I slept with a girl who lied about her age on a dating app. She claimed to be 18. She was actually 16 at the time and I was 27. I have evidence of her on the dating site still lying about her age. I also have screen shots of provocative photos she has posted on the website.
Statutory rape is a strict liability crime, meaning that in most cases it does not matter if the defendant believed, although mistakenly, that the victim was over the consent age. Some states allow this defense. See a NY criminal defense attorney for a confidential consultation.
