Depends on state: The answer to your question involves relies a little more on what goes on in the relationship. In some stated the 20yo would be considered a child predator & subject to permanent listing on a predator website. Some may not. It is best to check with local statutes. Flip the roles to 20y male & 15yo female. Many state laws don't care who's who.
