Age of consent?

In Illinois the age of consent is 17. If I’m 26 is it legal for me to have sexual intercourse with a 17 year old girl.

    Yes. That's what the age of consent MEANS. If you are over the age of consent, you can have sex with anyone also over the age of consent, no other restrictions. And you both are over the age of consent, therefore it is legal. Very simple.

    The age of consent is 16 years of age in most States .from that you get a 4-year difference 17 and a 26 year old isn't going to wash with the court if you get charged with statutory rape. you have to be very careful with stuff like that because if you wind up charged with a sexual crime you're going to get 15 years in prison and then when you get out of jail you're going to be a registered sex offender for the rest of your life friend no pussy is worth that price!

      Factually incorrect, if the age is 16, then that person may legally consent to having sex with anyone regardless of their age ( providing that other person is also over 16 ) the 4 year tolerance to which refer applies to minors 15 and younger.

      Nobody asked your opinion on sexual hygiene. Just answer the question.

    Sounds like a real looser, who has to prey on someone young and innocent because females your age know who and what you are.

      Clive, I know who and what you are.

      Timothy; just because you admit you can not handle women your own age, I would not jump to admit it in public.

    Yes, of course....if she's over the age of consent, it's legal...even if you were 66.

    Once the younger person reaches 17, it does not matter if the older person is 17 years and one day or 70.

    Maybe, but why would you want to? When you're looking back at your life on your deathbed, are you going to wish that you could have nailed more idiots?

    Let's see - if it's legal to have sex when you are 17 is it legal for a 17 year old to have sex.

    The answer appears to be yes.
