Florida law on dating Men chats nude
No laws in the State of Florida require consenting parties to reach a certain age in order to date.
However, a number of state laws prohibit sexual activity with minors.
Statutory rape laws are premised on the assumption that minors are incapable of giving informed consent to sexual activities.
Their incapacity is written into the statute—hence the term “statutory” rape.
Statutory rape occurs when a person over the age of consent engages in sexual intercourse with someone under the statutory age of consent, also known as a minor.
In most states, the age of consent has been arbitrarily designated by statute.
As a general rule, an adult cannot engage in sexual acts with a minor, even if they are dating.
Nearly a quarter of the people removed from the database committed their crimes in Pinellas and Pasco counties, the study found, the highest concentration in the state. "I can't tell you why that number is like that," said Beverly Andringa, the Pinellas-Pasco prosecutor who reviews the requests.
Assaults of a sexual nature may also be charged under the state’s assault and battery or child molestation or enticement laws (to learn more, see Aggravated Assault Laws in Florida and Child Enticement in Florida).
