14 YEAR OLD BOY AND 14 YEAR OLD GIRL

Florida

IF A 14YR OLD BOY AND A 14YR OLD GIRL HAVE SEX WHAT IS THE CRIME AND CONSEQUENCE FOR THEM?

In Miami Florida, a sex act between two minors would likely fall to the jurisdiction of the Miami Dade Juvenile Services Department (JSD) and there may be a full assessment of both minors to identify unique needs and issues of both youth. JSD is partnered with representatives from law enforcement, social services, education and mental health.

Criminal prosecution would not be likely for either juvenile unless there is a history of behavior traits that would establish cause for more serious action by the juvenile justice system.

As far as the crime and the consequence, the matter would have to be assessed on an individual basis with the minors and their parents or guardians. The consequences can depend on any number of factors.

Florida Law states that NOONE can consent to ANY sex act if they are under the age of 16. If two people who are both under the age of 16 engage in sexual relations, they are both guilty of lewd or lascivious battery and both can be criminally charged. Most of the time neither is but it is up to the State Attorney's office in that jurisdiction.
