No. Furthermore the relationship is between an adult and a minor, all states have laws pertaining to such a situation. The adult male could find himself in serious legal difficulty, both criminal and civil. It would be in his best interest to refrain from discussing the issue with anyone until he has obtained legal advice as to the applicable laws of the state. Most attorneys offer free or minimal fee consultations.


There are several US States where the age of consent is 16. Check with the state where you live.
