Can a guy who is for example 25 have sex with a 17 years old girl in New Mexico legal?

It's not about me I don't live in the US:) but I read that in US states they have all different age of consent.

  • "In New Mexico, the age of consent is 17 years old. If an adult (an individual over the age of 18) has sex with a minor between the ages of 13 and 16, the adult may be prosecuted for 4th degree criminal sexual penetration.

    Different standards apply when the offender is in some position of trust or authority over the minor, such as a teacher, employer, or coach. In such situations, one should assume that the age of consent is 18, at the very least."
