I have a question about molestation. What can happen to someone

This answer was rated:

I have a question about molestation. What can happen to someone how is 13 years old and is charged with molesting a 7 year old. That happened about 7 years ago? So the 13 year old is now 21 and the 7 year old is now 14 years old? I would like to know what the lay would do in that instant. If the 13 year old is guilty?

Due to the fact that you were a minor at the time of the molestation then you should be subject to the juvenile sentencing possibilities instead of those of an adult. However obviously if sentenced to jail you would serve the juvenile time in an adult prison. Does this answer your question.
