do you think there needs to be some changes made??? such as an 18 yr old whos a sex offender because his girlfriend is 17 or the teens who get caught with the sexting??? i think its a little over the top because they arn't "real" or "dangerous" sex offenders.Answer Question

I think the laws need to be more flexible not so black and white. In NY the age of consent is 17, there was a case a while ago in the paper where a 16 y.o got pregnant by her 18 y.o boyfriend and went to social services for medical. BY LAW social services had to let some dept. of law enforcement know and he was arrested and charged with statutory rape. Here's the kicker they lived with HER parents and shared a bedroom with HER parents permission! So now there is proof (the baby) that he committed a sexual offense and he will have to be a registered sex offender. It scares me as the mother of a teen boy also because my friends and I used to lie about ourÂ age all the time, I tell my son if he is thinking about messing around with a girl he better know for sure either check her ID or ask her parents how old she is.
As for the "sexting" I think soonÂ how that is dealt with will have to change, as it is nowÂ tee
