My 21 year old autistic son had consensual sex with a girl

Resolved Question:

My 21 year old autistic son had consensual sex with a girl who he didn't realise was 14. As soon as he found out he stopped speaking to her. This was reported to child protection services by his aunt. Should he go and discuss this with the police or wait for it to be investigated ?

Hi - when was this and how long was this going on - also who is the 14 year old?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It happened once last week, once he found out her age he hasn't contacted her again. The girl was a friend of one of his friends

Will she complain to the police?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I don't think so, but I'm not sure
Expert:  Jo C. replied 6 months ago.

There is no sense in approaching the police then.

There is no allegation at the moment. Until there is there is no point in walking into a police station and holding your hands in the air.

Wait for them to approach you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
