My son had been seeing this girl for a while and her mom didn't like him so when he turned 18 she went and filed charges on my son. There is a 3 yr 10 month difference in age. This girl's family has money and pushed the DA to peruse this issue. I have had to hire attorney and am losing everything. My son received 10yr probation and now is a registered sex offender. There was a no contact order in place and this girl contacted my son and claimed to cut herself if he didn't meet with her so he did and now is in jail for 120 days. He had to spend holidays in jail and has been placed in PC. This is my problem.....It was a consensual act both times and her daughter is getting off free and clear. My son is required to register for 15yr which means he can never be a soldier like he wanted and feels his life is over. So is it fair that my son has a whole life of consequences and her daughter gets nothing? Can anyone explain how this is right and how to help my son move forward with his life?At this time I have paid $3000 for attorney and pay $95 monthly in fines and probation fees.
