Dear Essex Police, I ask the following question under the freedom of information act 2000 and for the protection of children and freedom of adults under the Human Rights Act 1998.
As stated, a reasonable person would reasonably expect it to be 16 considering the demonstrative evidence of many 16 year olds pregnant, with a family, in there own rented homes with a partner aged 18 that have been married by the state for decades.
Yet as we know, a 16 year old cant by a pornographic magazine that depicts the acts she/he probably engages in every night with there lawfully wedded partner.
So if a citizen was to do the common sense thing and follow this logic and it is not concurred with the greater wisdom of the law that law could land a reasonable person (such as a 19 year old) on the register and in jail.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
However, the federal government passed laws in 20 that increase the circumstances in which certain sexual activity, especially with anyone under 18, is a federal crime.
