According to state law 16 is the age of consent for all sexual activity. However, many cities have delinquency laws that refer to sexual conduct with anyone under 18 as contributing to their delinquency. The more common way that people can get into trouble is curfew or alcohol or drugs, and for you that's when you could get in trouble ---- so don't contribute to her delinquency, but otherwise you should be alright.
