Yup....exactly my point....

These kids were stupid and in need of some serious adult supervision especially the girl who for some reason allowed herself to have such a low opinion of herself she would do what she did

But to label these kids sex offenders is going to harm them for life for something they did when they were years away from being an adult....

It does harm them for life and essentially puts them on state welfare if their parents (or someone) won't support them. I know of one case like this through a friend and the 15 yr old girl looked much older and convinced the dumb guy she was of age. He is now almost 30 has never had a job, never had a driver's license and is still on probation. He could have gotten out of the program years ago ... if only he had about $40k to grease the legal wheels.

It's just another way for the Progessives to create more dependents on the state.

It’s a terrible misuse of the whole concept of “sex offender”. The sex offender registry should only be about predators, not some kids out being stupid.

The sex offender registry itself has enough problems. There is something wrong when dangerous predators have to be released from custody... And everybody knows they’re still dangerous but the law has no mechanism to cope with them. People known to still be dangerous shouldn’t be let out into the world. We just don’t yet know how to deal with them. They can’t be fixed. But we can’t make sex offenses capital crimes either— because if we did then there’s no reason for them to ever leave another victim alive.

I don’t know the answer.
