    I believe the legal age of consent in Ohio is 16-years-old. Therefore, if he, as an 18-year-old, is sexually active with a 15-year-old girl, he may be violating the law.

    16 is the age of consent in the state of Ohio, but there are many factors that play into it. The law states that there must be an age separation of more than 4 years, to the day, for it to be a crime. And once someone is over the age of 16, the worst that can happen from completely consensual sex is a Misdemeanor in the First degree of Corruption of a Minor, which is punishable by up to 180 days in the county jail and up to a 1000 dollar fine.

    So to answer the first post, although some time has passed, as long as she turns 14 before he turns 18 they would be alright, although if her parents really were against it she could get in trouble for whatever reason her parents want to conjure up

    "SOME" time has passed? The minor in this question is now 18, thus a legal adult.

    Please don't post to 4 year old threads.
