If a girl lies about her age and sleeps with an older man at a club/bar should he get in trouble for statutory rape or should she be charged with entrapment? (Obviously genders CAN be reversed be this is more common.)



A scenrio: In this case he'she (the older) has every right to assume the person is above 19. The minor is at a club/bar. Which means they fooled the bouncers with their fake ID. Since they fooled the bouncers, they can surely fool the attendants. Their ID claims they are 21 but they are actually 17. Eventually their mom/dad finds out and wants to press charges against the person they slept with (Who thought they were 21). Should the person they slept with be charged?

Yes, and if the mi or was somewhere they needed to lie about age to get in like a club/bar then the parents should also be charged

It wouldn't be entrapment, but the underage person shouldn't get off Scott free. Although, this depends on how old the minor actually is as to what happens from there.

Do you think the person (Who believed they were of legal age because of their id) who slept with them should be charged?

I'm sorry but it depends on the case and the situation.

If a 30 year old man is banging a 15 year old girl (and vice versa) then he deserves what he gets.  And frankly I think a lot of the time its a cop out.  They knew they just didn't give a damn.

To some extent. I wouldn't say they should be charged with statutory rape or anything unless the minor was obviously underage and the older person was just going along with the lie because he/she was a perv.

In this case, as with many, he has every reason to believe she was 18+. She was in a club/bar.

If they can fool the bouncers with their fake ID, they can fool the attentands with their fake ID. So let's say this person has a fake ID, provides themselves as being 21 but they're actually 17 and sleeps with a 30 year old man. Their mom/dad finds out and wants to press charges. Should the man go to jail?

Who checks a person's id before they sleep with them?  If there's any question the deed shouldn't be done.


ETA I voted that the minor is responsible.

In that case, I'd lean toward not then, IF the bar checks every ID (while I know IDs can be faked, if the bar checks, that's at least attempting to keep out underage kids). If it's a bar known to let in underage teens, then I would be suspicious of the older person.
