Not necessarily – it depends again in the difference between your ages.The CPS rarely prosecutes underage people of similar age, as long as there is no abuse or exploitation.There are different rules when one of the people involved is in a ‘position of trust’ with the other person.For example, a teacher is breaking the law if they have sex with one of their students, even if they’re over the age of consent (16) but under 18.Even though a pregnancy can be seen as ‘evidence’ that underage sex has taken place – they’ll still be looking more at whether there was abuse or exploitation that led to the pregnancy.The size of the age gap between you here could influence this – the bigger a difference in age you have, the more likely the older person will get into trouble.As the roll of registered sex offenders increases, it seems to be a more frequent phenomenon that one or more persons with sex offender status are involved in chancery court proceedings.Some of the scenarios I have seen include: I posted here about the changing registration requirements that will go into effect this summer. 2006), the COA affirmed modification where the mother had cohabited with and then married a man who had been convicted for four counts of indecency with a 14-year-old child.

The Mississippi Legislature, however, has made an affirmative finding in MCA § 45-33-21, which states, “The Legislature finds that and the protection of the public from these offenders is of paramount concern and interest to the government.” The statement is not dispositive of the issue in and of itself, but it does provide a starting point. If one prongs of the test is removed or missing, the case falls. * * * A child’s resilience and ability to cope with difficult circumstances should not serve to shackle the child to an unhealthy home, especially when a healthier one beckons.” does not mandate that dangerous or illegal behavior be present in order to modify custody, and a chancellor is not required to wait until a child’s safety is in question before removing him or her from an obviously detrimental environment.
In the UK, this is 16 – but you might feel ready earlier or later than that.
This is just one reason why the law is confusing and hard to follow.
