    As a conservative, I’m not sure jail time is the answer. So I’ll say no more than 1 night, ( to scare you straight) we’ll wait, that’s not gonna work.

    It is not a matter of opinion it is a matter of law. In the US the vast majority of states set the age of consent at 16 (30) or 17 (8). However many states have near age exceptions. Which means engaging in sex with someone under the age of consent is not illegal as long as the older person is with in a certain number of year of the younger.

    Take Colorado. The age of consent in Colorado is 17; however, there exists in the legislation close-in-age exceptions, which allow those aged 15 and 16 to engage in acts with those less than ten years older and those less than 15 to engage in acts with those less than four years older. Or Connecticut which recognizes that minors who are at least 13 can consent to sexual activity if (and only if) there is less than a 3-year age difference.

    About 1 hour for every MONTH of time you need to serve in a psychiatric facility to address your obsession.

    "willing girlfriend"- statutory rape laws are based on the idea that children can't legally "consent" to anything. If you lured a child into a van with a lollipop, can you say it's not kidnapping because the child "consented"? No, of course not. What we disagree on is the exact age when people can legally consent. And many states have close in age exemptions for a teen who is three years older. So it depends on the state law. But guys have to understand that the fact that a girl seems to be willing to have sex does not mean that she has the mental capacity to legally assent. That's why we let teenage shoplifters off so easily- the part of their brain that makes rational decisions isn't fully developed yet.

    That is up to a judge but perhaps a couple of months so that the 17 year old can learn that statutory rape has nothing to do with the 15 year old's willingness to have sex or the length of their relationship.
