In Washington State, the age of consent for participation in sexual activity is 16 years old. Once an individual reaches the age of 16, they can legally consent to sexual activity with a legal adult who is 18 years of age or older. There are several exceptions to this rule, discussed below. The age of consent laws in the state of Washington are pertinent to both heterosexual and homosexual activity.
For some sexual crimes, when the victim is under 16 years old, the law doesn't allow the accused to claim that the young person agreed to the sexual activity.
