My name is Cody and I am originally from New Mexico. I am a 21 yr old talking to an underage girl who is 17. Because of religious beliefs we are not involved in sexual activities. The mother has known about us talking for maybe 2 months.
But after being persuaded by other members of our church, she has told me not to even speak or be around her daughter.
I know the legal age of conscent is 16 here, so if she can have sex at 16, can't she talk to whoever she wants?
So can I still get in trouble for talking to her if she calls me?
*The mother lost custody of the kids for a year because of abuse.
*The mother only had custody for a week when this incident happened
*The father has no custody because he too has abused the 17 yr old, but
to a further extent.
*The 17 yr old is now back in state custody
