    statutory rape and children

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? GA

    Is a person that has been charged with statutory rape allowed to be around younger children?

    Only charged, not convicted? They can be around anyone they want, unless maybe CPS has told them not to be.

    He was convicted and is on a sex offender site. It states that he was charged with statutory rape.

    He can still be around anyone he wants unless there is a stipulation in his sentence that he can't be.

    Of course, if one of the child's parents makes an issue of a sex offender being around their children, that can change in a heartbeat and the man could be denied access to those children.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    Frankly speaking, a person is foolish to risk the welfare of their children, by entrusting them to a person convicted of statutory rape.

    Depends on how long ago the 'offense' happened. Until recently, GA would charge teenagers with statutory.

    In some states, a statutory rape or equivalent conviction could mean that an 18 year old had consentual sex with his 17 year old girlfriend. It doesn't always mean a danger to young children.
    Two things I am tired of typing: 1.) A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means that you were fired for a reason prohibited by law. 2.) The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding contract or CBA expressly says otherwise. If it does, the terms of the contract apply.

    And merely being "around" a child is not the same as being "entrusted" with a child.
