Missouri -- Age of Consent
EDITOR: This does re-confirm our age chart. If you are over 18 but under 21, the age of consent is 14. If you are over 21, you may not have sexual intercourse with anyone under 17.
We have changed the entry in our chart to reflect the confusion in Missouri. We are able to document the age of consent as 17 provided one person if over 21. We can't document anything in which both parties are over 14 but less than 17.
