Depends where you live. In New Zealand it is legal as the age of consent is 16

That depends entirely on where the 16 year old has sex. Which you didn't say.Source(s): There are no international age of consent laws.

It depends on the state and their age of consent. Many states believe 16 is too young to be mature enough to make that decision, so it would be illegal for the 17 year old to have set with the 16 year old. Generally, it would not be prosecuted though.

In some places yes. In other places, no. Depends on the age of consent where the sex occurred.
