"she is at least 18, looks young, and does not own a car.....hmmmm....."
I'm guessing you don't get out much? When I was in my late teens and early 20s I drove around A LOT of my friends that didn't have vehicles when my stepson was in his late teens and early 20s he also drove around A LOT of his friends that didn't have cars as well, and I still know a lot of people 'younger people' that don't own a car and continue to bum rides from others because they can and/or simply because of the cost of owning a vehicle at a young age can be a deal killer. This is especially true now with companies like Uber and Lyft that can be more economical to many younger people vs owning a vehicle even outside cities. Also, consider this was a 'Sugar Daddy' site so wouldn't it be logical to expect that the girls expected to be picked up and catered to?
although it would be pretty difficult to not see the difference between a 16 year old and a 23 year old when you picked them up
I would argue against that all day long, with the proper makeup, dress and demeanor there are some 16 year olds that can easily pass for being in their early 20s
I certainly believe Cody performed a bonehead move picking up and paying for a call girl on a sugar daddy site, but I'm not going to jump to conclusions that he was aware she was under the legal age of consent.
