Cape Girardeau Teen Charged with Statutory Rape

SEPTEMBER 27, 2006 - Posted at 3:07 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Cape Girardeau teen is charged with rape and sodomy for allegedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl.

Court documents said sex between 17-year-old Tyler Figliolo and the girl was consensual.  It says the girl's mother was aware of it and arranged for birth control.

But police say it's still a crime.  The teen was charged yesterday.

Prosecutors say statutory rape occurs when a victim is younger than 14 years old and the defendant older than 17, regardless of any consent.

The relationship came to light when the girl told friends at school on Monday.  The information was then passed on to authorities.

An investigation is under way to determine if charges should be filed against the girl's mother.
