Teens being charged with sexual assault for having consensual sex under the legal age

Some teens are now being charged with sexual assault and statutory rape after having consensual sex with close-in-age partners for being younger than the legal age of consent.

U.S. researchers are now investigating underage teens that are in consensual relationship and engaging in sexual activity that is causing them to be charged with statutory rape, being processed in the court system, and being labeled as sex offenders.

It is clear that some teens engage in sexual activity before the legal consented age and now they may be facing sexual assault charges even though neither partner feels as if they are a victim.

Some officials feel that teenagers have consensual sex with close-in-age partners should be decriminalized in order to save money and time in the court system.
