    These Texans and their cattle prods boy, whoo. That is some crazy scary stuff we’re dealing with folks. 15 year olds. Legal in France and most of the developed world to have sex with as well. This right here is why America is coming to be viewed as a declining power.

      15 is the age of consent in France, but not here.
      Still, electric shock!?!?!?
      Is this Judge going to be prosecuted for something?

    • Grow up, America!

      Yup. I got 4 years for 15 years ….. and a lifetime on the Registry…. b/c it upset Mommy and Daddy. (And 15 was completely legal in several States at the time.)
      *bitter and always angry*

    This was all done because the judge himself is pretty damn close to perfect.

    Considering that the judge was found of wrong doing, will there be a recall effort like for Aaron Persky? In fact, in this case, I’d think it would actually be his fellow judges and lawyers who’d go after him for this. I certainly hope he isn’t just going to walk away from this like nothing.
