Someone facing years of prison (and unpleasant years at that) and a lifetime of being an outcast from society probably should get the best lawyer they can find and not "hope for the best." The lawyer will probably advise that "she wanted it" is never a good defense, nor is admitting guilt on the internet.

A 13 year old cannot consent. A 13 year old cannot consent. See website for info on retaining the right attorney: http://www.lawrencelewispc.com/pages.php?go=pinfo&PID=38

A 13 year old cannot legally consent. You face up to 20 years in prison, and then a lifetime of being unemployable as you will be a registered sex offender. You need the best lawyer you can find.
