Pennsylvania Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Pennsylvania?
In Pennsylvania, the age of consent for sexual relations is 16 years old. This applies across the board, to males and females, and to heterosexual as well as homosexual conduct.
Like many other states, Pennsylvania’s age of consent laws make allowances for adolescents who are under the age of consent, but close to the same age. Anyone between the ages of 13 and 16 can consent to have sex with anyone else who is no more than 4 years older.
Pennsylvania’s age of consent laws carry fairly stiff penalties. Some of the more severe violations carry prison terms of up to 20 years.
