    Hi all,

    Under what section of the NSW Crimes Act Legislation does it outline statutory rape? As in, the indication that an 18 year old can not have sexual intercourse with a 16 year old.

    Thank you.

    Consider section 66C of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW).
    Consider also section 77 of that act, which provides for
    consent not being a defence to (inter alia) a section 66C offence,
    where the child is under the age of 16.

    Where people (especially young people) can have a problem is that,
    age of consent or not, creating, and/or publishing an image (whether still or moving)
    of a person aged under 18 (even yourself), can still amount to one or more
    child pornography offences (variously producing, possessing, and distributing).
