Yes but since you didn't say how much under 17 I can't be more specific as to what the exact crime and penalty would be.  The laws in Colorado vary on that point; for example was it with a 15 year old or a 10 year old?  It makes a difference.  Here is a copy of a link to a site that you can check: www.sexlaws.org/answer_board_question-statutory_rape_laws_in_colorado
