Wyoming Age of Consent Lawyers
What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Wyoming?
In Wyoming, the age of consent for sex is 16 years old for women, and 18 for men, making it one of the few states that have a separate age of consent for males and females. The law only specifically addresses heterosexual conduct, so it is not certain what the age of consent for homosexual conduct is in Wyoming.
Wyoming, like other states, makes allowances for partners who are under the age of consent, but close to the same age. A minor who is 12 or older can legally consent to sex with a person who is no more than 4 years older.
Violations of Wyoming’s age of consent laws carry punishments of up to 20 years in prison.
