Yep.....on TV it used to be called STATUTORY RAPE if you have sex, or if you fondle her etc...or vice versa.....if you keep her beyond curfew...she is a minor under 17 and there are 2 or more years difference in your ages.....

Definately you will have legal problems. More than two years difference in age and she is still a minor. Just hope her parents don't bitch about it and they like you.
