Nick Olivas became a father at 14, a fact he wouldn't learn for eight years.
While in high school, Olivas had sex with a 20-year-old woman. As he sees it now, she took advantage of a lonely kid going through a rough patch at home.
State law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent with an adult under any circumstance, making Olivas a rape victim. But Olivas didn't press charges and says he didn't realize at the time that it was even something to consider.
The two went their separate ways. Olivas, now 24 and living in Phoenix, graduated from high school, went to college and became a medical assistant.
Then two years ago, the state served him with papers demanding child support. That's how he found out he had a then-6-year-old daughter.

There is no statute of limitations on rape in the state (I'm not sure if that's the same everywhere but hope so).
That sort of brings up another series of questions. Is she a legit predator? 14 and 20 isn't that scary. Is that what's best for the child? Not having a mother after she's spent her entire life with her and moving in with a stranger?
If the guy was 18 the woman would be 24. We wouldn't really bat an eye at that. Still, the laws the law.
