No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
The age difference is concerning. Even though a 16 year old can consent to be in a relationship, there are many ways that the adult can find him or herself in legal trouble. Depending on the nature of texts and/or photographs that might be in your possession or her possession, you could be charged with other types of sex offenses, i.e. child exploitation. Also, if you are or were in a position of trust with the person (assistant coach, teacher, etc.) you could be in violation of the law. You should find a relationship with someone 18 years or older and you will avoid many potential legal pitfalls.
