    read this

    I really dont see the wrong doing in this instance. He was 18 & the girl was 15. She never tried to even get away. I dunno whatto believe here.

    i hate that fucking law. 18 to be an adult...i mean that's fine for smoking and 21 for drinking, but 18 to have sex with who ever you desire? theirs a difference between rape and just casual sex...A REAL BIG DIFFERENCE. it's not force, and if it was he deserves it. honestly it's so stupid and nieve for them to even think of sexual acts by age. that's like saying only legal adults can get rubbers.

    holy jeebus. what a world we live in.

    Age of consent laws are obviously necessary but making it so straight forward and flat is ridiculous. Technically while my gf was 18 for the month that I was still 17 and we had sex it was illegal. I feel so violated! :rolleyes:

    okay now- you failed to make yourself clear on this- what exactly do you deem an appropiate age then? I mean age of consent laws are there for reasons- however I am merely disagreeing with this one case due to the fact that a 15 year old girl & an 18 yearold guy isnt that strange.

    This is rediculous. Doesn't the NAACP realize that statitory rape is the same for all races? Even IF he was targeted (which I think is rediculous), what he did was wrong and the NAACP seems to think that all that matters is his race and not what he did.

    exactly....when they made that law they were probably thinking around the lines of an old fart and some crazy preteen slut. i seriously think they abuse that.

    The strange thing i find about this is that if it was a 16 year old girl and a 19 year old guy, no one would care, but when she's 15 and he's 18, they now add on the molestation charge even though the difference in age is the exact same.

    In New Jersey, where I live, the consent law states that relations between 18 and 16 year olds are okay, 19 and 17 okay, and anything beyond that.

    So he deserves to be found guilty on the statutory rape charge.

    The others I'm not too sure about, because the story may be skewed in some way, by a false testimony by the girl, in an attempt to save face... but if what she says is true, he should serve the 10 years he was given.

    What sickens me the most, is the pulling of the "Race Card".

    "It's because I'm black," is such bullshit. Black people, and I'm not being racist, use the color of their skin as an advantage, which is descrimination and racism. It's sickening.

      Hell no. Driving varies by state but generally its 16 to start learning and no place is more than 18 to be driving by yourself. Everything is 18 here except drinking which is 21. :rolleyes:

      Its not even so much that. If you arent in the military that arguement is useless. But EVERYTHING is 18. You can fucking VOTE but you cant drink. its insane. And the argument for safety is BS because they certainly arent stopping me from smoking.

      Bergs, think of it this way though. At 18, most kids are starting college. Alchohol can really screw up a persons life if abused and the start of college really isn't a good time to risk that. At 21, though, people are usually more mature and pretty much know what it is they want to do with their life. By that time, the average person wouldn't want to risk that.

      I don't really have an opinion one way or another. Just trying to be objective.

      1) Why on Earth is that the government's business?
      2) Its not stopping me from drinking as much as I want, I'll just get in trouble if caught now.
      3) Cigarettes dont fuck up people's lives?

      I'm 18 and I'm doing everything legally in my country. Fuck waiting till 21, that's jsut stupid.

      In England:

      Aged 16: Smoke, have sex, Drive a ped :p

      Aged 18: Drink alcahol & Get into all pubs and bars, buy porn, go to strip bars.

      Aged 21: The odd clubs in London you can now get into.
      Haha, Emphasise Black.

      I really don't know what the appropriate age is, I just know that I have heard and seen instances where Daddy's little girl likes it hard and often, than she get's caught and the next thing you know.. bam.. there's some poor guy being dragged into court for bonin a girl 3 years younger than him who has slept with half the damn neighborhood.. I know these rules are put in place for a reason but in some instances it is hardly fair.

      Texas is flexible. Its you cant have sex with someone under the age of 17 unless you are within about 2 years - or a judge is not retarded and can recognise the difference between rape, consensual sex, and manipulative "consensual" sex.
