A 22 year old Nebraska loading-dock worker has been prosecuted for having sex with a thirteen year-old girl -- a girl for whom her mother took out a protection order against the 22 year-old. Too late. She is now fourteen, a high school student, married (for which the couple drove to Kansas), and a mother. Stories here, here, and here.
"Our position is we will prosecute cases where adult men are having sex with children," says the prosecutor, quite properly. Oddly enough, the paedophile has his apologists. Jim Peron saw fit to publish his apologia on his blog that claims to be 'Looking in NZ'. I wonder what he thinks the relevance is to NZ? Perhaps you should ask him.
