Louisiana dating laws
So, another example, and please don't think this applies to me too, but a 50 yr old man could not be prosecuted for any sexual crimes (assuming the sex was consensual) with a 17 yr old girl if the age of consent is 17? As another poster pointed out, there are laws prohibiting sex with anyone under the age of 17, if the perpetrator is 2 years older than the victim. Felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile is committed when: (1) A person who is nineteen years of age or older has sexual intercourse, with consent, with a person who is twelve years of age or older but less than seventeen years of age, when the victim is not the spouse of the offender; or (2) A person who is seventeen years of age or older has sexual intercourse, with consent, with a person who is twelve years of age or older but less than fifteen years of age, when the victim is not the spouse of the offender; or (3) A person commits a second or subsequent offense of misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile, or a person who has been convicted one or more times of violating one or more crimes for which the offender is required to register as a sex offender under R. 2 commits a first offense of misdemeanor carnal knowledge of a juvenile. As used in this Section, "sexual intercourse" means anal, oral, or vaginal sexual intercourse. Lack of knowledge of the juvenile's age shall not be a defense.
