Exactly so. There is the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. The latter is frequently ignored.

the kid sounds pretty twisted in the head to me. It’s best someone is keeping an eye on him

actual violent sexual predators will simply fall through the cracks, disappearing amongst the multitude of names.

You don't suppose that might be the goal?

This case is exactly why we have judges instead of computers to render justice. It requires discretion.

The judges don't have discretion anymore thanks to the knee-jerk laws passed by yahoos. The judge said as much here. What discretion is left belongs to the fascist prosecutor. I'm sure he'll tout this as a great victory for "the children"!

I agree this is not horseplay. Its obscene and unacceptable. For a kid to think this is fine, as an adult would be doing worse things...

Disgusting. But, this is what goes on in gym class, summer camp, college hazing, .... and God knows what else in Basic Training. It's awful. But it is not a sex crime!!!!!!!

The big game when I was in High School was to sneak up behind someone in gym class and pull their shorts to their ankles.

Probably a crime against nature now.

Your gym classes were sure a lot different than mine...my boys went to summer camp one year, it didn't happen to them. Had 2 son's and 1 grandson in the military, don't think it happens there. Unless the kid who got sat on agree’s with it, its an assault with sexual overtones....IE: genitalia was involved, be in frontal or just putting you butt on someone else's face, permanently expelled from school would be good, but that's not allowed. So we are left with what is allowed....I wouldn't want my son's or daughter to be the one being assaulted...

How about the old fashion reform school for delinquents...that kid is not going to turn into an angel with age....

I added NJ to the topics.. this was on the local news all day...sounded like a childhood prank and nothing more.

Planting your ass on somebody’s face is grounds for an ass kicking. >>

that's what I thought. Perhaps a caning as they do in Singapore, that would have taught them a lesson, labeling them a sex offender is extreme... sounds like those idiotic zero-tolerance policies used in the schools.
