  • Parents cannot "waive" any provisions of a law. A crime is a crime is a crime, even WITH "parental consent." +5
  • I don't think written consent to have illegal sex with a minor constitutes permission in the eyes of the law. It would simply mean they were complicit in the molestation of their daughter.
  • Hell, in NY is is illegal for two 16 year olds to have sex with each other (unless they are married). But it is only a misdemeanor. That doesn't change until one party is 21, then it becomes a felony. So, a 16yo boy can be charged if he has sex with an older 16yo girl. But she can be charged as well. So, 18yo with a 16yo is a misdemeanor for both of them. 17 is safe. 15 is a whole 'nother ballgame. Having a note from your mom doesn't make any difference. Parents only come into play because they are usually the ones who whine to the cops.
  • Technically, it is still a Class A misdemeanor regardless. However, it is unlikely that there would be any prosecution in your case unless somebody *really* wanted to press the issue. The laws were written to protect minors from predators, not to prosecute teenage lovers, and most courts acknowledge that when they interpret the laws passed by the legislature.
