Age of consent

NC law says it is legal to have sex with a 16 yr old. I don't know how he could be charged as you say he has.

from what i understand about

from what i understand about it its 16 until you turn 21.. after you turn 21 you cant legally have sex with anyone under 18

Seriously??

What high school or college did you attend where it was legal, let alone ethical or moral for an employee to have a relationship with a student?
