Laws regarding legal dating ages
This page explains "age of consent" laws in Las Vegas, Nevada.
If you don’t agree and someone threatens you or touches you sexually they are breaking the law.
An age of consent statute first appeared in secular law in 1275 in England as part of the rape law.
The statute, Westminster 1, made it a misdemeanor to "ravish" a "maiden within age," whether with or without her consent.
However, it is not an offence if the person honestly believed that you were 16 or if there was less than a two-year age difference between you. For example, if a person is 17 and has sex with someone who is 15, it is not a crime.
But if the person was 18, it is a crime unless the person believed the person was 16.
