You cannot stipulate to "not arguing about something". That makes no denotative or connotative sense in regard to the word "stipulate." In order to not argue about something, you need to stipulate to the other side's point being a fact or a point of no dispute. This would mean stipulating that Kaitlyn's status as a legal adult before she started dating the minor was a fact of no dispute.
This is completely untrue. The only reason Kaitlyn was able to be arrested is that she was a legal adult dating a minor. "Statutory rape" relates to the "statute" (law) that makes it a crime for a legal adult to have sex with an underage person.ie that whether she was 17 or 18 appears to make no difference under the law.
Had Kaitlyn been 17, the statute would not have covered her activity with the 14 year old.
