HB 137 will raise Age of Consent from 16 to 18

The latestsex offense related bill in AL legislature:,,

HB 137: Increases age of consent from 16 to 18. What this does is increase the age one can be charged for statutory crimes. By the way the law is written, a teen couple 25 months apart can fall under the statute.

ReFORM-AL opposes this bill, it will increase the number of individuals placed on the registry for a "Romeo and Juliet" offense.
