Ahhh....you like Wiki? This came from the same article that you quoted:As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia (or paedophilia) is defined as a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 or older) typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally age 13 years or younger, though onset of puberty may vary). Having said that, I do not defend his actions nor does he I have not once done so. I do defend him and will continue to do so especially from the lies and assumptions. Again, yes he does assume responsibility.
"In law enforcement, the term "pedophile" is generally used to describe those accused or convicted of child sexual abuse under sociolegal definitions of child (including both prepubescent children and adolescents younger than the local age of consent); however, not all child sexual offenders are pedophiles and not all pedophiles engage in sexual abuse of children. Law enforcement and legal professionals have begun to use the term predatory pedophile, a phrase coined by children's attorney Andrew Vachss, to refer specifically to pedophiles who engage in sexual activity with minors. The term emphasizes that child sexual abuse consists of conduct chosen by the perpetrator.[121
So let me rephrase it...Karl is a "predatory pedophile". That is the term that the "Po Po" use to describe Karl. He "chose" to attempt predatory sexual contact with what he thought was a 16 year old girl. If he accepts responsibility as you state, I expect to see a guilty plea show up on county record soon or when the trial starts....right? If so, I will apologize. If not, he is still a worm
