I'm 22 years old and live in georgia. If I have sex with a 17 year old, could I get in trouble?

As the legal age for consent in Georgia is 16, you could not be charged with a sexual offense in Georgia so long as the contact was consensual. However, this does not mean that it is a good idea to have such a relationship with a person who is still a minor, as his/her parents could cause you trouble for contributing to the delinquency of a minor (if you furnish them alcohol or cause them to spurn their parent's authority) or possibly even interference with custody.
