When I was 15 I ranaway with my 19 year...When I was 15 I ranaway with my 19 year old boyfriend because my parents were emotionally abbusive and I have depression. Then I was not being treated. we ran away crossing state lines when my parents said they were never going to let him speak to me again and we're going to throw him in prison forsatutory rape. Now I am 17 almost 18 in 3 months and he just. Turned 21. Is there anything I can do legally to have these charges dropped? My parents are pushing it and keep saying its up to the state, but they just want him to be punished. I live in the state of Texas and he is currently being charged with Kidnapping since we left texas and went to Tennessee. We started dating when he was 18 and I was 15.

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?

I met a women on a dating site.....I asked her before I saw

I met a women on a dating site.....I asked her before I saw her on the phone if she would stay the night with me at my hotel room. She said yes she would. We both agreed we wouldn't have sex. When I picked her up she had her overnight bag. And after dinner we went to my hotel room. She had a little pj bottoms and a tee shirt on, I had a tee shirt on. Well I turned my back and she put her hand on my shoulder and tapped it I turned around and we started kissing and getting arroused, anyway I asked her to take her panties off and her shirt which she did immediately. She opened her legs and we had sex......later that night I was holding her and kissed her on the cheek and she put her hand on he back of my neck and we kissed and had sex again. All completely 100% unforcedThe next day I went home and texted her once or twice and she then called me saying that she didn't feel comfortable with things and that she filed rape charges but at the present time not filing charges. She said she kept her panties. The police I guess told her to try to work it out and see if things worked out and if she wanted to press charges. Over the past two days I have been communicating with her (in a very nice way) and said I would continue to see her. She also keeps asking for money for things.....in addition the night of her supposedly filing a report, she sends me a very provocative photo of her in a bra.Can you offer advice on what to do about this I know I made a mistake seeing this women but I know it was not forced sex at all.
