no, its only illegal if your committing a sexual act. he or she shouldn't get arrested for kissing or hugging OR let alone "dating" somebody that's under 18 but if its sex then yeah. i don't know about other states but i do know its not illegal in California.

AnswerThe age of sexual consent differs depending upon the state in which you live. In relationships between an adult and a minor where there is such a large discrepancy in ages; it is very possible the adult male could face numerous criminal charges including statutory rape which is a class "A" felony and punishable by imprisonment in every state.
