(NEWSER) – Nick Olivas got the shock of his life two years ago when he was hit with a child support demand from the state of Arizona—for a child he fathered when he was 14 years old. In that state, a child under the age of 15 can't consent to sex, making Olivas, now 24, a statutory rape victim of the woman who gave birth to his daughter.
Olivas believes that the woman—who was 20 at the time of their sexual encounter—took advantage of him and that he shouldn't be held responsible for his actions because he was a child, reports the Arizona Republic. He didn't press charges, because he says he didn't know that was an option at the time. (Nor did he know about the baby.)
