Q: Will he be able to beat this case if she admitted to lieng about her age and initiated it and had previous accusations
A: You didn't provide enough information about the case. That said, most age-related cases are "strict liability" which means she could lie and even show a perfect fake ID and he would still be guilty. When the prosecution goes forward in those cases, her age determines his guilt, and her behavior influences his punishment. Sometimes a criminal defense attorney can convince the prosecution not to go forward but that depends on the facts of the case, the skill of the defense attorney, and the mindset of the prosecutor.
