Kentucky Lawmaker Wants An Age of Consent Law Changed

A Kentucky lawmaker wants to change a law governing the age of consent.

State Representative J.R. Gray says he plans to file a bill that would make it illegal for a teacher to have sex with someone under 18.

Teachers break no criminal laws by having consensual sex with students, as long as they are at least 16 years old.

An Associated Press investigation shows state officials handled nearly 100 cases of teacher sexual misconduct from 2001 to 2005 is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
