are there still any consequences? (And they can't prove he touched me.)
Under your scenario, you have not described statutory rape. There could be possible issues with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Legal age in Alabama is 19.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
