I was in a relationship with an underage girl when i was 18,

i was in a relationship with an underage girl when i was 18, we had been together for 3 years and we were caught by her father during intercourse. he called the cops and they got involved and was told my case would be sent to the District Attorney or someone to see if they were going to press charges. At the event, i was told not to contact them until the police told me that it was ok to do so. i never heard anything from the authorities and the father contacted me often in spite of my requests not to until the authorities said we could. i ended up moving away from the city and later i went abroad for a while. i have been back in the states for nearly a year and still haven't heard anything from the authorities and i was just wondering if at this point it would be incriminating or in any way ill advised to contact the girl who i havent spoken with in about 3 years at this point, for closure reasons.

One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship

One of my nephew, he is 22 yrs old. He has a relationship with a girl who told our entire family that she was 21 yrs old, and both of her parents are deceased. Just about few months ago, our family finds out that his girl friend is a run away teenager and she is actually 17 yrs old from her birth mother. His girl friend is a drug user and an alcoholic. She needs money for buying drugs, so she has been blackmail him "If you don't give me money, I will turn you in as sex offender who has sex with minor." My nephew would like to turn himself in to the court, so my questions are:1. How does he turn himself in?2. What kinds of penalties will he face?The family believes that he does the right things by turning himself in , and admits that it was a mistake for believing her. He did not know of her lie. The family cares about her and urges her to go rehab to get clean, but she only wants money to buy drugs and alcohol. It is better to face the judge than dealing with her black mail. Please help.

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?

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk at a party. He was the one who brought the alcohol to several minors. He raped her while she was passed out/asleep. We are prosecuting and have done everything including a rape kit but was done 60 hours after the rape when we found out. The exam showed abrasions to her labia and blood on her cervix. She woke up to this happening and pushed him off and left so we are doubting any semen. SO we have a he said she's said he is saying it was consensual. He has a record, He has been arrested 9 times, 5 of them for giving alcohol to minors. Our daughter is in counseling and is having good and bad days. We are supporting her and believe her 100%. My fear is he will go free. Do we need an attorney or do we wait for the prosecutors? And what if he gets off on lack of evidence and he sues us can/does that happen?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Ohio and May 22JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No only policeJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No that is the story in a nut shell.JA: OK.

Hi, I was 22 years old when I met a girl's mom at the workplace, she introduce her daughter to me, and we began our relationship including sex. I have asked her and her parents, and I know she was 17. During the relationship, I spend a lot of time and all my money to her and her family. With a surprise, one day a detective called me to go to police station immediately for investigation of statuary rape. I was shocked and told him I don't know what he taking about and I need a lawyer to go with me, he told me I have to go there immediately or he will issue an arrest on me. So I went there, in a room with recorder, he told me the girl I have been dating was 16 years old, and her mom complain to him, during the talking, he finally got me admitted to sex with 16 years old. I went to court and got sentenced coz based on solely my incrimination statement. Now I am done with my sentence, and the girl I was dating went to my work place told me that her mom plan this out so she can sue me for money. I am very angry now coz her mom used her daughter to trick me into trouble. and I want to file a motion 440 to vacate this case. but how I can prove to court I wasn't aware she was 16 and the statement I made in police station was not volunteer?
