Teenagers engage in sex. They always have, they always will. Under the law, age can make the difference between a great first experience or becoming a sex felon for life.
Generally, minors cannot give consent to engage in sex. Generally, in my experience, females of the same age as males, are more mature. A nineteen year old boy engaging in sex with a fifteen year old girl can find himself facing prison and becoming a registered sex offender.
A twelve or thirteen year old boy, coming into puberty, may find himself in trouble for touching or saying something improper to a girl at school.
A fifteen year old boy may find himself facing child pornography charges, if a girl at school sends him on his cellphone explicit pictures of her privates. This is called "Sexting"
We live in an age where teenage boys no longer look at Playboy or Hustler Magazine. With a single click of a mouse, or a simple touch of the screen of a cellphone, a young boy can access full fledged porn, even child porn, in seconds. Teenagers sometimes put porn on Dropbox or Google Docs. Sometimes it is not found until years later when they are an adult.
Young boys and young girls, in the process of growing up do things without thinking.
A phone in threat at school, carrying a gun to school, Sexting, or taking it a little to far in "petting" can result in an arrest.
As a parent, you want the best for your child. Good legal representation can make a difference in you child's future. Juveniles have rights, just as adults. Speak with a lawyer before letting your child be interviewed by a detective. Telling the truth and being honest and forthright may land him in juvenile detention or worse yet jail or prison.
If you think your child has a legal issue, do not wait until the police are at your door.
Sexting is common among teenagers
Teens who send inappropriate pictures on their cell phones, or “sexting,” can be charged with a sex crime. If they send pictures by e-mail, they can even be charged with child pornography. Your child could become a registered sex offender for life. This is very serious and you should not wait to obtain an attorney. We Will Represent Your Child With Sensitivity and Compassion In a case involving a juvenile in a sex crime, jail or juvenile detention is not the answer. Rather, Peter Aiken will look for other ways to resolve the case. Often, these involve working with a psychologist to identify the underlying mental issues so that your child can get needed treatment counseling, or medication. Some sex crimes are the result of mental illness. Jail or incarceration is not the best solution. Your child's future is important to Peter Aiken. He will work diligently to resolve your child's case in a positive manner. What we want is rehabilitation, not punishment In Florida, courts favor rehabilitative solutions in juvenile crime cases whenever possible. Peter Aiken has extensive experience working with prosecutors and the courts to obtain alternative sentencing outcomes in all juvenile sex crime cases. These can involve treatment, counseling, probation, community service, home detention, or some combination of alternative solutions. Peter Aiken will use his experience and knowledge to protect your child’s future as well as his or her educational and career options. Avoiding registration as a sex offender is always a top priority.
