In Nebraska, a person who is at least 17 years of age may consent to sex with an adult.
As in other states, however, the age of consent is a complex concept in Nebraska.
There are a total of nine states that have a legal age of consent of 17.
Any person who subjects another person to sexual penetration when the actor is nineteen years of age or older and the victim is at least twelve but less than sixteen years of age is guilty of sexual assault in the first degree.
Due to the internet & men traveling out of state or in state to meet 14/15 yr old girls/boys 14 is not legal anymore like it was in hawaii & idaho.The thing I am worried about is that she could press charges against me for dating her 16 year old son.We have not done anything sexual (unless kissing falls under those guidelines) and I am aware of the law that says it is illegal for anyone under the age of 17 to have sex.Under the Nebraska age of consent laws, a person who is 16 usually can legally consent to sex with someone who is no more than 2 years older.So, a 16-year-old babysitter could legally consent to sex with her 18-year-old boyfriend, but not with her 32-year-old employer.
