    Maybe because in Texas, the "age of consent" is 17? So weird! He's not having sex, or even accused of that.

    You are so right!

      doesn't necessarily equate to no longer being a minor for other purposes, but admittedly I don't know the exact law in Texas.

      In many states though, you can be treated like a minor for criminal cases up to the age of 21 or even older.
