    statutory rape statutes is in many states they will arrest a minor boy, of say, 12 years old, for having sex with his girlfriend of 14....because SHE IS A MINOR CHILD (never mind his own age)!!

    •  Got an example of that? (5+ / 0-)

      I'd be interested in knowing of one case anywhere in the country where a minor has been charged with statutory rape for sex with another minor.

        ...but my brain is wracked (racked?) by several stories that I will NEVER forget, from a couple of counties in the south.  I don't know if convictions were obtained or how far the cases got, but I definitely remember several underage boys charged with (legitimate?) statutory rape, because they had sex with their underage girlfriends, who were actually older than they were!

        (I do realize in most sane areas, the law applies to an adult/child encounter).

      •  I remember hearing about a case in GA (0+ / 0-)

        where a woman ended up on the sex offender registry after being forced to give an older minor a blowjob when she was in high school.

        She was having a hell of time accessing higher ed after the latest registry changes and restrictions because 'there might be 17-year-olds' on the campuses.

          "I remember hearing about ..." is a rather low standard for asserting systemic corruption, doncha think?

            seeing articles online charting out the age ranges of people on the registry. Can't find them now, and the Google searches that might find them are not word combinations I want to search for, but part of the worries about that wave of registrant restrictions was that there was a HUGE spike of 14- and 15-year-olds in the registry lists.

            There have been at least some cases where two kids had sex and were BOTH brought up on statutory rape charges.

            The woman I wrote about in my original comment was the focus of at least one article in Creative Loafing.

            And then there were the cases of teenage girls being harassed into sexting and then charged with child porn distribution a few years ago. Even when it was bathing suit photos that would have been completely legal if taken standing on a beach.

            (And just so you know, I changed my sig to this just after the earthquake happened. And considering the ongoing issues with the damaged nuclear plant and the region affected by it, the sentiment intended still stands.)

            Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

      a 13 yo girl was selling herself , she was caught ,
      they asked her why , she said she enjoyed sex and liked getting paid , she said some guys had no clue but some of them were very good . She was arrested but the guys were not . Makes your head spin even more ?
