Florida has a "Romeo and Juliet" law that specifically covers an 18 year old dating a 15 year old. Why is this even being pursued by the legal authorities at all?
The Romeo and Juliet law only mitigates the level of punishment and does not decriminalize the act.

This is a ludicrous application of the law. It is happening only because the parents of the younger girl object to the relationship and the suggestrion that their daughter might be, gasp, gay. The two were legally involved until one suddenly turned a year older. Then the parents jumped. If the younger girl was old enough to decide to become involved with the older girl when the older one was 17, why is she now too young to make that decision after her girlfriend turned 18. This is so stupid it makes my teeth itch. But it is just what I expect out of Florida, a state that has made a virtue of being the source of some of the ugliest and most stupid stories of the the last two decades. And this sheriff fits into this very nicely.
Wrong! Kaitlyn Hunt was 18 when the school year started and the relationship didn't start until after the school year began.

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.
Although we don't always agree on gay issues, I will give you credit for being objective. I can't disagree with anything posted here.

Absolutely wrong! Christian parents do not condone premarital sex, gay or otherwise and there is no proof these parents are practicing Christians.

Perhaps my view is different than someone who does not have kids.

In the life of a child or even adolescent, 3-4 years is a huge age gap, in maturity and the ability to think ahead and make healthy decisions. As we age, that sort of age gap means less and less, and I think many adults on this forum forget that.

If an 18 yr old was trying to date my 14 year old, boy or girl, I would have issues. If they did not follow my polite suggestion to move on and behave responsibly, then THEY would have the issues - with me.

But I'm sure that my experience as a parent plays strongly into my feelings on the matter.

That said, I'm also for a common sense approach, which I believe was offered to and refused by the older girl. I'm not for registering kids in these situations as sex offenders or jailing them, unless there is a VERY VERY compelling reason.

But the older girl seems to have decided that she knew best, and ignored common sense and the minor child's parents who confronted her.

I wonder where the older girl's parents were in all of this? Part of raising a kid is warning them of the consequences of their actions. And her actions had terrible consequences for her.

A law which allows a 23 year-old to have sex with a 16 year-old, who cannot otherwise legally consent to sex, but criminalizes a high school senior for having sex with a freshman, once the senior turns 18, seems to be more than a bit flawed in its reasoning.
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.
This reminds me of the story of two 14 year old gay boys who video taped themselves having sex together. Of course one of their brothers got hold of the tape and took it to school. Of course! They were both charged with making and possession of child porno and now must register as sex offenders.

My son's friend was in a similar situation. He was 16 when he met his 14 year old wife to be. The day he turned 18 he was arrested for having sex with an underage girl, his future wife. Today they are happily married with 3 children but Child Protective Services are involved in their lives because he has to register as a sex offender for having per-marital sex with his future wife.

Nicely said. And exactly right.

JESUS: Luke 19:27, "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.'"

JESUS: Luke 14:26, "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters yes, even his own life he cannot be my disciple."

Kansas is part of the home of the story of the 19 year-old from Nebraska, who married his then 14 year old girlfriend from Kansas. At the time, Kansas technically had no minimum age for marriage and all that was required was parental consent, which surprisingly enough, she had it. All perfectly legal until the groom took his bride back home a short time later, to a state which don't countenance such goings on. Nebraska invalidated his marriage and sent his butt to jail for consummating with his a whole lot younger than Nebraska will allow you to get away having sex with now former bride.

Do live in their home? Are you part of their family?? Are you in the minds of the victim's parents???

I thought not. You ARE that which you so despise, BIGOT. You should have more accurately stated, "never overlook the hate of a Bigot." No one would no better than YOU.
