Once the conditions are satisfied, a judge will clear the defendant of the charges and dismiss the case.
Benda pleaded guilty to the charge in November 2012. The charge was dismissed in July 2014 after he successfully completed two years of probation.
My question involves criminal law for the state of: TX I am 14, turning 15 in a few days, and I'm wanting to date a guy who is 17, turning 18 in a little over 3 months. He only goes to prison for years instead of decades.
When I turn 15 he will still be 17 and I know the law will not apply then but when he turns 18 in June can he be charged with anything if we have sex??? The romeo exception takes statutory rape off the table, but there are still a host of other charges.
Benda didn’t question his 17-year-old girlfriend when she took a naked picture of herself in the mirror on his cellphone. “I didn’t think.” Now, her former boyfriend is facing serious consequences.
The photo is a reflection of her and Benda, his hands covering her body. The girl later told a Dakota County judge that she had forgotten about the picture until police came to her house and asked about it. Benda was convicted of felony child-pornography possession and is awaiting sentencing.

The guy I like is 18 and just graduated from our high school.
*unless, of course, you think that nothing proves your love by sending him to prison.
If you really, really, really care for this guy..how much you care about him by staying away from him.
