Re: Sex with a Minor
If the matter was consensual, it is a misdemeanor in GA (16-6-3). No one is going to prison, and no one is going to be clapped in irons.
My guess is that if the boys are admitting to sex, they are claiming that it was consensual. It is likely that they are unable to support an allegation of rape due to intoxication so they are left with the statutory offense which is a misdemeanor. the fact that they have not simply filed on the misdemeanor tells me that they are still open to the possibility of rape, but they have not obtained enough evidence to make that case stick as yet.
