To put it simply for the stupids on here (i.e. most of you). You have all been arguing over an amendment to the state constitution made in 2007 confirming the age of consent as being 16! Thats right no change in age was made

Not exatly. I would argue that Smith vs State did not trump the Constitution. The Smith case was not based on two consenting partners where one was simply older than the other and the younger being between the ages of 14 and 15.

A 16 year old can drive a car where they can possibly kill themselves and others. So they should be appear to have sex.

This is wrong on so many levels. They changed the age of sexual consent to 16 this year in South Carolina. This state is a joke!! All these poor misguided teenager girls are now being preyed upon by old perverts because now the law says its ok. Wtf do they know! What a crock of s***.

there are a lot of 15 year old that want a older man and it's not far to them that the government says no about it unless you are raped its consensual
