Question: Is there a Romeo and Juliet law in AZ?

While the Arizona age of consent is 18 years old, the law does have special rules for minors between the ages of 15 and 19 years old. Known as the Romeo and Juliet law, it allows for consensual sex between two young partners between the ages of 15 and 19, so long as they are not more than 2 years apart in age.

Can an 18 year old date a 17 year old Arizona?

The defendant is 18 years old, and their partner is 17. Sexual contact between these two does not violate the age of consent laws in Arizona, even though one of them is under the age of consent.
