Legal Question

Asked on: 5/14/12, 9:43 am

Is it illegal for a man over the age of 24 to kiss, touch, and receive manual sex from a 17 year old? It appears as though, as long as there is no penetration, it is legal, given the definition of sexual activity:

"'sexual activity' means oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another. . ." I know there is a law about lustful touching, but it didn't seem to apply to someone who is 17.

I would really like to know. Thanks in advance.
