im worried about the whole "dating a minor" thing, so id like to know what the arizona law has to say about it. spooner2007 I was watching the news this morning about the inmates in tent city complaining on how cold it was these last two days because there are no heaters in those tents. Besides, Why would a freshman in college want to be tied down to a sophomore in high school? if youre smart, and you dont want a prison record, youll wait till your gf becomes a legal adult before you see her.
On the other side, if one of my boys (thinking of my 20 year old here) started dating someone under the legal age, I would slap him upside his head and ask him what the heck he thinks he is doing, and tell him to find someone his own age.
Please do a little research before giving incorrect information.
If he was forty and you were ten it would be legal (but that is horrible Im not condoning that! If you two do have sex he will be done for statory rape and im sure you dont want that for boyfriend so just dont be tempted and you two will be fine :) It is not illegal to date. Here, if one of the people is 18 or older and the other is at least 4 years younger, it is illegal to have sex.
If anyone finds out, the older person could be charged with rape - not be careful :) It is not illegal to go out regularly with someone, which is what dating is, regardless of the age difference.
It may or may not be legal for an 18 year old to date a 16 year old.
If the 18 year old has a criminal record, or is a sex offender, or is a teacher or coach or in another position of trust or authority, it will not be legal for the 18 year old to date the 16 year old.
Of course it has to be proven by medical tests that they have engaged in sex.
That can be proven easily by a medical vaginal exam.
It is also illegal for the 18 year old to bring the 16 year old to an R-rated or NC-17 movie.
It is also illegal for the 18 year old to show any pornography to the 16 year old, or to pose the 16 year old for any sort of sexual or provocative photos.
Also, it is not legal for the 18 year old to have sex with the 16 year old.
