    You are incorrect. 16 is the legal age of consent in NC. 15 and under you are out of luck. Even two kids 14/15 yrs old could be charged, not with Statutory Rape, but certain charges do exist for those cases. Although they are rarely pursued. So a 16 yr old with a 15 yr old would qualify as statutory rape as well.

    Not true. The law in NC says a 13+ year old can consent, but only if the partner is within 4 years of their age. So this guy was a few months too old. Refer to NC 14-27.7A

    jimmytowtimes...well, perhaps the key word is not the age difference, but he had sex with her. I am sure that your god-fearing parents did not have sex during the 18-14 time. AND if they did, they were not caught. Super that they have raised 5 children and many grandchildren during the 42 years of marriage. God bless all of you

    What a ridiculous law. My dad and mom were 18 and 14 when they met. I guess if he was few months older than he should of had to do prison time instead of raising a happy family of 5 with her and celebrating their 42nd wedding anniversary this year.
