So they were dating legally when she was 17, but once she had a birthday, it's suddenly illegal. That's a rough one to sell.

Why, where a 20 year old could have been drinking for years but it's illegal for a bar to serve him a drink. The next day could be his b'day, and no longer illegal to serve him.

We have 'age appropriate' laws, in case you didn't know. What's your rush for them to disappear because you don't agree with them. Aren't we going down the hell hole fast enough for you?

—>>molesting my minor daughter, I’d press charges against her too.

Damn straight on that. Male or a female. After they are of legal age, it’s their baby but not until not under my roof would I allow my child to be molested.

Guess the gay folks need to learn the term “jailbait” too.

I agree. If this was a boy/girl relationship wouldn’t the 18 y/o be charged? What makes this different?

I live in FL. One of the first things I drilled into my sons heads was once they turned 18 they were NEVER to get in a car or place alone with anyone under that age without another person present.

People may say I am overreacting but SO many times I have seen people persecuted over some sexual claim stemming from this. If more people observed this rule, there would be so much less trouble.

I don’t care whether this girl was a lesbian or not. You never touch a minor. Here in FL they will practically hang you for touching a minor in any way. That includes a gang of kids beating up on yours that you go out to try and stop. (Seen it here)

>> If they actually waited

Did “they” have previous knowledge?

If they actually waited until the girl turned 18 to charge her with anything, then you’re looking at an abuse of power.

You're not Kate turned 18 on 14 August 2012. before she even met the 14½ girl entering Freshman year at Sebastian River High School. Activity occured Nov-Dec 2012. They became aware of it in January. After Police investigated, Katie was arrested in February.

AFTER the younger girl turned 15, the perp's parents launched their "Free Kate" pettion claiming "our sweet Kate in being prosectuted for having a 15 year old girlfriend, Kate was only 17".

Oh yeah, Kate's parents are also linrs.

For the entire period between them meeting and Kate being arrested, the younger girl was 14, and Crazy Eyes was 18, legally adult.

The younger girls mother should have stopped her daughter from dating another girl before it got to them having sex together.

I think the younger girls mother knew they were having sex and could not control her daughter, so she waited until the older girl was 18 and reported it.

I don’t think they knew. A coach (maybe the basketball coach?) discovered what was going on.

It's good that the prosecutor is going to pursue this.

Having said that, the homosexual lobby is going to use this to advance their agenda.

If the 18 year old is found not guilty, they will throw it in everybody's faces ("the right wing homophobic prosecutor was rightly put in his place")

If the 18 year old is found guilty, she will become a "cause celebre" of the left. She will be sympathetically profiled on the tv talk shows (e.g., The View), the story will be reported as eeeeeevvvvviiiiilllll proprietorial over-reach by all the MSM news, and talking heads will champion her as the successor to their current poster-boy "Matthew Shepard" (that homosexual drug pusher who was killed in a drug deal that went bad).

Eventually, many state legislatures and, if Congress goes (D) again -- or if Boehner remains speaker -- Congress will pass a "Kaitlyn's Law" to ensure nobody else is ever "persecuted" like she was, again.

You have got to realize that is the glideslope.

Exactly. If it’s legally fine at one moment, and then a minute later, it’s illegal because someone just TURNED 18, there’s a problem with the law, and it’s application.

If the girl was 18 when the relationship STARTED, that would be, at least legally, an entirely different story. . . but if it started while she was still 17, it’s effectively (although not literally) an ex post facto prosecution. . .

“The younger girl’s parents went to the police after learning from a coach, school employees and students that their daughter was having a relationship, according to a report from the Indian River County Sheriff’s office. The parents’ information led to the investigation.”

That’s because the only people speaking about the case are the perp’s parents, who are liars.

Age of consent in FL appears to be 17, since she was charged w/ lewd behavior w/ a minor aged 12-16.

This one falls pretty neatly into the "battles not worth fighting" category and is the sort of situation where Jesus would have told somebody to go and sin no more.

Jesus would NOT have allowed any sort of a life-wrecking punishment over this one and, apparently, Anonymuos is not going to allow it either. They've threatened to shut this town and school district down and they ARE capable of that.

Yep, male or female. Stay away, or I will make you stay away.

Simple as that.

Who are you to speak for Jesus?

Jesus said to follow the law unless it contradicted God’s law.

4 They say unto him, Master,
this woman was taken in adultery, in
the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded
us, that such should be stoned: but
what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him,
that they might have to accuse him.
But Jesus stooped down, and with his
finger wrote on the ground, as though
he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking
him, he lifted up himself, and said
unto them, He that is without sin
among you, let him first cast a stone
at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and
wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being
convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one, beginning at the
eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus
was left alone, and the woman
standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up
himself, and saw none but the woman,
he said unto her, Woman, where are
those thine accusers? hath no man
condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And
Jesus said unto her, Neither do I
condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

That has nothing to do with this situation. You can go ahead and let homosexual predators molest your kids. I’d throw the book at them.

It doesn't say that the little girls parents were aware that their 8th grade daughter was dating an adult. That being said the homos have found their wedge, cute little lesbian just "loving" her girlfriend and it's just hate if we don't STFU.

Perhaps the parents were disturbed to find out that their 14 yr old daughter was involved in a sexual relationship, let alone with an adult, let alone supposedly safe at school,let alone in a stall in the public restroom at said school, let alone with a woman.

Let's be clear. At 18 you are an adult. You are able to vote, join the military, sign a contract, buy tobacco, buy a rifle, do big people's stuff.

At 14 you have to ask your parents to rent you "101 Dalmatians".
