Matthew Williams' answer If they were charged, which is far from a certainty, they could face felony charges for making and distributing child pornography, which would expose them to discretionary transfer to adult court (unlikely but possible) and years in prison. It’s far more likely they would given a probationary sentence in juvenile court particularly if the case is competently handled by an attorney. If there’s any chance they may be charged, they should have lawyers and should not talk to anyone about this...
Joseph Jaap's answer Ohio does not have emancipation for your situation. See this link for more information: https://www.ohiobar.org/public-resources/commonly-asked-law-questions-results/circumstances-say-whether-minors-are-emancipated/
Joseph Jaap's answer At a minimum, the court is likely to suspend his license, fine him, and put him on probation for acting recklessly and irresponsibly -- in hopes of making a significant enough impression that he won't risk his life and teh lives of others when he is eventually allowed to drive again.
Joseph Jaap's answer You will be summoned to go to court, fined, and probably have your license suspended by the judge. You are a new driver with little driving experience. The judge is likely to think that you don't even have enough experience to be driving 55 in a 55, so will think that speeding 20 miles over the limit is irresponsible, and endangers others, and that you do not have enough driving experience to be going so fast, could kill yourself or others, and think that you are not mature enough to handle...
Joseph Jaap's answer You are 18. An adult. He is a minor, below the age of consent of 16. Depending on what you both do, you could be charged with a criminal act and if convicted, possibly go to jail and be required to register as a sex offender for life.
Joseph Jaap's answer If there is no court-ordered parenting agreement from a divorce or custody proceeding, and the child is not special needs, then parental obligations typically cease at age 18. The child could be considered a month-to-month tenant, requiring a proper eviction action. A month to month tenancy can be terminated at the end of any month by giving a written 30 day notice. The form is on the local court web site. If the person does not leave, then a 3 day notice is given, and an eviction action...
Joseph Jaap's answer Probably. The court could determine that you were acting very irresponsibly, and at such a young age, you need more maturity before being allowed to drive again, where you could kill yourself or others. Driving is a privilege, not a right. The court can take it away.
Matthew Williams' answer It really depends on the circumstances, the charges, whether the juvenile is competent, his or her age, etc. A hearing on whether or not to hold the juvenile is required to happen fast, but the adjudicatory hearing may be a long way off.
