Yes, unless they are a teacher, the person is disabled, etc. The age of consent is 16 in Michigan.

16 is the age of consent in Michigan, so a 17 year can have consensual sex with an adult, no matter how old that adult is, as long as the adult is not related to the minor, or in certain positions of authority over the minor, such as a teacher.

In Michigan, the age of consent is 16 years old unless the older participant is in a position of power, typically a teacher or coach. Thus, depending on the status of the 48 year old this may be legal.

    Yes, provided 17 is within the state's age of consent, the two are not related, and he is not an authority figure such as a teacher.
