Hi can anyone explain
statutory rape laws? A child who is 16 with a man who is 32. Is that legal?
QLD : Criminal Code Act 1899(Sections 208 and 215)(link is external) The
age of consent for anal sex (referred to as sodomy in legislation) is 18 years, and for all other sexual acts (referred to as carnal knowledge in legislation) is 16 years.
There is an exemption if the person is a position of authority over the person then the age of consent is 18.
