    Would this have been this controversial/famous if the 18 year-old was a male I wonder.

    Feel sorry for her though.

    The saddest thing about this is it would have been perfectly legal in nearby Louisiana, but it's a serious crime in Florida. Weird, weird place, Florida...

    Serious crime anywhere bub, whether state says so or not, state's not the final word you know.

    This is my point entirely.. I think the family feels over-entitled. No one wants their child to be a registered sex offender, but I think they're playing the same-sex card up a bit too much in this situation. I think the court was more than fair with the plea bargain.. they really should have taken it.

    The Supreme court could take it on if they wanted to.. but I seriously doubt this case will make it that far. They have way higher stakes in their ball park right now.

    I wouldnt be surprised it goes that far you know if the gay card's been played.

    No but the possibility of jail still would have been very real. My son's friend went to jail for this very same thing (18 y.o having sex w/ 14 y.o). He says the girl lied about her age but the charges stuck. He had to serve around 14 months(?) or so but he was able to escape having to register as a sex offender in the state. It happens a lot there...a whole lot.

    Edit: dammit, @Mane I didn't see your post above! Wow...12?

    I don't think that's what Lark was getting at.
