18 year old dating 16 year old laws

I'm sure that there will be someone else coming along that can confirm or deny this.However, since your daughter is over 18, his mother may be able to obtain a restraining order against her. But I don't really see how she can get a restraining order against my child for the fact she is a senior in his school.Many teenagers first become sexually active before the age of 17. If you are having sex at 15 or 16, are you breaking the law?Fortunately, lawmakers in New York took teenage relationships into account.In New York State, a person who is under age 16 but older than 13 years old can consent to sex with a person who is no more than 4 years older; the crime of the 3rd degree rape only happens when a person over the age of 21 has sex with a person who is under seventeen years old or younger and that person can or may be punished with up to 4 years in prison.The younger the victim is, the more severe the punishment.Voluntary sexual activity with someone younger than 17 is not “consensual” sexual activity as far as Illinois law is concerned.At this age, “consent” is a legal term, not a factual term.



I know each state has different laws so I need information on the laws regarding this in Missouri.

This means anyone younger than 17 years of age cannot lawfully consent to any type of sex act involving sexual conduct.
