To me this reads as that the person in question was less than 5 years older than the victim.

In some states, from what I understand, there is a difference in the "level" of crime when, say, the victim is 15 years old and the offender a 19 year old, as opposed to a crime that involves, say, a 15 year old and a 21 year old.

That's what I thought, too. As I look further into it I'm thinking it might mean less than 5 year age difference between the victim and the perpetrator. 


Age difference is important because here in CA, it would be viewed (legally) differently if a 15yo did something with a 13yo versus a 20yo with a 14yo.

I am not a lawyer. I only know this much because of mandatory reporting issues.
