Utah lawmakers propose statutory rape law changes
Utah Lawmakers are trying to narrow the age gap between adults and teenagers in statutory rape cases.
Under current laws, sexual conduct between teens aged 16 or 17 and someone 10 years older than them is illegal.
The Utah House of Representatives passed a bill in a 64-4 vote that would narrow the age gap to seven years older than the teen. The bill will go to the Utah Senate for a vote.
