Montana Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Montana?
In Montana, the age of consent for sex is 16 years old for females, and 18 years old for males. For homosexual conduct, the age of consent in Montana is 18, for both men and women.
Montana is one of the few states that have a different age of consent for men and women.
Unlike most other states, in Montana, there is no allowance for persons below the age of consent to have consensual sex if they are close to the same age. For example, in most states, if 2 people are below the age of consent (but usually above a certain minimum age, often around 13 or 14), but close to the same age (within 3 years, for example), they can legally consent to sex.
In Montana, the age difference between the partners is irrelevant, if one or both of them are below the age of consent.
