    But the law is specific. If it was an 18 year old boy and a 15 year old girl then people would be screaming for prosecution.

    "Look here," he was yelling. "Look here, the bunglers—"

      I don't think people would be "screaming for prosecution" in a case involving a 15 year old girl and 18 year old boy. Most of the boyfriends I had in high school were two years older, some were three years older. And that was true of many if not most of my friends.
      It is true that most people here have passionate objections to genuinely predatory behavior involving minors. But a three year age differential does not suggest predatory behavior to me, and I doubt it does to most people.
