If you are older, then you should have the maturity to not shag if in doubt.
I grew up in the 60s and we knew to avoid children, we knew it was illegal, and had serious consequences.
There's no excuses, 15 years and 11 months means you should display some maturity and wait a month.
We knew it then, we know it now.
All depends. I was on holiday in South Devon years ago, and while playing stuff on the jukebox in the site community centre got chatting to a girl who was also on holiday. Anyway, after a while she comes over and just plonks herself on my lap and puts her arms around my neck! My lucky day!
We were pretty much inseparable for the rest of the holiday, and things got pretty steamy, but didn't go quite as far as full intercourse. As far as I was concerned, she was at least my age, if not slightly older, and I never felt any need to interrogate her, so imagine my shock when, in a letter she wrote later that year she happened to say it was her birthday coming up, and in reply to my next letter asking how old she was, she said 14!
I was 17. There was absolutely no indication at all that she was three years younger than me, in either looks or behaviour or maturity.
We kept in touch by letter for years after, and phone as well, in fact I last had contact with her eleven years ago, but she's dropped off of my radar, sadly.

I wonder what realistic chance the police saw that by raiding the flat they might find evidence involving a 29 year old crime committed?
Exactly my thoughts. The alleged 'crime' was carried out nearly thirty years ago in South Yorkshire, and they're looking for evidence a couple of hundred miles away, in a place the 'suspect' not only wasn't living in at the time, but wasn't even accommodation, but commercial premises.
There would be no computer files, probably no clothing or other likely forms of 'evidence' that could yield anything at all that could incriminate anyone after all this time.
Captain Ahab would be well proud of a fishing expedition on this scale.
