Even if it is legal its wrong, but I just wanted to know. The Criminal Code does not now criminalize consensual sexual activity with or between persons 14 or over, unless it takes place in a relationship of trust or dependency, in which case sexual activity with persons over 14 but under 18 can constitute an offence, notwithstanding their consent. I live in Ontario, and I believe this is one truly ****ed up disgusting law.
I have a duaghter and its good to know these things. Even consensual activity with those under 14 but over 12 may not be an offence if the accused is under 16 and less than two years older than the complainant. Even though it says there can be no more than two years age difference between partners ... I don't even know how this even managed to get in our Criminal Code! its illegal to take out a person under the age of 16 with out her parents consent...
This is not an open door for all of the creeps to pray on young girls.
I don't even know how this even managed to get in our Criminal Code! Presumption re age (3) Evidence that the person referred to in paragraph (1)(a), (b) or (c) was represented to the accused as being under the age of eighteen years, sixteen years or fourteen years, as the case may be, is, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, proof that the accused believed that the person was under that age. Definition of "guardian" (2) In this section and sections 281 to 283, "guardian" includes any person who has in law or in fact the custody or control of another person. some of those laws (of which that say 14 and up can date) it doesn't mean that it's ok to do so.
No defence (4) It is not a defence to a charge under paragraph (1)(a), (b) or (c) that the accused believed that the person referred to in that paragraph was at least eighteen years of age, sixteen years or fourteen years of age, as the case may be, unless the accused took reasonable steps to ascertain the age of the person.2002, c. The parents or legal gaurdians have the final say and could legally charge the person trying to date their teenager.
The Conservatives said they raised the age, in part, to deal with internet predators.
The 2008 change to the Criminal Code provided "close in age" or "peer group" exceptions.
So it's never alright to go off and date one..if you are..you're pretty desperate if you can't find a person within the limits of your own age. but My nephew is marrying a woman 20 years older than himself...
