    I would have to see this to believe that there is not more to it than what is implied here. As weird as a lot of judicial thinking is, it is difficult to imagine that the  actual facts are what would normally come to mind when we hear the words that the 3 year "initiated the contact", which most people would assume meant she approached the adult with the intent of inducing sexual relations and that was the end of it and was the central reason for the exoneration. For instance, if it were taken from some blog like World Net Daily who often present quotes out of context to stoke the outrage of their audience, I would have no trouble believing that the three words cited might easily be only a small part of a much more detailed and inclusive explanation of the decision.

    When we hear things as seemingly egregious as this there is almost always more to the story that makes it much more palatable if not outright reasonable. I am not taking a side here, only saying that for me to accept this at face value I would need to see a reliable source that gives enough information so a thorough follow-up could be made.
