    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.

    If your in the States, consent ranges from 16 to 18, depending on the state that the both of you are in! https://www.ageofconsent.net/states. This will show you the cut off age for consent in the US

    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.
