The age of consent is 16, but dude, come on. He's a 17 year old *child.*
Have you met 17 year olds? They are not smart people. They make dumb choices because they're still impulsive and young. They do not have the emotional maturity and life experience that should inform decisions regarding sex with older people.
You're almost 30. You need to be an adult. You are entirely too old to be ethically having sex with this person. Focus on parenting your children, not on being "in love" with this child.
Hi! I'm not your lawyer until and unless we have a retainer agreement handled. It's not "safe" to share info freely here. You are not protected by attorney-client privilege when you're asking public questions like this. DON'T make any admissions.
The age of consent in Iowa is 16; therefore, he is old enough to engage in consensual sex. That said, he is still a minor, so if you get crosswise with the parents, this could turn out poorly for you. There would also be the related issue of child pornography risks.
DO NOT message me asking follow ups to your question! That's what the forum "comment" feature is for. I am not your attorney here, and I cannot give you legal advice here. To become your attorney, I need to understand the facts and circumstances of your legal situation and meet you face to face.
