Isn't it the heterosexuals who are insisting that they be the only ones allowed legal marriage? Aren't heterosexuals the ones who insist that sex acts they practice should be grounds for arrest when committed by same-sex couples? Aren't conservative Christians the ones who insist their religion should be embraced by the government but scream bloody murder when a non-Christian religious group asks for the same treatment?

And why aren't high schools rounding up and arresting all the senior boys who are dating freshman girls?

They are only charging her for acts committed after she turned 18, when she was 17, they were BOTH breaking the law by having sex with someone under 18.
They both knew what they were doing and they knew they were breaking the law. They should both be punished for the crime. It takes two to make it happen.

Christians are hipacrits. They constantly judge people and act like they are better than everyone else. Catholics are Christians and there priest are well known for being child molesters. The pope before the current pope was a former nazi he worked for hitler. Christians are hippacrits,stuck up, liars, cheats, killers, sinners and pedophiles plus some are gay or bi so they are no better than anyone else.

I agree. This is about an adult having sex with a child, who because of her age, legally cannot give her consent.

Some are arrested, if the parents of those freshman girls complain or they get the girl pregnant. And in states where there are no "Romeo and Juliet" laws, some of those boys end up on the child sex offender databases for life.

That's been talked about (and complained about) for a great many years. The only reason this case gets in the news is because they are both girls.

But in the eyes of the law, it's the same thing.

It has nothing to do with being gay, it's all about being 18 and having sex with a 14.......and that's against the law.

So I'll ask again -- why aren't all the high school seniors who are dating freshmen being rounded up and tossed in jail? It happens all the time in every high school.

<quoted text>You stupid Fagg@t. There's very few seniors dating 14 yr olds, dumb a.ss. They would be a laughing stock. They would be made fun of. But if by some chance they would, it's not a crime to date anyone, but it is a crime to have sex with a 14 yr old. Those crimes are never investigated unless a parent press charges on the older person. Then they have to have proof they had sex. Maybe it's the Ho:mos that's the ones seeking younger partners. But if they do and they have sex and they get caught, then they must face the consequences. Now quit asking the same stupid questions.
You're a bigot.

Thought we went all through this last night. Are you senile or something? I'll make this short and sweet. There was an investigation because the parents pressed charges. Not that they are obligated to do so, but they did try to put a stop to it. Didn't work. The 18 yr old was warned what could happen if it continued. It didn't stop her. They continued and when she turned 18, they got proof and filed charges.
Hope your memory doesn't fail you again.

the reason the parents didn't stop it earlier is bvecause they didn't know that it was more than friends. and the victim ran away and had otter behavier that there was a problem.

Dating and having sex are two different things.

This could have happened because it was a guy with tattoos or a guy who's father was disliked by her parents or because the girls parents strongly disapprove of premarital sex. It's not about being lesbians. This 18 year old girls parents should have spent more time teaching her the law and they could spend less time being outraged now.
That's right!

Stop listening to the media; they're going to go with the the most sensational version of a story most every time without fail. Stop listening to Hunt's parents and attorney; they are going to twist the story and drum up support in any way they can to save her skin and villainize the victim's parents by making this GLBT issue, when nothing presented thus far indicates that it is.
DO listen to the FACTS of this case. The Sheriff's job and that of his deputies is to seek out an document the facts. The facts do not indicate ANY sort of bias against Hunt. They DO indicate, however, that she has committed felonious crimes to which she refuses to take ownership. This can tend to indicate deeper psychological issues within her and give further rise to the concern that se may actually be a sexual predator, and not merely a lesbian WOMAN involved in a sexual relationship with a lesbian GIRL. Sexual orientation has no bearing here, but AGE certainly does... it is the crux of the matter, not the other.

9 months probation is all the perp received who violently raped me.

To me this whole case is an obvious abuse of power. Nothing in this case warrants the severity in which they are prosecuting this teen.
