In most cases, none. Statutory rape is when the younger person is under the age of conscious decision. In some staes, this is 13 and over, the individual can make conscious decisions. * It depends upon the AOC for the state in which the relationship has occurred. An 18-year-old is considered an adult a 16-year-old a minor but felony charges such as statutory rape are usually not applicable. In cases where charges are filed they are generally that of sexual misconduct or misdemeanor offenses. However, the adult should keep in mind that all states reserve the right to charge and prosecute any adult who violates existing laws that pertain to adult and minor relationships without the cooperation of the minor or the minor's parents or legal guardian.
