France has chosen to set its lawful period of sexual consent at 15.
This implies under the law, sex between a grown-up and anybody more youthful than 15 will be seen as sexual assault.
BBC reports that the nation recently did not have a lawful time of consent, and sex with individuals under 15 as of now must be ended up being considered as assault.
Offenders may only be charged with sexual abuse with minors under the
current legislation, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in
prison and a fine of €75,000, same as sexual assault of non-minors.
