Love is love, but laws are laws and sketchy is sketchy.

When it comes to statutory rape, sometimes there’s a shade of gray that makes things complicated, but we’re going to try to keep it real. If you’re underage you can’t consent to having sex. It’s not necessarily the violent rape you’re probably thinking of, but it’s still a form of rape.

Wait, so if I’m under the age of consent then what happens if I have consensual sex with someone else who is also under the age of consent?

Well, in some states then technically both of you have broken the law.

Limits governing sexual contact between two minors vary from allowing two to four years' difference.

Some states, including Michigan and Georgia, set a definite age of consent.

5, 2015: Samuel Benda, now 21, was charged in 2011 with possession of child pornography for having a nude photo of his 17-year-old high school girlfriend on his cellphone, taken on the night of their prom.

Benda pleaded guilty to the charge in November 2012. The charge was dismissed in July 2014 after he successfully completed two years of probation.

The photo is a reflection of her and Benda, his hands covering her body. The girl later told a Dakota County judge that she had forgotten about the picture until police came to her house and asked about it. Benda was convicted of felony child-pornography possession and is awaiting sentencing. He was a trusted family friend who had been like part of the family since she was 14. For years, her parents said they later found out, the older man had been flattering the teen.The age of consent -- the age at which a person can legally give consent to a sexual partner -- varies from 14 to 18. for an adult -- 18 or older -- to have sexual contact with someone younger than 16.All states which place the age of consent younger than 16 years of age have provisions that differentiate between an adult sexual partner and a minor sexual partner. Some states consider the age difference between a teen and her sexual partner, both in determining whether a law has been broken and in determining how severe the charges should be.

Such a legal arrangement is called a stay of adjudication.
