MI: Young Man Arrested for Underage Sex Was Re-Arrested for Sharing a Pizza with a 17-Year-Old

[Hit & Run blog at Reason.com]

____________, the young man from Elkhart, Indiana, whose harsh punishment for consensual sex with an underage teenager he wrongly believed was 17 made headlines around the country in 2015, has been arrested for violating his probation.

What, exactly, did he do? He stopped by for dinner at his parents’ home. His younger brother was present, and incidentally, so was the brother’s friend. The brother thought this friend was 19 years old, but he turned out to be just 17. _______, unfortunately, is not allowed to have contact with anybody under the age of 18, except his own siblings.

There was one other thing. _______, works on the tech team at his local church. Recently, a 17-year-old girl joined the church staff as an intern. While _______, has never met or spoken with her, the fact that they volunteer on separate teams at the church is a violation of his probation, according to officials who issued a warrant for his arrest last week.

    This and countless other cases just like it PROVE that there is extra motivation to see a RSO fail as a continued punishment. Clearly the more regulations the more difficult it is to exist. You have to have a job to pay for housing. The housing often can not be located where there are actual jobs…we are setup to FAIL from the start!

    Child safety is NOT the goal. The boogeyman effect is what LE and gov want. Every time they violate a sex offender on probation they “prove” just how sex offenders can’t stay out of trouble. This helps keep the fear factor up since they put that in BIG HEADLINE but they don’t mention the 99% who are trying to peacefully exist and just get by. Sensationalize much…

    Can you believe we live in a country like this? Absolutely disgusting that any thinking-human-being would give this kid so many problems. Unfortunately, he was given a polygraph, otherwise this kid should have never told this Nazi regime about anything that may have violated his probation. People are supposed to be honest?? Honesty will land you in jail, remember that. This system doesn’t work on honesty or ‘doing good’. To hell with the people that support this system and work for it. If they don’t have enough brains to use their own discretion and not report someone who’s not acting in a dangerous way, then they don’t deserve any honesty. I love how these ‘govnt workers’ think they’re doing God’s work and being one of the ‘good guys’. What a joke. They are the equivalent of Hitler’s soldiers. This kid is doing everything right, and these low-life Snitches are destroying his life because they aren’t capable of using their own damn brains to comprehend the fact that reporting him will cause more damage than any ‘good’. Idiots. Idiots everywhere.

    The crazy probation rules are starting to sound like the “small print” in pharmaceutical commercials:
    “Please do not use Pro-bation where children are present, reside currently, or may reside at some time in the future. Do not use this Pro-bation if you currently have children or were ever once a child yourself. Consult with your defense attorney before using Pro-bation as serious – even life-threatening – side effects may occur.”
    That poor kid. 😔

  5. Yeah right

    I would think the charges will be reduced or dropped. The Judges here in NY at least know that these probation “violations” are unsustainable. Maybe they’ll make an example out of him to send a message to the rest of us, who knows Probation to the rescue!!
