Statutory Rape


Is it statutory rape if one is 17 years old and the other is 13 years old?

Yes. Ultimately it would be up to a family court judge to determine whether the 17 year old would be charged as an adult or a juvenile; but either way this is considered a violation of the Indiana state laws.
