Austin Statutory Rape Lawyer

Consensual sex with someone under 17 will almost always be called statutory rape. The police won’t care if everyone agreed, if you had been dating for a long time, or even if the parents were aware of the relationship. In fact, it doesn’t even matter if you knew the exact age of the other person. If she lied to you about her age, and it was reasonable to believe her, it will still be called rape.
