Alabama consent law question. Anyone wanna help?

Both my ex-girlfriend and I are under 16. She is four months older than me. Now, if we both do something 'sexually deviant' is it punishable by law? Is it punishable during the four month streatch when she is sixteen and I am fifteen? Also, am I right to say it is completely fine after my birthday?

I would really like to know. We have people watching us and I need to know.

Update:

I already knew the age of consent.

I wanted my questions cleared up.

    The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

    Shown by articles of the Code of Alabama:

    13A-6-70: (c) A person is deemed incapable of consent if he is: (1) Less than 16 years old...

    13A-6-67 : (a) A person commits the crime of sexual abuse in the second degree if: ...

    (2) He, being 19 years old or older, subjects another person to sexual contact who is less than 16 years old, but more than 12 years old.

    13A-6-62 (a) A person commits the crime of rape in the second degree if: ...

    (1) Being 16 years old or older, he or she engages in sexual intercourse with a member of the opposite sex less than 16 and more than 12 years old; provided, however, the actor is at least two years older than the member of the opposite sex.

    13A-6-64 : (a) A person commits the crime of sodomy in the second degree if: ...

    (1) He, being 16 years old or older, engages in deviate sexual intercourse with another person less than 16 and more than 12 years old.

    The State Legislature recently passed Act 2010-497 making it a crime for any school employee to have any sexual relations with a student under the age of 19. A school employee includes a teacher, school administrator, student teacher, safety or resource officer, coach, and other school employee. Age of the student and consent is not a defense. So thus, the age of consent of 16 cannot be used.

    13A-6-81 : A person commits the crime of a school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19 years if:

    (a) He or she is a school employee and engages in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student, regardless of whether the student is male or female. Consent is not a defense to a charge under this section.

    (b) As used in this section, sex act means sexual intercourse with any penetration, however slight; emission is not required.

    (c) As used in this section, deviant sexual intercourse means any act of sexual gratification between persons not married to each other involving the sex organs of one person and the mouth or anus of another.

    (d) The crime of a school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student is a Class B felony.

    13A-6-82 : A person commits the crime of a school employee having sexual contact with a student under the age of 19 years if:

    (a) He or she is a school employee and engaging in sexual contact with a student, regardless of whether the student is male or female. Consent is not a defense to a charge under this section.

    (b) As used in this section, sexual contact means any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a student, done for the purpose of gratifying the sexual desire of either party. The term includes soliciting or harassing a student to perform a sex act.

    you are better off to live in fear. You decisions should be based on doing what is right and not by what you think you can get away with.
