    Q: Even if the sexual contact was consensual, why wasn’t the UW basketball player charged with child rape? Isn’t the age of consent 18?

    A: No. Under Washington State law, a 16-year-old is legally capable of consenting to having sexual contact.

    I'm guessing the arrest was for the public indecency of having sex in a park.
