Having Sex With Teens Still a Crime: Expert

University of Pretoria Centre for Child Law Professor, Ann Skelton, says even if the justice committee's bid to decriminalise sexual intercourse among teenagers is successful, it will still be a crime for adults to have sex with children under the age of 16-years-old.

Last week the committee told Parliament to amend the 2007 Criminal Law - Sexual Offences and Related Matters Act - to bring it in line with two Constitutional Court judgments.
