Customer Question

I am a guy living in Boise, Idaho who just turned 21 and am dating a 17 year old girl at the moment. She will be 18 in 4 months and we plan on moving in together. Her dad has threatened to call the police on me for dating his daughter even though We have not and will not engage in any sexual activities until she is legal and we are married. Would I get into any trouble if he did decide to call the police?

Good afternoon:

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question. As a reminder, all information provided here is for general purposes only and does not constitute advice.

You mentioned that no sexual activity has occurred. However, there may be criminal offenses, generally, even with sexual communications that do not lead to physical sexual conduct.

For instance, exchanging nude pictures or propositioning a minor generally is a criminal offense. Has any such conduct occurred?

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

While sexual intercourse with a 17 year old if you are 3 yrs older or more is rape, but if you have not had sexual relations then no law has been broken and the police would not do anything if contacted.
