Except that a 14-year-old CAN NOT legally give consent to partaking in sexual activities under Florida law. I may disagree with issues relating to age of consent in Florida, but the fact remains that Kaitlyn DID break the law so there is legal justification for pressing charges. The younger girl also participated in a “controlled phone call” for the police in which she and Kaitlyn discussed their sexual past. Clearly, the younger girl was willing to work with the police on this fact and there was a sexual relationship between the two.
Not exactly. The age of consent is 16. 14 & 15 year olds can have sex with people up to 5 years older than them. Their relationship in Canada would have been legal for that reason. For the record, it doesn’t matter the age a relationship started. It is simply the ages when the act in question occurred that matter legally (although probably not morally).
