Helping Good People At Their Worst Times

I just discovered that my son and his 15 year old girlfriend had sex. Can he be charged with a crime?

Yes, even if your son is 15 years of age as well. In Florida, the legal age of consent is 16. Hence, even if two children who are both under the age of 16 have sex, they could both be charged with Lewd and Lascivious conduct and subsequently be labeled a sex offender. It doesn’t matter if the sex was consensual or not. If your child is facing these charges, they may follow him/her for the rest of their lives. Hire an attorney who will invest the time to find the best solution.
