That's the problem: Where does molestation, abuse and pedophilia start?

Although common sense says that there was nothing wrong with it, judges face the problem on putting the line and precedence to further cases. Would the sentence been correct if the boy was 20, 25, 35 or 55 years old, or the geirl 13, 11, 10 or 9 years old? Everyone have their opinion what would be appropriate age and their own interpretation what constitutes molestation, in this case for judge it was obviously the age the law says.

Actually, the fault lies with the legislature of the State which did not allow for exceptions to be made. As stated, the Judge was sympathetic but tied to the law and it's punishment. Time for the Governor to step in and pardon this guy.

wow, that's harsh. Clearly in need of serious legislative reform.

Thoughts go to all those involved, particulalrly the 17 year old.

That's the American system of injustice for you. A 17 y/o gets a concentual bj from his girlfriend and goes to jail for 10 years with a lifetime label of sex-offender, esentially ruining his life. I can't help but be curious as to how this case made it to a prosecutors desk in the first place. I would imagine that act in itself probably occurs between consenting minors as much as it does between consenting adults. So what about this incident made it special enough to ruin a young mans entire future?

Wmc1369, I'd suspect that 1). Boyfriend was not liked by family; 2). Mom walked in at the wrong time 3). The kids taped the act and put it on YouTube; 4). Girl is daughter of local sheriff, deputy, attorney or minister 5). Girl won't have another date until at least 18 and then only after she signs a consent form.

This whole thing reeks of the general behavior exhibited by those with power in dystopian literature.

The referenced book "The Handmaid's Tale" is one of my favorites and it was made into a pretty decent movie as well. To be fair though, a not-insignificant number of my friends didn't agree and found it too disturbing.

I've not read it but I came across it while cruising the internet one night; I may pick it up though it sounds like a good read.

Then why doesn't the government just pass an Act banning sex? It's the same thing.

Crap, better not give them any ideas...

Rather than ban it, most likely they're trying to figure out how to tax it.

What is a bit scary is that could happen to anyone. Hopefully there is a statute of limitations on old highschool bjs.
