Update 06-23-01:  Comments
Two whom it may concern, I just broke three fingers, including a thumb, and am trying through it type through the funny pills they gave em when my hand was too much. Not just a little off balance, but sharp as a tac. So to speak, sharp as an attack on a condistional status law in Alabama. Overall age of consent there is varied to at least three t's.
16 is the default.
18 inclusive applies for many criminal statutes where the girl is hangin out with a boy her Mama dont approave of.
The boy who passed the joint to the 18/9 year old gets hit on liberties and endangerment.

But the really interesting part is marriage. 14 year olds are allowed to marry (Legistlature sure just dropped that ole ball, heh.) in the State fo Alabama.

So we know:
*Alabama has a law saying no on under 16 year olds can have sex.
**Alabama has a law saying chiulder over 14 year olds can marry.
***Alabama must either forbid these two married children from having sex, --OR--
Alabama must say married children 14&15 can have sex but unmarried cant.
$States may not discriminate btw married and unmattered couples in relation to their sexuality by Griswold, Loving, and Redhail.
