MI: Zachery Anderson denied termination of probation

For someone who probably should not have been prosecuted in the first place, Zach Anderson is certainly continuing to get a raw deal from the system.

Now 22, when Zach was 19 he had sex with someone he met on line who claimed she was 17. Turns out she was only 14. Even though she admitted to lying about her age, Zach was sentenced to jail time, probation and 25 years on Michigan’s sex offender registry. Full Article

    Interesting how everyone got in an outrage over this kid. My case was almost identical but they had no worries putting me on the registry for 25 years then changing it to life. Damn must be good to be a white kid. Lol. At least he got a second chance.

    The system is just so screwed up here. I grew up in Europe where you can’t apply for a DL until you are 18. I, personally, and I am sure so many others did not get their license until their late 20s because we have such a good public transportation system that it is not essential to drive if you don’t have the money to obtain your license ( it costs like $2000 ) or you just don’t feel the need. So, in my case, there was no ID that showed how old I was. So, what are guys in Europe supposed to do before getting involved with a girl who claims she is 17 or 18, or whatever age? Request to see her birth certificate (that surely nobody has readily handy)? Ridiculous! If a girl lies about her age, how is anybody supposed to know her real age? Girls over here look like they are in their 30s. I personally can’t tell anyone’s age anymore….you?

      I get what you mean. It’s also why so many underage get into bars. Where I’m at now it screws me up when I walk past the bars because everyone working there looks like they are just getting into highschool.

      But here at least you don’t have all the issues since people won’t really lie about how old they are or lie much about anything since its illegal to cheat others. The underage ones who would get you caught up are more into crystal and grass anyway so unless youre doing to do other illegal things there isnt much of a risk.

    If his conviction was vacated, what the hell is he doing still on probation??? Anyone questioning a corrupt legal system needs look no further than this case!

    If he was sentenced under HYTA then he has to complete probation fIrst. If not all the charges come back and stick with a vengeance.

    HYTA (Holmes youthful trainee act) is for youths under 21 who may have a bright future ahead of them where they can vacate their first crime ever as long as its not murder. It’s mostly only offered to rich white kids who have good lawyers.
