In CA, once you are 18, it is legal for you have sex with anyone. I imagine your parents are very concerned because he is so much older than you, obviously did not protect you by using condoms, and may not have your best interest at heart. Try and talk with them about their feelings and concern - instead of the law. It was against the law when you were under 18, and therefore a crime.
