Freshman dating a senior in high school
BY ANAILI MEDINA — High school: a place to meet people? High school students usually span from ages fourteen to eighteen.
Or get into relationships that last, end, or get you in jail?
Freshmen and seniors may have elective classes and/or play sports together. Yet they may not date or have sexual encounters without fear of life changing effects.
To most, it is common knowledge that people who have reached the age of majority should not be romantically involved with minors.
However, does a senior in high school feel like an adult?
Should a senior in high school be wary of getting into relationships with freshmen or sophomore students?
What about the freshmen and sophomore students—should they know about the possible consequences of their actions on others, and about their incapacity to consent?
Should sex education be required, and if so, is that the best place to tell Florida high school students that they may not legally consent to having sexual relationships until the age of sixteen according to Florida Statute 794.05 and 800.04?
When Hunt was initially asked if she thought she had done something wrong, she stated, “Do I think I made a mistake dating someone in high school, that I went to school with and I played basketball with? No, I don’t think I made a mistake.” The arrest affidavit describes some of the sexual encounters by the two girls.
Amongst them were two instances where they met in the bathroom stall at their high school.
