Okay, I agree with Anti-Tyrant.
I did have a whole post written but my connection died along with the post.
Okay, I have just re read all of the information and something which the Orange County state attorney's office said made me so mad it has made me
think about how it is somewhat different in the UK.
""Orange County authorities charged the 23-year-old man Crystal accused of assaulting her with lewd or lascivious battery. According to court
documents, Crystal and the man both said they had an ongoing sexual relationship.
The prosecutor, who declined to comment to CNN, concluded that the teen and the 23-year-old had consensual sex, according to the case file.
Florida law states that a 15-year-old cannot give consent to sex. And though Crystal was 15 at the time of the alleged forced encounter, the
prosecutor wrote that the case would not be prosecuted because Crystal was "a mere 1 month away" from turning 16, when it would be "legal to give
consent," according to documents".
She is 15 for goodness sake. A child, that is 8 years difference between them... he could have waited. They have stated any child male or female under
the age of 16 cannot give consent to having sex. They are hypocrites, and it makes me sick... 15 years ago she was born not 16 years, regardless of
one day or one hundred days she was under age and he should be charged.
I am only 20 years old and if and when I have children I would cut their legs off either my son or daughter for having sex before 16. Well I would
make it 40...
I understand situations were the "child" is wanting a sexual relationship, but he should have said no and waited for her to be at least the law
Well saying this, there are more teenagers pregnancy of girls below 16. I does make me sick to my stomach as at 15 I watching Aladdin before school,
went to school, come home - got changed and was outside up in trees playing man hurt until 20:00 and then home to bed. Never did sex ever cross my
mind. But this world is ever changing and unfortunately for the bad.
I hope someone does listen to the poor girl. Because regardless of her allowing him to sleep with her before, she is a child a baby a little girl.
A lot of things have peeved me before, but if they allow him to get away with sleeping with her and maybe even raping her (when she said no)... You
are allowing someone to sleep with a child.. that's what gets me... they are allowing him to go away and maybe get a 14 year old girlfriend and do
the same again, knowing he can get away with it. Or maybe he did like - love her and she is trying to get back at him.
Regardless, an adult man has had sex repeatedly with a child.
That's the story. Start to finish.
