Age of consent is 12 in Mexico; will Raniere get back to man-girl sex? January 8, In Mexico, federal law establishes the age of 12 as the minimum age of consent. The Mexican age of consent is one of the lowest in the world. In some cases, state laws can override federal law. In practice, the decision to prosecute is left to state authorities. At the state level, the minimum ages of consent varies between 12 and puberty in a few states and In Nuevo Leon, the age of consent is This means Keith Raniere can have sex with consenting year-olds — and, frankly, quite probably year-olds also — provided she and her family have no objections.
Keith must ensure that all his Mexican lovers are at least 12 years old to be safe from prosecution. If the offender uses moral or physical violence, an extra half term is added to the initial sentence. In other words, a man who has sex with a six year old might go to prison for two years.
But if he forces her, he might go for three years. Article states that: A further penalty might accrue if Keith uses his usual deceit to seduce the teen or pre-teen girl. Although actual prosecutions for violations of Corruption of Minors statutes and age of consent statutes in general tend to be rare.
In Mexico, prosecutors usually only prosecute consensual sexual activity involving adults and underage minors upon complaint by the minor, or a custodial complaint. According to Article , there is a punishment of an extra two thirds of the term clause V when the victim is inside a private vehicle or a public service vehicle and clause VI when the crime is committed in a desert or isolated place.
The penalty is 6 months to 4 years of prison. This crime needs a complaint to be prosecuted. Perhaps Keith will select only those girls whose parents offer them to him and sign a confidentiality agreement with proper collateral.
In short, by law, in Mexico, an adult can have sex with a girl or boy as young as 12 but the child must understand what he or she is doing. No trickery or force can be used to induce the consent. Few appear to be prosecuted in Mexico, according to published reports.
Therefore, it is not unlikely that Keith Raniere will be able to do in Mexico without fear or reprisals what he had to do clandestinely in New York State where the age of consent is Keith Raniere with the late Pamela Cafritz. She used to procure teens and preteens for him to have sex with using deceit and trickery. Now that she is gone, Keith has gone down to Mexico where the age of consent is While it is widely assumed that Raniere fled the USA to try to escape federal prosecution, is it possible that he also went for sex tourism, denied to him in New York State now that his pimp woman is dead?
Of course it could be a mere killing of two birds with one stone that brings Raniere down to Mexicio: A chance to let others take the fall in New York while he enjoys raping little girls with impunity. A number of his followers in Mexico have girls between the ages of 12 and 16, which is ripe for perv Raniere to be sure.
