Its it against the law, or can there be any charges placed on an individual whom is going out with someone the age of 15 and they're 17?

Thus girl wants to go out with me and she's really beautiful but I'm 17 and she's 15 can there be any charges placed against me if e do "things" or like if her parents don't approve of me?

The legal age of consent varies depending on what state you live in.
But the lowest ;egal age of consent anywhere in the US is 16.
In some staes it's as high as 18.
You can go to www.ageofconsent.us to check the laws in your state.
15 is illegal.
Everywhere.

Give it one more year and her parents can have you arrested if they don't approve I think it's like statutory rape or somethin

It's not illegal if you don't have sex until you're both 18. If you're 18 when she's 16 and you go out, you can be jailed, I think. But for now, you should be okay.

I say leave her alone. If you are in California the parents have the right to have you arrested as soon as you turn 18. If she was under 14 the state could have you arrested. Its not worth the drama. Just be friends.

It depends on what state you live in. Some states consider 16 to be the age of consent. If you live in one of those states you could be charged. You need to look up the laws for the age of consent in your state.

First off don't be doing "things" with a 15 year old. Second off there is a charge for that and if you do anything with her I hope you get caught.

Well don't get me wrong sex isn't my intention, but there's always possibilities and you can never pass up the reason of doubt. I was just curious ; that's why I thought I'd ask the question.

Going out with some one is ok no matter what age and its not statutory rape. Read question again. If you plan on having sexy well once u hit 18 then u could go out with her however sex becomes against the law. It sounds stupid and makesno sense

You're fine now, but once you turn 18 you can date her, but you can't have sex with her unless you want to get charged with statutory rape.

Check your states laws on age of consent! Some say 14 is old enough if the partner is under 17! If it is 16 or older you could be looking at jail time. Do you think that "If they are old enough to go to the store they are old enough to get bred!" Why in the h@ll would want to do stuff with at 15 year old? Wait a year, then date people your own age!

You misunderstand me, I don't plan on doing anything with her I haven't even gave an answer that's why I'm looking for help. My intentions aren't sex and I think its sad that people think so low of another. No disrespect but you don't even know me and therefore you should never judge a book by its cover. I was just curious like if I kissed her or even held her hand.

You're the one with the open ended statement of "we do things"! I'm giving you the facts of the situation! It is up to you, the risk is yours not mine! I just seen it all too often, starts out as friends and then escalates!

Well, I said IF we do things, you can never pass up the reason of doubt. Expect the unexpected type of thing.

As long as you don't see her naked, touch her anywhere you wouldn't touch your mother or park your train in her station, you'll be fine just dating.

Lol your funny thanks for the advise there's people whom are judging me and like scolding me for no reason. I really appreciate that you didn't judge like the rest and just gave a simple answer.

Dating is not against the law .. Having sex with a minor is against the law. One doesn't necessarily mean the other is involved.
