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.
The same kids are 17 and 14, ok...
then they're 18 and 15, and it's illegal...
then they're 19 and 16, and it's ok again. Apparently they're supposed to take a one-year break.
(It would be ok according to the FL statute if the older one was 23 and the younger was 16, actually.)
In this case, they were 18 and 14, not any of the ages you mentioned.
I read elsewhere this “turned 18” is bs. The incident happened one night when the 14 year old was a runaway.
this stuff about who a child wants to love is pedophile playbook 101.
if either or both of them are under 18, the parents need to put a stop to it
Hunt was 18 years old when she molested the 14 year old victim in 2012.
Hunts parents are spreading disinformation, along with some newspapers.
Murder at 17 = juvenile sentence.
Murder at 18 = you are going to the clink with the big boys.
It’s called being an adult, and it isn’t hard to understand at all.
It is not a rough sell in any way.
I will put it in one sentence.
When you reach the age of majority you gain both rights and responsibilities you did not have as a minor.
It is very simple.
The only way to pretend one does not understand it is to have so much distaste for the very concept of responsibility that one blocks it out in an irrational display of mental denial.
Too damned bad.
Growing up would have been a better choice, but there are always criminals who pursue whatever their deviancy is for a whole host of reasons.
Action, meet consequence.
No, they are not supposed to be doing it before their nervous systems are even mature. Not that hard to figure out, teach.
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?
For the entire period between them meeting and Kate being arrested, the younger girl was 14, and Crazy Eyes was 18, legally adult.
Age of consent in FL appears to be 17, since she was charged w/ lewd behavior w/ a minor aged 12-16.
