In Arizona, failing to follow age of consent laws has criminal repercussions that not only destroy one’s reputation, but also their ability to secure employment and other necessities later in life. The term “age of consent” refers to the age that one needs to be in order to consent to sexual intercourse or any other sexual activity with another person.If you are under 12, a person can't have sex with you or touch you sexually or perform a sexual act in front of you, even if you agree.If you are 12 to 15, a person can’t have sex with you, touch you sexually or perform a sexual act in front of you if they are more than two years older than you, even if you agree.For some sexual crimes, when the victim is under 16 years old, the law doesn't allow the accused to claim that the young person agreed to the sexual activity.This is because the minimum legal age for consenting to a sexual activity is 16.Those who break Arizona’s age of consent laws potentially expose themselves to prosecution that can lead to incarceration or mandatory enrollment as a sex offender on the sex offender registry until age 25, at the least.
