You are right

Agreed. It is very, very common for the above situation to happen, and often the incident is reported not because the victim feels violated but because of a grudge towards the adult party or the discovery of relationship by parents who the adult party is in disfavor with. This may sound vulgar, and maybe it wont get posted, but the fact is that in this day and age most 14 and 15 year olds know whats going on, at least as much as an 18 or 19 year old partner (Beyond 20 gets sketchy) and their mutual agreement to the act in nearly all cases is no different when the underage turns 16 (Statutory age of consent.) It's a touchy subject but it is true that in the situation you describe an 18 year old can find himself in a tough situation, if the prosecutor is aggressive, over something that was uncontestedly consentual and was reported in retaliation for unreturned phone calls or public disrespect.
