Yes, you can be charged with statutory rape if you have sexual intercourse with her.
You should be more than concerned. You should be terrified. The act would be aggravated child molestation and you can be charged as a ADULT, meaning you would face a mandatory minimum 25 years in prison.
She's a child. Leave her alone.
As the others have stated, it is statutory rape and child molestation and probably a few other crimes. Once you are both 16 the sex is legal, but there are still other criminal violations you can be looking at until the age of 18. Keep it in your pants or get ready to suffer life-long consequences.
Absolutely you can be charged with statutory rape among other crimes. DO NOT RISK YOUR FUTURE for this.
As my colleagues have suggested, you are far too young for sexual activity, and you risk criminal charges, sex offender registration, and a lifelong label as a "child molester." Please listen to this advice.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
You both can be charged with statutory rape, child molestation, and many other crimes.
