      the girl is under the age of 16.. he is 16, he of age to sex she is not. but I do disagree with them charging him. The issue is parents on tortola allow their children to dress how they want, and when they find out they having sexual intercourse its a big shock.. stop pressing charges on the school boy them for your force ripe girl child.

      It says she is under 16. The legal age of consent is 16. So even if she is 15 it is illegal. The boy is not under age, he is the legal age for consent.

    It’s really bot a big deal. These 16 year olds & younger having sex from long. Is only when they get catch they call it rape or something. No where here it says he raped her so obviously she was okay with having sex with him. I could be wrong. Free the boy
