Q: Q: What if a 15year old has sexual relations with an 18yearold but both of the parents give consent, is it still illegal

Would it still be illegal because both parents are perfectly ok with it

Max Lavit Rosenberg answered on May 17, 2017

Not only is it still illegal, its also wrong and immoral. Just because you "think" the parents all approve does not make anything right or legal. Parents may be able to give consent to minor's to marry but they cannot give consent to statutory rape. An 18 year old having sex with a 15 year old is... Read more »

It is not his right to know who collected the award. This would be against public policy and prevent good Samaritans from turning in criminals for fear of reprisals. What would your son do with this information? It would be better for him to build a new life and move on.
