Rules for 17 year old dating write personality profile dating site
But it may not be the kind of “dating” you’re picturing.
But because the law states that partners must be members of the opposite sex, Limon was given a 17-year sentence. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, introduced a bill in 2019 to add same-sex relationships to the state's Romeo and Juliet law.
The law seeks only to bring equality to gay and lesbian offenders and still would bring sex-offender status for adults to have sex with underage teens of the same sex or for a teen to have sex with anyone of the same sex under 14.
The Romeo and Juliet laws are frequently enforced unfairly says Mark Chaffin, a researcher with the University of Oklahoma-based National Center on the Sexual Behavior of Youth.
"In many cases, they are enforced largely by how angry the parents of the younger party are." One well-publicized case demonstrating the need for Romeo and Juliet legislation is that of Genarlow Wilson, a 17-year-old who was imprisoned for having consensual oral sex with a 15-year-old female.
An athlete and honor student, Wilson was videotaped at a New Year’s Eve celebration engaging in oral sex and was sentenced to 10 years for aggravated child molestation.
