Question: What is the Romeo and Juliet law in Florida?

Floridas “Romeo and Juliet” law was created during the 2007 Legislative Session to address concerns about high school age youth being labeled as sexual offenders or sexual predators as a result of participating in a consensual sexual relationship.

How does the Romeo and Juliet law work in Florida?

In Florida, it is illegal for a person age 18 or older to have sex with someone under the age of 18, even if the sex is consensual. The reason for this is that minors are not capable of giving informed consent to sex in the eyes of the law.
