Laws regarding minors dating adults
OK so I live in Michigan and I have a boyfriend at the age of 18 and I am 16.My parents are doing everything they can to keep us apart because the feel that he is too old.Just to cover all the bases: 750.520e Criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree; misdemeanor. So, as far as Michigan is concerned, with the age of consent being 16 and your boyfriend being less than 5 years older than you, legally he cannot be punished for your relationship.HOWEVER, until you reach the age of majority, 18, your parents CAN dictate with whom you spend your time. This means that even if you are the one who initiates contact, charges can be filed against him for breaking the restraining order. NOW GO TO BED (I am a mom after all, it was required that I say that!I have read the rules in Michigan and can find nothing in the statutes that requires the permission of the minor.
All of which is irrelevant to the fact that the rules of the site request that you not post to dead threads unless you are the original poster coming back with an update.Sex laws vary from one place or jurisdiction to another, and have varied over time, and unlawful sexual acts are also called sex crimes.Some laws regulating sexual activity are intended to protect one or all participants, while others are intended to proscribe behavior that has been defined as a crime.He and his family are worried that if my parents call the police that he can be charged for sexual assualt and/or what not and have to register as a sex offender.So what I would like to know is if our relationship is illegall by any circumstance??? (1) A person is guilty of criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree if he or she engages in sexual contact with another person and if any of the following circumstances exist: (a) That other person is at least 13 years of age but less than 16 years of age, and the actor is 5 or more years older than that other person.
