jailbait
American and Australian English

->Meaning: someone below the legal age of consent

-For example:

-He claims he had no idea the girl was jailbait, and insists that she told him she was nineteen years old.

-One of the greatest novels in the English language is about a man who falls for a girl even though he knows she’s jailbait. It’s called “Lolita”.
