I think 500 years ago she would've been considered too old to marry, and past her prime. They married em' off at like twelve in the Dark Ages.

Yeah, I thought age of consent in OH is 16. It's still wrong and a total betrayal of trust, but isn't it legal?

Yes she was 16 years old but he was suppose to be counseling her on her parents divorce not on how to have sex.

I hope they throw the book at him. Her parents trusted him to counsel her ... instead he took advantage of her. I do not care what she was wearing or what she may have said or done. This is a man of the cloth and he should be more responsible than that.

16 is immoral and unethical in all our minds, especially with a trusted pastor.

Whether 16 is legal or not, a pastor has a position where he has influence over his parishoners that the average man does not have. That makes it sexual battery when the victim is of age. This is much the same as if a teacher has sexual relations with a student who is of legal age. That doesn't even begin to address the moral implications.

Even if 16 is the legal age of consent, this guy is a creep if he took advantage of a girl that young. It is even worse if he lured her in under the guise of being a trust worthy man of religion.
