  • If a 17-year-old boy, who is a senior in high school, has consensual sex with a 15-year-old girl in high school he can be charged with Rape in the 2nd degree and have to register as a sex offender for ten years. Based on this scenario, research to see if your state allows for a Romeo & Juliet clause when it comes to sexual relationships among the teens.  Provide support for your response
