My daughter is a lesbian and the person she met stated on myspace that she was 18 years old. She drove to several time and later found out she was 15 years old. It didn't matter if the girl lied about her age, my daughter was 20 years old.
She swears that she didn't know she was a minor The girl grandmother notify the local police and she had to go court in North Carolina. The girls grandmother decide to drop the charges but it was too late. The police was involved and it was a criminal charge.
She was charged and convicted under North Carolina 14-177 Crime Against nature. She had the option to serve 3 years on probation or 6 months in jail. Since she lived in Virginia, she opt to serve 6 months in jail and move to Ohio.
