Mark Sanchez's sexual exploits are front page news today and it's not because he dated a celebrity. Instead, Mark Sanchez is in the headlines for hooking up with Eliza Kruger, the 17-year-old daughter of Konrad "Chip" Kruger, a Connecticut hedge fund manager.

But, now Eliza Kruger has become an instant celebrity due to this scandal. Word is she leaked the details to Deadspin, which also let the cat out of the bag on Brett Favre's "junk photo" texts to Jenn Sterger.

While at first glance one would think that Mark Sanchez is going to go to jail for this, but he can't. In the state of New York, the legal age of consent is 17. However, It is extremely unethical for a man of his age to be having relations with anyone under the age of 18.

This certainly won't destroy Mark Sanchez's career, but it does make him look like a creep. He's 24 years old and the starting quarterback of an NFL franchise. He can date super models, actresses, professionals - any woman he wants. For him to have relations with a 17-year-old or even an 18-year-old for that matter is rather seedy.
