Hello. In Minnesota, age 16 is generally the age of consent but there are a multitude of caveats and exceptions to the general rules. Especially if you are the 22 year old engaging in this conduct, please seek private attorney advice, because the stakes are high if you are doing something wrong, and because this website provides general information only and it is not legal advice for your needs. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best. Tricia Dwyer, Esq., phone 612-296-9666 seven day until 8 p.m. daily. CRIMINAL LAW
