sex offense idiocy

2006-12-10 02:34:25.344523+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Teen, both a perpetrator and victim of sex offense, presents legal puzzle:

Utah Supreme Court justices acknowledged Tuesday that they were struggling to wrap their minds around the concept that a 13-year-old Ogden girl could be both an offender and a victim for the same act - in this case, having consensual sex with her 12-year-old boyfriend.

As the SE entry which brought this to my attention said:

Anyone taking bets on how long before some kid gets put on the sex offender registry when he's caught touching himself?

From further down that thread, the insightful note by "headlessfriar" that:

I just realized that each kid here had boffed an adult (whatever age of consent for Utah is), then the children would be in no legal trouble whatsover. Obviously, the adults would be jailed for sex crimes, but this means that Utah prefers that for a child, if they are to have sex at all, it better be with a pedophile instead of a peer.

Also from that thread: 4 -year-old Accused of Improperly Touching Teacher:

BELLMEAD- A four-year-old hugged his teachers aide and was put into in-school suspension, according to the father. But La Vega school administrators have a different story.

Damarcus Blackwell's four-year-old son was lining-up to get on the bus after school last month, when he was accused of rubbing his face in the chest of a female employee.
