This 17 year old NEEDS an experienced local lawyer who specializes in criminal law.Ask a similar question
First, it is not against the law to date, but it is against the law to engage in any sexual activity with a person under 16 years old regardless of the age of the other person. The law for 16-24 would not apply in your situation because one party is only 14 years old. A person under 24 can have sexual relations with some older than 16. For example, it would not be illegal for a 22 y.o. to have relations with a 17 y.o.
As to the other question regarding the 17 y.o. and no prosecution, the answer is no. The State can file on a person as an adult if they feel the charges are not appropriate for a juvenile disposition.Ask a similar question
