KY: Court rules in underage sex case involving teens

FRANKFORT, Ky. — After more than a year as a couple, a 15-year-old boy and his 13-year-old girlfriend had sex on two occasions at her Kentucky home. When her parents found out, the boy was charged with a felony. The girl avoided any charges.

The case reached the Kentucky Supreme Court, and some judges said they were troubled by the “selective prosecution.” Citing Shakespeare, one justice said: “None of us would fault Romeo more than Juliet.” Full Article

I would like to see some of this logic here in California. I had a consensual relationship with a 15 yo girl when I was 19, and a 16/17 yo when I was 20. I originally got arrested for domestic violence with the 17 yo a week before she turned 18. Then 4 months after that they brought in charges for 261.5, 288ab1, 286b1 for both girls. So the parents didn’t have an issue until after the police came to them

Everything about charging or convicting kids of this age range is just wrong.

When a person hits the age of puberty and you find yourself with erections in the morning and in your school classrooms, the desire to learn more and experiment with the same/opposite sex is simply a realty. Especially with the access to the Internet information the kids have today.

I’m going to bet nearly all of us had some sort of sexual experimentation events with a friend, relative or classmate in our early formative years…

If this has ever happened…then all children under 18 years should be placed in jail. Do their probation and then join the nearest SOR.

When you were 12 years old, did anyone ever say to you, “don’t even think about it or you could go to prison and the police will take you away from your home”. It’s just sad to see what this country is doing to everyone involved.

I could go on, but it is all just so sad.
