I am a divorce/family law attorney. You need to ask a criminal lawyer your question. It is very likely there has been a "statutory Rape", but I am not sure if he would get in any trouble.

Generally when both are underage and substantially the same age, there is no statutory punishment. Statutory rape applies when one of the parties is over the age of 18 years and the other is underage.
