sorry but they do charge 18 year old boys with these types of crimes EVERYDAY.Ihave two friends who got in trouble,1being 18 witha15 year old and the other wasa19 year old witha16 year old. If the parents want to press charges they can. Being gay really doesn’t matter in this case. They treat young kids as sex offenders for sexting( sending naked text messages), its absurd. Even though the parents are using this asaform of anti gay punishment, the law is looking at it fromadifferent perspective. She is pretty much screwed, best bet is to take the plea bargan. If she doesn’t have to register asasex offender then the house arrest is notabad deal.
