What is the age of consent in arkansas?

Beebe, AR |

can an 18 yr old boy be charged with statutory rape for hving sex with a 15 yr old girl

Age of consent is 16 years old in Arkansas. Unless the defendant was in a position of trust or authority over the victim. I would not expect an 18 year old boy to be charged with SR in that scenario, but prosecutors have surprised me i the past. Good Luck!
