    Question: im 15. boyfriend is 22. can he get charged with sexual misconduct if we havent had sex or done anything sexual. my mother is charging him with sexual assault. what can i do?

    Answer: Tell the truth in court - review the consequences of perjury by looking at lawforkids.org Question #331

    If he is innocent, he and/or his attorney will need to show that.

    It is against the law for a 22 year old to have sex with 15 year old minor - see Question #404

     She said she HASN'T had sex with him, so they're not doing anything Illegal. In some states 16 year olds can be with people up to a 24-year limit.

    You can pled out the case or decide you dont want to press charges or go and testify against your mother and the case cant go on with no witnesses or victims unless they dig int history or proior offense. the judge may pepena the case or dismiss it if she fimds it a waste of time.
