In Alabama, where the age of consent is 16, a person who has become 16 can legally boink anyone 16 or older. Except: The State Legislature passed Act 2010-497 made it a crime for any school employee to have any sexual relations with a student under the age of 19.
In addition, in Alabama, there is a Romeo and Juliet exemption for consensual genital intercourse between a minor who is 12 or older and a defendant who is LESS than two years older than the younger minor and of the opposite sex.
