The Age of Consent Means Consent of the State

 Connecticut law makes it a Felony for  a person to engages in sexual intercourse with another person where the other person is thirteen years of age or older, but under sixteen years of age and the one of the two is more than three years older than such other person.  This is whether both parties consent or not.  The law carries stiff penalties and is not to be taken lightly.  It applies to adults and teens.  Speak to your teen about the age of consent.
