Legal Question in Sexual Harassment in North Carolina

I'm gay and 36, I had sexual intercourse with a boy who was 14 years old, he told me he was 16 through Grindr and it was obvious he wanted sex...

I truly believed he was 16, not 14, this happened in north carolina.

I assume the question is...did you commit a crime? Yes. Statutory rape...sex with a person under the age of consent is a strict liability claim...this means it is not a defense that you thought the person was of age...if they are under age, a crime has been committed. Stop posting confessions.
