Scott Wiener (D), the State Senator and an openly gay person, introduced the law allowing judges keeping LGBTQ teens out of the public sex offender registry of the state in case teens are of similar age. For straight teenagers, this leeway was already previously there.

At the moment, people over 18 are not legal to have sex with persons under 18. The newly accepted law remains untouched.
