Customer Question

We are residents of Mississippi. My 17 year old daughter is pregnant by her supervisor who is 25 years older than she. Because she is over 16 (age of consent) is this still statutory rape?

DearCustomer

Thank you for yoru question.

The legal age of consent is 16; therefore, this does not quallify as statutory rape.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, or require clarification of this matter. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT", so I may receive credit for my response. Tips and feedback are also appreciated.

Good Luck!
