Navigating Adultery Laws in Kansas: Trustworthy Criminal Defense Attorneys by Your Side

Legal Definition of Adultry

  1. Engaging in sexual intercourse or sodomy with a non-spouse

    • The act involves intimate relations with someone other than one's spouse.

  2. Conditions:

    • Offender is married:

      • The individual committing the act is legally married to another person.

    • Offender is not married but knows the other person is married:

      • The individual is single but is aware that their partner in the act is married to someone else.

Some people think this law is not fair because it goes against people's right to privacy. But, Adultery is only about whether it is legal or not, not about whether it is right or wrong to cheat on a spouse. That is a question of ethics not control by the government.

Lawrence v. Texas

In 2003, the United States Supreme Court made a decision in Lawrence v. Texas about a law in Texas that said it was illegal for two adults to do certain sexual activities together. The Supreme Court said that the state cannot make rules about what adults do in private because adults have a right to privacy and liberty. The law in Texas was also not fair because it only applied to some people and not others. This decision can be used to help decide other cases where adults are consenting to have sex.

Penalty for Adultery

Adultery is a class C misdemeanor punishable by at most, one month in jail and a $500 fine.
