Making criminals out of children for consensual sexual activity is evil.

Then they are placed in institutions where real sexual abuse (as opposed to consensual sex) is common. How ironic.

And don't think that real abuse is limited to correctional staff or the State of Texas.

The adults in our society insist that they have sexual freedom for themselves. Popular culture is saturated with sexuality. Why would anyone think that teenagers would want anything less? The kids are voting for it and not with their feet.

Honor student, scouted for sports scholarships, and 1 party him at 18 girlfriend at 17 and he gets 10 years for consensual because of some law in his state. It's amazingly ironic I agree. So get the word out-- teens do not have sex what so ever you can be convicted of a crime?
Stuff like that is ridiculous....

Utah has a truly sad example of some of the stupid sex laws on the books right now...

If I remember the case correctly a 14 year old girl slept with a 13 year old boy and became pregnant. In Utah it is illegal for anyone under the age of 16 to consent to sex so you are guilty of a crime if you have sex with someone under that age. However, 15 (and maybe 16) year olds get the charges reduced.

What's strange about this? Each of the two involved were charged with a sex crime. However, they were also BOTH victims of a sex crime at the same time by Utah law. How exactly is someone the perpetrator and the victim of the same crime?

Here's my question... In Utah can you steal money from yourself and if so would you drop the charges???

Consent in WI is 18. No one under the age of 18 can consent to sex/sexual contact.

If two 15 year olds have contact they both violated the law, both are victims and both are suspects who potentially are referred to social services. If a 17 year old has sex with a 16 year old, the 17 year old could be charged as an adult, yet the 16 year old also violated the law by having contact with someone under the age of 18.

The law is classified by age - degrees, which sexual contact with a person under the age of 13 is a B felony, sexual contact with a person under the age of 16 is BC felony class, on up is an A misdemeanor.

So in saying teens, don't have sex....don't have sex.
