Those who have sex with a person under the age of 16 can be imprisoned for up to 5 years

In the law signed by the president, accountability for sexual violence has been strengthened. Penalties for sexual crimes, especially those committed against minors, have been dramatically increased.

Jurist Khushnudbek Khudoiberdiev interprets this law as follows: according to the current law, the accused who had sexual intercourse with a person under 16 years of age with his consent had the opportunity to escape from responsibility on the pretext that he did not know the age of the victim. The new law ensures the inevitability of the responsibility of such persons, regardless of whether the accused knows the age of the victim or not, he is sentenced to imprisonment for up to 5 years in ordinary cases, and up to 10 years in aggravated cases.

Note that this is not about touching the private parts of a person under the age of 16 against their will. The punishment for such an act is more severe (from 10 to 15 years).

Above we are talking about having sex at will. That is, even if a person under the age of 16 has sex voluntarily, the person who has sex with him is considered a criminal and, depending on the situation, may be sentenced to imprisonment for up to 10 years.

CONCLUSION: Persons who have sex with a girl or boy under the age of 16 are subject to criminal liability. If a person under the age of 16 wants it, he can be imprisoned for up to 5 years, if he doesn't want it, if his honor is touched, then he can be imprisoned for up to 15 years.
