Here's a good article on the subject--definitely worth a read:

In all honesty, I could care less...the young man should not be having sex with 11 year olds, he should not be charged as a sex offender but we all need to remember who posted this thread...the one who believes there should be NO AGE OF CONSENT This seems a bit self serving to post this article to a thread, don't ya' think?

True. But the statutory rape laws are designed to keep you, killer, from having sex with juveniles, which seems to be your big honking fetish. Given your past posts, I'm fairly certain you're sitting in the BarcaLounger in your mother's basement, watching old Olsen twins tapes and fantasizing. Heck, why didn't you pick HumbertHumbert as your handle instead?

Laws on this very drastically state to state and I have no clue what they're like in MA.

That said, juveniles who commit sex offenses ARE required to register as sex offenders. They sometimes have somewhat less requirements/shorter periods than adults...but they're still on the registry....and it they're on it well past the age of 18 or 21.
Link please...I have worked in law enforcement and would like to see what you are referring to. Thanks!

Yep. Still a disturbing article, but I agree with you 100% on the motivation.

Oh yes, a very disturbing article and disturbing that the double standard exists at all! Hopefully the state will rethink it's stance on the issue.

The motivation of Killer is quite suspect

rape is a crime. no matter who did it. 11 year old girls have been violated.
i know i know the welfare department case loads are full of 11 year old mothers, but that is the law. without law and order we are nothing but crocodiles.

In the State of California, children can and are charged with sex crimes and are required to and do register as sex offenders for the rest of their lives. I don't think a 14 year old should be allowed to molest children simply because he is a child himself.

Was this a crime because he pressured them into it?? Or is there a law I don't know about here? I thought the laws were to prevent adults from abusing kids.

Thank you...in many states a child convicted of a sex crime is registered for 10 years and if they do not reoffend the juvenile sex offenders record is exspunged.

This case is very sad and I believe the charges against the boy should be dropped OR all parties should be charged.
