I was curious as to what age difference constitutes child

Customer Question

I was curious as to what age difference constitutes child molestation? And does that including siblings?
JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: I live in Wyoming and I am 65. I was molested in Mississippi 58 years ago
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No - he;s dead
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: There would be no purpose - he's dead - and I don't think I can take it out on his estate. I'm fine now - it didn't leave any permanent problems with me - just contempt for the act

I have no way of knowing off the top of my head what the law was 60 yrs ago, but today child sex assault is for a child 15 yrs and younger and a perpetrator more than 3 yrs older.

There is no exception for siblings.
