If they actually waited until the girl turned 18 to charge her with anything, then you’re looking at an abuse of power. The Flori-DUH judicial system is one of the reasons I’ve always refused to consider jobs in Flori-DUH.
The perps mother is attacking the victims mother as a homophobic bigot for not wanting her kid molested
So your point is that you are upset nothing was done until it became illegal?
Kids should not be having sex together, but until one of them becomes an adult (and even then there has to be more than a three year age differential in most states) then there is little that can be done realistically.
Nor do we know if authorities were even aware before.
As I understand it, the 18yr girl was caught in the school bathroom having sex with the 14yr old girl. The school reported this to the family of the 14 yr old and they pressed charges. The parents of the 18 year old are saying it was going on before their daughter turned 18 and this is only happening because it was gay sex. This is what I understand of the story.
>> If they actually waited
Did “they” have previous knowledge?
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.
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. . .
