The age of consent in Texas is 17, so this is a crime in Texas. It is not a crime in Georgia, where Rob Lowe was. We have these things called states here, which have their own laws.

For future reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America

That was my reaction, too. That we treat 16 year olds like children (heck, we treat 26 year olds like children) is a problem.

That is not to be taken as approval for fifty-year olds to take advantage of young people, but to call the alleged victim a "child" is P.C. overkill.

I was abused by a 16-year-old "child" 35 years ago, when I was 25.

I think she should go turn herself in.

Exactly. Whatever a 16-year-old is (and I speak as the father of a female of that species), it is NOT a “child.” It may not even be human. It MAY not even be a mammal ...
