Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

The Colorado law, 18-3-402, states in part: "At the time of the commission of the act, the victim is at least fifteen years of age but less than seventeen years of age and the actor is at least ten years older than the victim and is not the spouse of the victim

As you can see, the minor needs to be under 17 for the other party to get into trouble. As such, you should be okay.

I hope that helps. Please remember to click "accept."
