Kansas Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Kansas?
In Kansas, the age of consent for sexual activity is 16. Unlike many other states, there is no mitigating “buffer zone” for partners who are very close to the same age. It is still a crime, no matter how close in age the two participants are.
Any sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 14 is treated as rape. Intercourse with a child between the ages of 14 and 16 is illegal, but is a lesser crime, called “indecent liberties with a child.”
The age of consent laws in Kansas apply to males and females, and to heterosexual and homosexual conduct.
