    ... true Kmackle.

    794.05 Unlawful sexual activity with certain minors.-- (1) A person 24 years of age or older who engages in sexual activity with a person 16 or 17 years of age commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. As used in this section, "sexual activity" means oral, anal, or vaginal penetration by, or union with, the sexual organ of another; however, sexual activity does not include an act done for a bona fide medical purpose Florida code, Title XLVI, Chapter 794--

    So unless there was a "bona fide medical purpose" involved... this is a felony.   Sorry :(

      That is the part that states that it is illegal to have the sex with the someone under 18, if the offender is over 23, <24s get to have consensual sex with partners down to age 16.   So the 23=16 thru 18 thing IS the step-down.   There is no step down under 16.   It is a felony rap and the only way to circumvent lifetime sex registry is via the aforementioned R & J appeal.
