In Colorado, the law says that it is legal to have sex with a 15 or 16 year old if the person is less than 10 years older than him or her. I am 26, was born in June '86. Would it then be legal for me to have sex with a 16 year old who was born before June '96, or would he or she have to be 17?

Sit down with a criminal defense attorney to make sure you get this answer correct.
That said, why in heaven's name would you be asking such a question, as the young lady is no older than a sophomore or junior in high school. Don't you think you;re playing with fire?
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
