Texas dating law for minors Sexy lady on skype 2013 for sex cam
These types of laws exempt some teenagers and young adults engaging in sexual relations with someone under the age of consent from being classified as sex offenders.
Under Texas' version of the law, if a young adult over the age of 17 has consensual sexual relations with someone under the age of 17, but at least 15 years old, with no more than a four-year age difference between the two, the new law will not require the older party to register as a sex offender if convicted of statutory rape.
In a particularly poignant example, an 18-year-old high school senior was arrested for having sex with his freshman girlfriend at the same high school.
The new law also allows those convicted under the old law to clear their names.
Those who had to register previously as sex offenders for consensual sexual encounters with a person under the age of 17 can ask the court to review their case.
