Sandusky police are investigating an alleged sex offense involving a 15-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl.

The incidents occurred at the children’s Huron Avenue home, where they both live with their parents who are dating, Sandusky police Detective Ken Nixon said. During interviews, the girl said the alleged acts never occurred.

The boy has yet to be interviewed, as he remains in the Erie County Detention Home on unrelated charges, Nixon said. Investigators plan to meet with the boy at a later date to conduct a formal interview.

According to Ohio law, anyone who engages in sexual intercourse with someone under the age of 13 can be charged with rape.

If the girl is saying nothing happened why is anything being investigated to begin with? Who initiated this case? Something seems a little odd here.

If someone else reported it. If she is 12, no matter if she "consented" it is still rape.

Kids have sex with each other, it happens, and always has.

She's 12. Shouldn't be having sex. I know it happens though. Maybe schools should straight up inform all students of that law.
Also, if she went to a private doctor For women's health, it's their obligation (if not the law, not sure in the private sector) to report it. If it was a public health clinic, they are mandated reporters and have to report a sexually active client under the age of 13 by law. It may not state why the investigation was initiated because of hippa laws IF this was the case.

Informed

All doctors in Ohio are mandated reporters of child abuse.

He's 15 and should not be having sex either but it happens. Parents need to be the informative ones. Sex is not TABOO. Teach your kids right from wrong and about self respect. Don't depend on the schools or anyone else to do it for you.

You actually expect Godless liberals, who pedal moral relativism and are deserving of punishment for their own sins, to be able to teach right from wrong? Good luck with that…
