Re: accused of having sex with a minor
It is not relevant that the minor has been sexually active previously with others. It is not relevant that both say the sex was consensual.
Under the brief facts you have given, I am almost 100% sure that a criminal charge is going to be filed and that a warrant will be issued for family memberís arrest. He will then be arrested.
At this time, he needs to hire a lawyer. Family member should never have made any statements to the police. It is too late to fix that, but he needs to stop talking to the police and refer them to his attorney in the future.
