In Kentucky, the age of consent for sex is 16 years old. However, it generally only applies when a person younger than 16 but older than 14 has sex with a person who is 21 or older.
The age of consent is 18 when the offender is over 21, and acts as a foster parent for the victim.
Sex with a person aged 14 or under by a person 18 or over is also a violation of the Kentucky’s age of consent laws.
If the victim is 16 or younger, no person who is in a position of trust (teacher, employer, coach, etc.) may have sex with that person, regardless of age disparity between them.
The age of consent laws in Kentucky apply identically to both heterosexual and homosexual conduct.Unlawful transaction with a minor in the first degree is a Class B felony “if the minor so used is less than sixteen (16) years old at the time the minor engages in the prohibited activity[.]” KRS 530.064(2)(b).
Unless the girl did not consent to the sexual activity, or was forced by the man to engage in sexual activity, or was "enslaved" and forced to perform sex, then the 20 year old should not be charged with a crime.
In Kentucky, 16 year old girl can consent to sex with a 20 year old man.
