MISSISSIPPI: The age of consent is 16 in Mississippi.In Mississippi, people who engage in sexual activity with children under the state’s age of consent (16 years old) may be convicted of statutory rape or sexual battery. It is legal for a person to have sex with someone who is under the age of consent so long as both parties are at least 14 years old and under 21 years old.

The law states that so long as the sexual relationship is not otherwise “unlawful” or with a “chaste” individual, an adult may “entice” a minor age sixteen and older to engage in sexual intercourse. People who engage in sexual activity with children who are underage may be convicted of statutory rape (also called criminal sexual conduct).

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: The age of consent is 16 in the District of Columbia.

Unlike some other states, the District of Columbia does not have a separate law for homosexual conduct.

As of July 14, 2018, it is illegal for sixteen (16) and seventeen (17) year olds – even though they are of the legal age of consent in Kentucky – to engage in sexual acts with those who are more than ten (10) years older than them. There is an exception to consent laws for persons lawfully married to each other. However, as of July 14, 2018, KRS 402.020 is amended so that no one under the age of eighteen (18) years old can legally marry in Kentucky, except that a seventeen (17) year old may petition a district or family court for permission to do so. Even then, this exception is only available to a seventeen (17) year old and another person with an age difference of no more than four (4) years. Consent laws are statutory creations with no regard for anything other than delineated boundaries.

If you are outside those lines, you are considered to have committed what is commonly known as “statutory rape”.
