"Leftists" and "Hollywood" aren't the same people necessarily. Hollywooders tend to defend the scum, much to their shame. I have no patience with people who put artistic accomplishment or fame ahead of justice.

Why is it so many of you are defending this or making excuses when no juries do this in any sex cases and young men's lives are constantly ruined by the system for even having girlfriends 2 years older and their moms not liking them or deciding to end it that way? LOok at some central ca counties like yolo, glenn, colusa etc. for examples. The victims histories neevr even come to question and as evidence by cases like this:

even when both want it are over the 14 borderline age and only their parents reported it they still egt screwed with a plea much worst than his (it included his unlawful claim in there and much more jail time for a young man never in trouble):

Please explain why guys like this who doesnt look a day over 18 get f@ked in Amerykkka? btw I talked to him and met him and know the full story before you make any assumptions. Here is an example of a 19 yr old guy who in that same county is doing a year with two cases (one dropped in plea) for a girl two years younger (17 he was 19 now 20) he moved to another state with where they both wanted to get away from her mother:

In the 70s (actually since 60s) the will alone not just physical force made it enough for it to be a rape case and under aged sex was illegal either way so I doubt if he wasnt a celebrity with a lot of contacts and luck (like her damily being afraid of crap in the household coming out) he would have not had a long jail or at least few year prison sentence even back then. More info on laws back then:


Im sure plenty of people not just those with public defenders even then got screwed based on lies like many do today.
