Statute of limitations has long run out after this passage of time. There is no legal prohibition to the creation of such a statement, if the... Read more »

Thanks for your post. IMO, the police are not likely to be very excited that your bf got his collection of nudes erased, unless he is a dealer in fine art. Being a self confessed meth injector kinda points the other way. And go over there "with clean lady parts"?? What does that mean?... Read more »

Sexual assault is both a crime and a civil wrong. The district attorney decides whether to pursue a criminal action or not, you get to him by reporting the crime to the police in a timely manner, so they can gather evidence.

For a civil wrong, you are entitled to recover damages, the same...

The mere fact that the police were not waiting for the alleged assaulter this morning is really meaningless. This co-worker should take this very seriously. He should find... Read more »

Q: Can a 15 year old male from the US date an 18 year old from Norway?

Would sexual relations be considered illegal, what about just dating? (Sexual relations assuming we met up at any point in either country)

William John Light
William John Light answered on Dec 24, 2019

Yes, it's illegal in the United States. In California, it's considered statutory rape. If you traveled outside of California for the purpose of engaging in sexual relations that would be illegal in California, that is also illegal.
