Question: Can a 16-year-old date a 20 year old in Texas?

The age of consent in Texas is 17. This means any individual 17 years or older can legally agree to have sex or participate in sexual activities. Therefore, any minor 16 or younger cannot consent to sex with adults.

Can a 16 year old date a 23 year old in Texas?

Understanding Statutory Rape It can even happen when the minor agrees to sexual activity. For example, if a 23-year-old and a 16-year-old were in a relationship and had intercourse, the 23-year-old would be guilty of statutory rape, no matter if the 16-year-old provided his or her consent or not.
