My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Colorado
Situation: 15 year old female dating/sexually active with 18 year old male. She confided to him that she "thinks" she was molested by her older brother (now 21) when she was very young. Parents don't know and would "flip" if she suggested it. Brother lives at home, as does she. She wants counseling about this, but doesn't want parents to know why. She has been known to "cut" or otherwise hurt herself. Parents know this but have not gotten help for her. They do not believe in counseling.
1) Can the 18-yr old be charged (by her angry parents, e.g.) with statutory rape?
2) Can she receive counseling from private counselor without parent's consent?
3) If parents must sign consent for counseling, will they have the right to know what is discussed in counseling office?
4) Would she be removed from the home, since her brother still lives there?
5) If she brought this issue up in counseling, would counselor have to report brother?
6) Does her past as a cutter and present as one who sometimes hurts herself (pinching self or otherwise non-deadly behaviors) require someone in authority (such as a counselor) to deem her a threat to self or others?
7) Under what conditions would she be considered "emancipated" before she is 18?
Thanks for your help.
