Can a 16 year old sexually touch a 18 year old ?
2 attorney answers
In Louisiana, a person 17 or older can consent to have sex with any person who is 17 years old or older.
A minor between the ages of 13 and 15 can consent to have sex with someone who is up to 3 years older than them. However, a minor between the ages of 15 and 17 may consent to sex only if the other person is 2 years older or less.
Get out a calendar and check exactly how much older you are. If you are even one day over the limit, you lose the exception, and if she "touches" you, you can be arrested.

If she touches you sexually, you have criminal exposure. Wait until she's 17, both get guardasil shots and use birth control so you don't give each other cancer or an unwanted pregnancy which will screw up your education.
