Better research statute for your area before you assume he can be charged.

General Definition of Statutory Rape

Generally, when someone of or over the age of consent has sex with someone below the age of consent, it is considered statutory rape.... The age of consent, however, varies from location to location. So, for example, in Austria, as long as the girl is at least 14 years old, you're OK. But in Wisconsin, she would have to be at least 18....

To find out the age of consent where you are, check AgeOfConsent.com, which claims to keep the most up-to-date information on ages of consent around the world.
