In addition, as parents your girlfriend's parents have some say in what activities they permit their daughter to participate in. Being charged with a criminal offense is not a fun thing whether you are ultimately convicted or not.
The girl is a minor and as such her parents are responsible for her.

Take, for example, the widely publicized case of Marcus Dwayne Dixon, an 18-year-old high school honor student and star football player who had sex with a 15-year-old female classmate.
She claimed it was rape, he claimed it was consensual, and a jury acquitted him of the charges.
I've heard people say it's illegal for an 18 year old to date a 15 year old, but the thing is I know and trust them about not having sex until she's 18 as well. The problem is not "dating." The problem is statutory rape.
One thing leads to another and these two start having consensual sex, then they have a spat or her mother gets annoyed and BAM! It's classic, which is why his mother is rightfully and wisely concerned.
