A 20-year-old boyfriend has sex with his 17-year-old girlfriend. When her parents find out, they are livid and go to the police. It happens all across the country, every day and it can ruin the lives of those charged with statutory rape. If convicted of statutory rape, you must register as a sex offender and undergo psychological evaluations.
If you are facing statutory rape charges, the most important thing you can do is steadfastly exercise your right to remain silent. Talking to the police in this situation will do nothing to benefit you and can only hurt your chances of avoiding charges of having your charges dismissed or avoiding the charges from being brought in the first place.
A conviction for a sex crime can ruin your life. If you are convicted, you face a stiff jail sentence as well as being forced to register as a sex offender. This can make you an outcast in your neighborhood and place your livelihood at risk. In fact, you could even be forced to sell your lifelong home if a school is later built near your home.
