Oregon and other States have laws that punish adults for having sexual communications with minors. Look at ORS 163.432 and 163.433, and 163.684-163.689, for example. Prosecutors are very aggressive in pursuing adults who engage in sexual relationships with minors, even if the relationship is entirely online.See question

My 20 year old brother is dating a 16 year old girl and her parents are okay with them being together, and they insist that, in Oregon, it's okay for my brother to date said girl despite the age difference if her parents are okay with the relation...
Parents cannot "consent" to their child being sexually assaulted, so the answer to your question is NO. Your brother is at risk of destroying his life over this. He is facing being convicted of a felony, doing jail time, being classified as a sex offender, and being stigmatized for the rest of his days. It is not worth it. There are innumerable ways this situation could get the attention of law enforcement. They might break up and the girl or her family might decide they don't like your brother any more. The girl might get pregnant. One of the thousands of Mandatory Reporters in Oregon might hear of the situation and report your brother to the authorities. This is a very dangerous situation.See question

My 17-year old son has been dating a 14 year old girl and I am wondering if he can get in trouble for that or me for that matter. I am pretty sure they are having sex, but when I try to talk to them about birth control they just shoo me away. Al...
This is a very dangerous situation. You say your son is 17 and the girl is 14. It is very important to find out the girl's exact date of birth, because if they are more than 3 years apart, to the day, your son may have no valid legal defense to a charge of Statutory Rape. It sounds like they are on friendly terms now, but what about a year from now when they break up, or she ends up pregnant, or one of them divulges the illegal conduct to a Mandatory Reporter (of whom there are thousands in the State of Oregon), and the matter gets to the attention of Law Enforcement? This is time to have a very serious talk with your son. His conduct could have damaging consequences for the REST OF HIS LIFE. Consult a criminal defense attorney in private. Don't post anything else about this online.See question
