Is an 18 year old dating a minor illegal

Under Illinois law, the age of consent for any type of sexual activity is, typically, 17 years.

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

Statutory rape occurs when a person over the age of consent engages in sexual intercourse with someone under the statutory age of consent, also known as a minor.

In most states, the age of consent has been arbitrarily designated by statute.

Prosecution for the examples cited above are rare, but they illustrate the nature of Illinois’ age of consent law.

An arrest and criminal prosecution is much more likely when there is any type of disparity in age.

Federal law makes it criminal to engage in a sexual act with another person who is between the age of 12 and 16 if they are at least four years younger than you.

Each state takes a different approach as the age of consent has ranged from 10 to 18.

Don't fight back, but show her that you understand her concern but that he is nothing like that. Now she's threatening to throw him in jail if i ever contact him again. My suggestion is to keep it on the low freom the parents until the time is right. We have gone out on soem dates then one day he's just like he can't go out with me because i am too young...

If you don't act all childish about it, it might help show her that you are responsible and very capable of making good decisions on you own w/o putting yourself into danger. But just know SOMEBODY stands behind you in your decicion to stay with him. He is a year and some..i know is that when he turns 19 one month later i will be 17...

I dont know what to do, and after her saying it was just wrong, and makes him a creep, iam thinking iam weird. Well I am 16 and I was dating a guy who is 17, but he will be turning 18 two days before I turn 17, which would mean I was a minor dating an 18 year old.
