Age of consent laws and Unlawful sexual conduct with minor laws
Weirton, WV |
Is there any type of laws being broken and charged with if i am 23 and dated a 17 year old? what if the parents of the 17 year old do not approve? what if they do approve? does sexual contact make a difference?
The age of consent in West Virginia is 16 years old. The age of consent usually does not matter unless you are involved in intimate contact with a minor. Usually the best bet in all situations though is to wait until someone is 18.
