Question: What is the age of consent in Alabama?

In Alabama, the age of consent for sexual intercourse is 16. Generally, a person over the age of 16 can consent to sex with anyone else who is over the age of 16.

Can a 16 year old date a 21 year old in Alabama?

In Alabama, it is illegal for an adult (someone 18 or older) to have sex with a minor (someone younger than 16), even if the sex is consensual. Those who break the law have committed statutory rape.

Yes is the short answer. But you have rights as well. Until the age of majority, someone has to have custody of you, from a legal standpoint. Unless the matter is worked out through a court proceeding, then your parents would have rights
