Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia

Va. Criminal Code Sec. 18.2-344 Fornication prescribes as follows:

Any person, not being married, who voluntarily shall have sexual intercourse with any other person, shall be guilty of fornication, punishable as a Class 4 misdemeanor.

also be the issue of your aiding and abetting the delinquency of a

I believe, as a Class 1 misdemeanor offense.
