    Exclamation Re: Age of Consent in Florida

    i have a question--it wont let me post a new thread--I'm 17 and my boyfriend is 19. ((both of our birthdays are in september)) is it illegal for us to engage in "sexual activities"?-i've read that it's illegal for a person over 24 to engage in sexual activities with anyone unler the age of 17 but what about statutory rape? can my parents file charges for statutory rape?

    794.05 Unlawful sexual activity with certain minors.--

    (1) A person 24 years of age or older who engages in sexual activity with a person 16 or 17 years of age commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. As used in this section, "sexual activity" means oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another; however, sexual activity does not include an act done for a bona fide medical purpose.

    (2) The provisions of this section do not apply to a person 16 or 17 years of age who has had the disabilities of nonage removed under chapter 743.

    (3) The victim's prior sexual conduct is not a relevant issue in a prosecution under this section.

    (4) If an offense under this section directly results in the victim giving birth to a child, paternity of that child shall be established as described in chapter 742. If it is determined that the offender is the father of the child, the offender must pay child support pursuant to the child support guidelines described in chapter 61.

    she CAN get in trouble....but not for having sex wit him. if he runs away and she has him with her they can charge her. or even him being at her house without his parents permision the parents can say he ran away and she can be charged with "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" i understand it
