    I am 19 years old thanks for the concern everyone but this is a hypothetical question. I only asked this because in many instances of underage relationships the man claims the girl lied to him. Was just wondering what would happen.

    Also Irman you need to calm down. She was just stating the current situation. Also your suggestions are irrelevant for this issue and your suggestion about the revealing nature of clothes are incredibly inappropriate.
    Of course. I'm calm. OP wanted a serious answer.

    [QUOTE=Irman.g;76581244]There need to be taken different factors in consideration.

    Did the girl tempt him sexually?
    Did the girl have previous sexual history with other partners?
    If so, were the parent aware their daughter was sexually active?
    Did the girl wear "revealing" clothes?
    Did the girl intentionally lie?
    Why did the girl lie?
    Does the girl look underage?
    Etc.

    It's not that simple.

    But, the girl lied. Meaning, the guy asked her about her age.
    So, no serious punishment.[/QUOTE

    Why does the girls clothing matter or whether she ‘tempted’ him sexually? A lot of men find eye contact to be ‘tempting’ when in fact the girl was just scanning the room

    Eye contact cannot be considered tempting, even if the guy thinks that. Tempting has more to do with sexually suggestive behavior.

    A person who is dressed provocatively so as to attract attention from the opposite sex puts themselves at risk of provoking a sexual assault if they attract attention form the wrong kind of person...This is logic. The person who commits the assault is guilty of rape and the victim against whom the assault is committed is also guilty of something. Namely, putting themselves at risk of being assaulted.

    If you cross a street without checking for cars and you get run over by a drunk driver....the driver is at fault for driving drunk and running you over and you are at fault for being careless. You made mistake and he made a mistake. both mistakes are totally different and both should be addressed as both played a part in the crime. You should be held to account for your carelessness/perversion and him/her for his running you over/assaulting you. He is thrown in jail and you? The next time you cross the street you are told to check for cars. The next time you go out you are told to dress decently.

    Is that what your gender studies professor told you?

    Irregardless of what the supposed law student says, there is such a thing as reasonable doubt. Sleeping with someone underage doesn't mean you'll automatically be sentenced with something.
