Age of consent in many states is 16. Go back a hundred years and the laws were even younger.
This is not about being an “adult”, since a 16 year old may legally consent to sex. 18 is adult you say, but they may not drink alcohol. They die as Soldiers for us though.
Yes, I understand that, but I have also understood that the younger girl was not at the age of consent at the time the incident occurred.
Also, the law does not always makes sense, and in many cases it makes no sense, but that does not mean it won’t snag you.
In this case, if this older girl was molesting my minor daughter, I’d press charges against her too.
