Can a 19 year old date a 17-year-old in Idaho?
The change to state law would allow consensual penetration between 16-year-old girls and boys up to age 19, and 17-year-old girls and boys up to age 20. Sexual acts with children under 16 are punishable by lewd conduct laws. Currently, only men can be prosecuted under Idahos rape laws.
Can a 19 year old date a 15 year old in Idaho?
For example, it is rape for a 19-year-old to have sex with a 15-year-old, and it is also rape for a 23-year-old person to allow a 17-year-old to perform oral sex on him or her. A conviction for statutory rape can result in a prison sentence ranging from one year to life. (Idaho Code Ann. 18-6101, 18-6104 (2018).)
