Nebraska Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Nebraska?
In Nebraska, the age of consent is 17 years old. However, a person who is 16 or older can usually consent to have sex with a person who is no more than 2 years older.
Nebraska has a different standard when the older person is in a position of authority over the minor, such as a teacher, employer, coach, etc. In such situations, it is best to assume that the age of consent for sexual intercourse is 18 years old, or even 21.
The age of consent law in Nebraska only applies to heterosexual conduct. Nebraska has laws on the books which make all heterosexual conduct illegal. However, the Supreme Court has declared such laws unconstitutional when applied to consenting adults in private settings. Accordingly, it is unclear exactly what the age of consent is in Nebraska for homosexual conduct. Contact a Nebraska Lawyer or your local law enforcement agency for more information.
