Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Yes, unfortunately. You can be prosecuted unless you were less than three years older than the victim. There is a close-in-age exception to Criminal Sexual Contact with a minor.
