the legality depends on where this occurring. some states do say that 16 is the age of consent
if it is illegal your parents for one may make a big deal about it. if it is illegal, and again it depends where you live, i think you should talk to your sister about the potential consequences. just so she is informed about what's going on. let her know that she may need to keep the relationship a secret or not tell people her real age in case they have an issue with statutory rape

Yes he is running the risk of getting charged with statutory rape. This doesn't happen when the genders are switched because our society somehow believes that boys are lucky to have sex with an older female, but young females are to stupid to make decisions for themselves. But they push the "strong and independent" nonsense down our throats, until we act like it then step in and tell us we aren't smart enough to be making our own choices. It's a shit system.
Age of consent varies state by state (if you live in the U. S.) and by country. In some places, it's as low as 16. Therefore, it may be perfectly legal or clearly illegal for your sister to date that man, depending where you live. If you want to intervene on a moral level, that's your call.
That depends on your state if you're in the US. My concern though is what would a 20 years old want in a 16 years old? They're children. I'm 23 and I would have an issue being with a girl as young as 19, but that's just me.
There can be a consent document filled out by her parents at the police station. This ensures legality butIso t k ow the laws of where you live. Its common for girls to date older guys and her parents have the real power if they charge him, no-one else so he better treat her right.
