  •  I remember hearing about a case in GA (0+ / 0-)

    where a woman ended up on the sex offender registry after being forced to give an older minor a blowjob when she was in high school.

    She was having a hell of time accessing higher ed after the latest registry changes and restrictions because 'there might be 17-year-olds' on the campuses.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

      "I remember hearing about ..." is a rather low standard for asserting systemic corruption, doncha think?

        seeing articles online charting out the age ranges of people on the registry. Can't find them now, and the Google searches that might find them are not word combinations I want to search for, but part of the worries about that wave of registrant restrictions was that there was a HUGE spike of 14- and 15-year-olds in the registry lists.

        There have been at least some cases where two kids had sex and were BOTH brought up on statutory rape charges.

        The woman I wrote about in my original comment was the focus of at least one article in Creative Loafing.

        And then there were the cases of teenage girls being harassed into sexting and then charged with child porn distribution a few years ago. Even when it was bathing suit photos that would have been completely legal if taken standing on a beach.

        (And just so you know, I changed my sig to this just after the earthquake happened. And considering the ongoing issues with the damaged nuclear plant and the region affected by it, the sentiment intended still stands.)

        Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
