15 yr old and 20 yr old having sex

:: March 10, 2008 23:59

Is it legal for a 20 year old to have sex with a 15 year old. What if it's just oral sex, is that ok? We've known each other for 5 years and her parents seem ok with me dating her. I've taken her out several times with their permission. When we are on a date, we might make out in the car and it's getting to where we really want to take it to the next level, but I don't want to get arrested. I love her and we want to get married when she is a little older. Thanks.

No. It would not be legal for a 20 year old to engage in sexual intercourse or oral sex with a 15 year old. In the state of Nebraska, this would be a violation of section 28-805 of the Nebraska Criminal code.
