As Media Matters for America has documented, Jennings' attorney wrote in a 2004 letter that the student in question 16 years old at the time of his conversation with Jennings, which is -- and was at the time -- the legal age of consent in Massachusetts, while Jennings' book suggests that the student had been 16 or 17.
