I'm being charged with rape, she was sent to a hospital

Customer Question

I'm being charged with rape, she was sent to a hospital to talk to a physiatrist for being unruly. The police are saying that you can't have sex with anyone under the age of 18 if you're older then 21. And are saying that drugs and alcohol were involved,
which they weren't. If 16 is consent then how is it rape? We were dating one another.
