Default Question about underage girls

If you met a female at a bar (21 & over to get in), hooked up with her later and had sex, then take her home. Her mom finds out about you and decides to press charges against you for having sex with her underage daughter. Can you beat the case?

Idk, but if it was a 21 & up bar, than you could probably get away with saying that you thought she was of age because she couldn't have gotten into the bar otherwise. If you were under the immpression that she was 21^ than you probably won't get arrested.

I would assume if she is pressing charges she would lie and say that she told u her real age. In which case it becomes yoru word against hers.

pleading ignorance is not a defense.

this is a statutory rape. you don't need mens rea for there to be in violation of the crime. if you do it, you are guilty.

How much do you know about law? Yes, technically, it is statutory rape, however did this act take place under false impressions? Was the OP told by the subject that she was overage? Keep in mind, she was inside a 21 & over only bar. These will be key elements if and when this goes to court.

Yeah, a case can be made that she lied to him by not disclosing her true age. If she says she did say her true age, and he says she didn't, he has the leverage because she's in the bar, meaning she had to lie to get in, which proves her intent and dishonesty. She could have had a fake ID which helps his case in the matter.



On semi-related matter:

I'm so sick of seeing guys get harsh sentences of rape, even though the girl was underage and the sex was consentual, while women who have consentual sex with underage boys are not portrayed as rapists and don't get as harsh of a sentence. Double standard to the max, and I'm tired of it.

IMO, a 16 or 17 year old girl who has consentual sex with an 18 year old boy is not a big deal compared to a 32 year old teacher with a 15 year old boy. They say justice is blind, but I guess not since it depends on who has the rod.

yes, i guess that would happen. but still, i think most courts would rule in favor of defendant.

if that happens and you're caught you are pretty much screwed. It's your word against hers and in that case your word won't count for **** no matter how innocent you are.

Unless the so called "victim" can prove without a reasonable doubt that the defendant knew of her age upfront, there's no way he's going to jail.

In light of all this talk about the boy in GA and his case, do you think any judge would be moronic enough to sentence someone without concrete proof? Get real.
