He's about to graduate and enter national guard, They've not had sex yet,but I know n have know people when I was that age that they got in trouble. All it takes is one time to make her mad n complain to parents. Can they still call this statutory rape?
In Ohio, the age of consent is 16, so any consensual sexual conduct is not a criminal offense. The concern here is whether or not her parents/guardians approve of the relationship. If the two continue to be involved against the parents' wishes, it is possible that they can pursue charges of Contributing to the Delinquency or Unruliness of a Minor.

She is old enough to consent according to the law. But, if her parents disapprove of the relationship, and she is unruly or even delinquent because of it, he could be hit with a contributing charge. I've also seen parents take out protection orders for their kids and then hit the guy with a offense for violating the order.

Your son should be careful. 16 is the age of consent in Ohio however that doesn't mean that he could face charges if he does something including dating. If the girls parents do not approve they could have him charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
