a teenager sentenced to two life sentences for forcing another teen to perform oral sex.and the judge can’t think of a more heinous crime. wtffff is wrong with these people.give the kid some therapy or probation but life come on man.

“The judge said he could not “imagine any more a heinous offense than what you have committed.”

I don’t know…..maybe murder, hacking a couple of limbs off, blinding the kid by throwing acid in his eyes, etc. etc.

That is disgusting. So they were essentially showing the teenage child pornography. Why don’t they use that device on whomever is administering the test to make sure he isn’t aroused by it? After all, shouldn’t we make sure that those tasked with guarding the hen house don’t develop a taste for chicken?

Just an FYI….. this Virginian Pilot article is from 2007 and the ruling is from 2006, most of VA’s statutes have become even harsher since then and VA is very much against SODOMY.

The ruling means they need a good reason to put their hands on your pee-pee.
So now they’ll want to insert wires on your Buttocks.

So if I refuse to have a scientist put on the Peter-meter, I can be violated?
