Committed Lawyers Defending People In Johnson County And Surrounding Areas
People are often surprised to learn that many sex crime charges actually involve consensual sexual activity, typically involving teenagers. Even more surprising, even shocking, is the fact that a teenager having consensual sex with someone within a year or two in age, could face criminal charges, the consequences of which could have an extremely destructive impact on the teen's future. These cases can be complex because of the role that age plays. For example, a case involving an 18-year-old in a consensual sexual relationship with a 16-year-old may be different than a case involving a 19-year-old in a relationship with a 16-year-old.
