Default Can an 18 year old get charged as a sex offender if he had sex with a 16 year old.

Im 16, and got pregnant by my 18 year old boyfriend. My mom forced me to get an abortion she dropped the charges like she didnt sign the papers for the cops to go get my boyfriend. Anyways after having the abortion can my mom still press charges?

Texas

§ 22. 011


Sexual assault for anyone to intentionally or knowingly penetrate a person under age 17, other than his spouse. The actor has an affirmative defense if he is not more than three years older than the victim, who is at least age 14


Two to 20 years in prison



Keep in mind there are other charges besides rape that can apply and are felonys with required registration as sex offender. How old were you when you got pregnant?

i was 16 , and he was and still is 18, and my mom didnt charge him with it like she only called the cops to see if she can do it. And they said yes that all she had to do was sign a paper and they will go get my boyfriend and put him in jail. But after i got the abortion cause she forced me to or else she would push me down the stairs. Can she still press charges even though we got an abortion?
