Sex with a Minor in Columbus

If the age difference between the two individuals is less than 4 years, the offense will could be charged as a misdemeanor. If the accused is more than 10 years older than the alleged victim, they can be charged with a third degree felony. A prior criminal history involving sex crimes can lead to second degree felony charges.
