As long as the parents of minor children don't object and no sexual contact of any sort occurs, teens can date anyone of any age.
The laws regarding sexual conduct vary in several respects.
ATLANTA -- High school football star Marcus Dixon was released from the Floyd County jail Monday after the Georgia Supreme Court threw out his 10-year prison sentence for sexual offenses with a 15-year-old classmate.
Dixon had spent 15 months behind bars before being released on bond.
There you can find that in the state of Georgia, "a person commits the offense of statutory rape when he or she engages in sexual intercourse with any person under the age of 16 years and is not his or her spouse." The law goes on to spell out that "if the victim is at least 14 but less than 16 years of age and the person convicted of statutory rape is 18 or younger and is no more than four years older than the victim, such person shall be guilty of a misdemeanor." This means that a 17-year-old convicted of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old in Georgia, would be guilty of a misdemeanor.
