As far as statutory rape goes, you are correct that at 17 inability to consent (due to age) is waived. With the 2 year age gap, there would also be additional safe harbor provisions related to statutory rape in Colorado.
Statutory rape is not the only issue. Parents have been known to...Read more »
Every day I go to work, my boss always slaps my rear, motions like he is going to grab my breasts, rubs up against me, licks his lips like he is licking me in private areas, moans, whistles, and makes sexual comments. It makes me uncomfortable, I have asked him to stop and he keeps laughing and... Read more »

At minimum, this would likely be harassment. Whether other criminal charges are a possibility is based on the facts of the case (i.e. the police and DA would need to review all the specifics). Contact your local police to report a crime.
This is a very fact-specific matter, but the general rule is that Colorado does NOT consider an intoxicated person capable of consenting to sex. This can occur whether or not the accused actively participated/encouraged/facilitated the intoxication of the victim or not.
The only evidence he has is an e-mail he sent to a therapist and a couple visits. Would this be enough to be the police to actively investigate? More importantly, would this be enough for the persecutors to move forward in the case? He's been through a lot (suicide attempt) and to have him be told... Read more »
Only the police and DA can make a determination to proceed with charges/investigate or not. There is not enough information to make a determination. Even if there was enough information, a private attorney cannot force a prosecution/investigation.
Basically my manager is on the clock while he sits outside the store on a swing chair with multiple women. He is a married man and I just find this behavior very creepy and uncomfortable. He spends more time outside the store flirting with these women than actually working.
Sexual harassment is contingent on upon you receiving the harassment. That is, sexual harassment does not generally occur when others are harassed. There are a few common law holdovers that allow emotional distress to related parties (which is also contingent on physical harm to a related party),...Read more »

Civilian victim or rape by a military officer on military property. Defendant killed himself 3 weeks prior to trial so military is dismissing all charges. Can I ask the military to pay for my PTSD treatment and missed work?
You will need to contact an attorney directly to see if there is a possibility. The chances are likely remote. First there is the issue of sovereign immunity and second you would need to show how the base/military assisted or fascinated the crime.
My boyfriend was on a phone plan with his friend, and she and him got in a fight, so he gave her the phone back, in attempt to cut ties with her, and he forgot to log out of his facebook app and email app on the phone. she has now gone on the phone and changed both of those passwords so that he has...

This is actually a civil law issue, rather than criminal. You can only sue a "sugar daddy" for "payment" if you have an enforceable contract. The contract need not necessarily be in writing, but it might be difficult to prove that there was an oral contract like this. The contract also cannot be...Read more »
Yes it is possible to be sued by a private party or face criminal charges. As a general rule, written consent is required. If you are thinking of releasing a private sex tape, I would highly recommend against releasing/posting the video.
