    I feel for those who are truly young lovers and get caught up in this kind of law. I was 15 and involved with an 18 year old, and was not raped in any sense of the word. These kind of situations need to be looked at individually IMO, a black or white law is not going to bring true justice.

    But a 49 yr old man and a 14 yr old girl is another story. And the fact he AGREED to the deal and now is off scott free despite not following his part of the deal is not justice.
