The Age of Consent is the age at which a person is deemed by Vermont law to be capable of consenting to, and engaging in, sexual acts.
Most states do not refer specifically to statutory rape; instead they use designations such as sexual assault and sexual abuse to identify prohibited activity.
Regardless of the designation, these crimes are based on the premise that until a person reaches a certain age, he is legally incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse.
