    No, en este caso no es consentido. Violación es "rape", no sé si sería sencillamente "child rape" o es "child abuse"?

    child rape = violación de un menor/violación de menores
    statutory rape = violación técnica

    Statutory rape es un término que denota que una persona mayor de edad ha tenido contacto sexual consentido con un/una menor. En este caso el crimen no es tener relaciones sexuales forzadas sino acto sexual con un/una menor. Es un tecnicismo legal bastaaaaaante confuso y en EE UU varía de estado en estado. Aquí unos ejemplos:

    << In two states, Hawaii and Pennsylvania, 14 years is the age of consent. Many other laws were changed to say that having sex with a young teenage girl was statutory rape, but sex with a girl in her mid-teens was only considered statutory rape if the male was three or four years older than she was. In other words, a 15-year-old girl could have sex with a 15-year-old boy, but not with a 19-year-old man.[30]

    For example, in Virginia, 18 is the age of consent. However, a person can only be prosecuted for rape if the victim is under 13 years old. A lesser felony offense can be charged if a person three or more years older has consensual intercourse with a 13- or 14-year old, but it is only a misdemeanor if the offender is less than three years older. It is also considered only a misdemeanor if a person over 18 has consensual intercourse with a child aged 15 or older.[31]

    In Indiana, where the age of consent is 16, there is no longer a crime of statutory rape. Instead, the state can charge an adult with child molestation if the child is under age 14, or with sexual misconduct if the minor is 14 or 15 years old. However, the sexual misconduct charge can only be leveled at people 18 years and older. Thus, a 17-year-old who has sex with a 14-year-old could not be charged with sexual misconduct.[32]
