If the age of consent was rightfully 21 what punishment would a 19 year old get for molesting a 9 year old girl?

    Different states have different sentencing guidelines for child rape/molestation.

    It would be just like today and vary dependent on what jurisdiction they were in.Various states would have various laws regarding differences in the ages of the actors, their relationship and other factors.

    They would still quite likely be child molestation charges. Even if they increased the age of consent to 21 years old they would say that at 19 years of age you're no longer considered a little child and should know not to have sex with a nine-year-old

    The age of consent will never "rightfully" be 21, Peter Pan.

    There is no "rightful" age of majority.

    Even children get tried as adults for serious crimes.

    An older teen molesting a young child would be trialed and sentenced as an adult

    The same as it is now which is usually pretty stiff.
