He has a Juris Doctor from the University of Kansas.My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Illinois I'm 15 and I'm dating a 24 year old. Well atleast you get to move out and date people over 18. I've heard rumors that you are legaly an adult at 17 now. Until then, dating is fine, any kind of penetration is illegal for your guy (although only a misdemeanor for the older person if consenual). A 15 yr old isn't capable of handling a relationship of this nature at that age. he sneaks a kiss at Hollister behind the low-rise jean rack. Depending on the state, he could be arrested for PULLING HER BEHIND THE RACK for a kiss. She could climb into his room in the middle of the night, rip off her clothes and BEG him to ride her like a poorly built carnival ride...

Men have different things on their mind at age 20 than innocent girls believe. This is an internet predator asking questions so that he can convince children that his intentions are legal.... my 14 year old is going to date a man with his own car and apartment. There is no reason for an adult to find anything remotely romantically attractive in a 14 year old child. (and for the OP about to respond, no, it doesn't matter that she is REALLY mature for her age).
he thinks that if he states this in an authoritative way that he will sound intelligent and sophisticated to the child... This is an internet predator asking questions so that he can convince children that his intentions are legal....
