The answer is the same; it depends on the state. Some states do prosecute and even register both partners in under-age relationships. Several years ago the state of Utah prosecuted both a 12 year old boy and his pregnant, 13 year old girlfriend for sexual abuse of a child under 14. They were each named as the victim in the other’s case. They were both put on the registry.
