As well, 16 and 17 year olds cannot consent to sexual activity that involves prostitution or pornography.If you take the birthdays in consideration, they are less then 3 years apart, so is there anything protecting that relationship?The age of consent, also known as the "age of protection", refers to the age at which a young person can legally consent to sexual activity.The and there is no relationship of trust, authority or dependency or any other exploitation of the young person.This means that if the partner is 5 years or older than the 14 or 15 year old, any sexual activity will be considered a criminal offence unless it occurs after they are married to each other (in accordance with the "solemnization" of marriage requirements that are established in each province and territory, governing how and when a marriage can be performed, including the minimum age at which someone may marry).
All sexual activity without consent, regardless of age, is a criminal offence.
The age of consent laws apply to all forms of sexual activity, ranging from sexual touching (e.g., kissing) to sexual intercourse.
The 15 yr old male is in the foster system with DFCS in Cherokee County, Ga. The young lady is 18, but started dating him at the age of 17. They had sexual intercourse when she was 17 and he was 15.
I am curious to what the laws in Georgia say about the stipulations on an 18 yr old dating a 15 year old.
However, the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity "exploits" the young person -- when it involves prostitution, pornography or occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency (e.g., with a teacher, coach or babysitter).
Sexual activity can also be considered exploitative based on the nature and circumstances of the relationship, e.g., the young person's age, the age difference between the young person and their partner, how the relationship developed (quickly, secretly, or over the Internet) and how the partner may have controlled or influenced the young person.
