Alabama dating laws modern japanese dating customs
If you were under this age and sexually involved with your boyfriend, he could be charged with Rape in the 2nd degree even if the sex was consentual.
If you are just asking about dating, as long as your parents say that it is ok, it is perfectly legal for you as a 16 year old to date an older man.
Dating is not legislated in any state so there is no 'legal age' at which you can, or cannot, date. Moreover, having sex with a person under the age of 12 is rape in the first degree. In Alabama law, there are no recognized exceptions to age of consent. This type of statutory rape is a strict liability offense, meaning that even if a defendant had a good faith belief or made an honest mistake as to an individual's age, they will still be criminally liable.In Alabama, there are laws on the books which make all homosexual intercourse, regardless of the age of the partners, illegal.However, it is probable that a state court would default to the age of consent for heterosexual conduct, assuming that the state legislature does not clarify the issue.If you believe you may have violated Alabama's age of consent laws, you should seek legal advice immediately.
