  1. If you mean an age of consent to sex it is still 17 in New York State.

    I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 385-8015 or via email at The above answer is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.

  2. Still 17

    The above answer does not constitute an attorney client relationship and/ or retention of counsel. This answer is based upon the facts presented and may change if additional information is provided. The rules of the Bar for New York State may require me to advise that this could be construed as attorney advertisement.

  3. As noted by the other attorney's the age to consent to sex remains at 17.

    This advice is not meant to create an attorney-client relationship and is a general anwer to the question posed.
