Last quote by Maggie Scott

Although the factual absence of consent is not an ingredient of the offence, it is a material factor for the purposes of sentencing. Here the victim willingly participated in the sexual intercourse and there was, in fact, consent. So too, whilst there is no defence to this offence because of strict liability, the fact is that you would have had a defence if the victim had been a few months older. The statutory offence for girls aged over 13 to 16 years provides for a defence based on reasonable grounds of belief by the accused that the victim was above the age of consent.feedback
