2qot54rt74o : NO!!!!!

do not waste money on a lawyer

have her visit free legal aid in the local courthouse, and ask what can she do to lessen the sentence

she should also go talk to the state attorneys office and tell them the whole story, starting with the rape to finish with the stealing the pregnancy kit

best wishes

XDedris : Age of consent laws is 16 in Canada. So the adult cannot be charged with any forms or charges similar to statutory rape?
Trying to explain this to my mother in a heated debate. She believes that if her 16 year old daughter (me) has sex with an adult - she can charge them for rape. i disagree. Who's right? -_-

SPbrain : you can only consent to have sex with OTHER minors, not adults - an adult who has sex with a minor CAN be charged with rape

OdellZ905TtQ : You are correct. If you are 16, you may consent to having sex with any adult. The sole exception is that the adult may not be in a position of trust or authority (coach, councillor, police, lawyer, judge, babysitter, etc.) when the age is raised to 18.

You can't be charged with sexual offenses including statutory rape, sexual touching, etc. Pictures and video would still be illegal -- child pornography.

This is clearly explained in the Criminal Code and in the Ministry of Justice web site.

nawHydayassup : Impossible to say - because you will have to pay all of the company's costs so far, and who knows how much their lawyers have been charging.
