First, let me say that as someone with 5 daughters, having any sex offenders in the town makes me uncomfortable.
But given his age at the time of the crime (18) and the light sentence he was given, this is what pops into my head. He's a senior in high school, dates a freshman or sophomore, they have intercourse even though she is under the age of consent, her parents find out and turn him into the cops.
It's still wrong, but I can't imagine he'd only get one year for forcible rape of a minor. View Comment
