Oklahoma Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Oklahoma?
In Oklahoma, the age of consent for sex is 16 years old. This applies to both men and women.
As in many other states, Oklahoma’s law is somewhat flexible when it comes to sex between individuals who are below the age of consent, but close to the same age.
As a general matter, anyone over the age of 14 can consent to sex with anyone under 18.
Oklahoma currently has no valid statute which provides an age of consent for homosexual conduct.
Also, Oklahoma has a statute on the books which, theoretically, could be used to impose the death penalty for the most severe violations of its age of consent laws. The Supreme Court recently held that states may not impose the death penalty for child rape, so it is exceedingly unlikely that such a punishment would actually be carried out. However, it should serve as an indication of how seriously Oklahoma takes sex with minors.
