Can charges be filed against my 18 year old daughter for having consensual sex with a 16 year old girl?

Question Details: The relationship is consensual and they are in love. The 16 year old girl's parents do not know about the relationship. I am afraid if they find out, then they would file charges against my daughter for sexual abuse or misconduct. They would assume that my daughter made their daughter gay and caused her to do sexual things. Can they file charges against my daughter? Also, if they have a bad break-up could there be any issues with the 16 year old filing charges against my daughter? How can we protect ourselves to avoid issues with this?
