What if Sexual Contact with a Minor Was Consensual?

In Massachusetts, an adult or minor who has intercourse or sexual contact with a person under the age of 16 may face statutory rape charges. By law, persons who are under 16 cannot legally give consent, so even if the contact was agreed upon by both parties, felony charges may still be pressed.

As with most criminal cases, the specific circumstances of the case may vary, so it is wise to consult an experienced Massachusetts sex crimes lawyer if you are facing criminal charges. For more information, contact James Powderly at 508-343-0676.
