16 dating a 18 year old
In both examples (a) and (b) the older person could be charged.
For 16–17 year olds, another person 16 or older can have sex with you if you both agree to it, but sex with a person in a position of care or authority over a 16 or 17 year old is a serious criminal offence in which the carer/supervisor can be charged.
this is not going well at all with wanting to see my boyfriend. If they say no contact, that's exactly what it means - no contact. They can legally keep you grounded until you are 18.Often they protect against prosecution, but the authorities may still insist the adult ceases contact with the minor.However, if an adult begins a relationship with a minor after turning 18, it can be illegal, and that adult may face prosecution.If you feel unsure about someone’s age, it is always good to check.When the law is broken, the police and courts may get involved.
