Connecticut Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent in Connecticut?
In Connecticut, the age of consent to engage in sexual activity is 16 years old. Like many states, the law only applies if there is a certain minimum age difference between the parties. In Connecticut, there will be no prosecution if the parties’ ages are 2 years apart or less.
If one of the parties is under the age of 13, and someone more than 2 years older has sex with that person, the punishment for statutory rape is far more severe.
Also, if one of the parties in Connecticut is over 18, he or she cannot legally have sex with someone who is under the age of consent, regardless of the age difference between them.
