Men have no rights when it comes to rape and statutory rape.
He had sex with a girl (not sure if she was underage...he was 16 or 17 I think). Her mother found out that she had sex and the girl cried rape. My friend went to jail for rape for a few years for having consentual sex, but no one would listen to his side of the story. It's sickening how no one will listen to the man.
and every single time they go by what she says).
Can anyone see if this boy had a clean file on him before this happened?
NYGDAN your telling me he was not a minor he was 17 thats a minor
what are you saying if he had sex with a20 year old whos the minor...him
if he has to go to jail she should also go under your premise
"It's the law" is an idiotic response.
If I recall correctly, that is how this enitre case came to be.
I have not read anywhere that any punishment was given to the girls, including the one who made the false claim of rape.
I'm with Nygdan on this one. Though I disagree with the law, it is the law.
You get pulled over for doing 75 in a 50, you're at fault. And you can't just say "officer, look at everyone else speeding."
No, the age of consent in georgia at the time was 17. He was not a minor.
In the eyes of the law, a juvenile or a minor, is any person under the legal adult age. This age varies from state to state, but in most states, the District of Columbia, and in all Federal Districts, any person age 18 or younger is considered a juvenile. In several states, such as New York, Connecticut, and North Carolina, a juvenile is age 16 or less, and in Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin, a juvenile is age 17 or less. Wyoming is the only state that has established the age of juveniles to be 19 or younger (Whitehead & Lab, 1999).

Before anyone beats on me for being a fuddy-duddy, or an old fart ... I'm not for that particular law (glad it's changed now), and if you don't like a law then you need to do one of two things, either campaign to get the law changed (a little late for this young man), or be very circumspect in that which you do, and how you do it, that may be illegal, while you are doing it.
Michelle had arrived at the party tipsy; she’d been drinking Hennessy cognac that afternoon even before the party began. She voluntarily continued to drink and smoke with them. She had packed a bag, obviously with the intention of spending the night. She had also reportedly flirted relentlessly with the guys, including her old high school track buddy Genarlow. And more importantly, even Michelle’s own girlfriend, Natasha*, who’d also been at the party, told investigators that she had never heard Michelle say “no” to the guys.
What false claim? The jury didn't find him guilty of rape. Are you saying that anytime a rape victim's rapist isn't found guilty, that the victim should be charged????

Here is the report from CNN in 2004.
Turns out the guy was actually 18 when it happened.
He was a black succesful footbal player, he had sex with a white girl from his highschool.
Playing devils advocate here "Could the black guy white girl thing be an issue here, it's certainly not unheard of"
