FTFABy accepting the plea deal, Hunt would have been placed on house arrest for two years.

House arrest for two years, no felony conviction, and no requirement to register as a sex offender? I understand the want to fight for a statement, but I have to say that in that position, I might just take the deal.

An 18 year old and a 14 year old. I don't understand what the discussion is about. Seems like that was a pretty sweet plea deal.

Hahahaha, she seems to think that because she is gay and femaie that she is somehow above the law.

I'm not so sure about the stance that "if it were a boy and a girl" there wouldn't be an issue. I mean, an 18yo "boy" would get tried as an adult and be sent to prison for 10-20 years.

Apparently the parents of the 18 year old are trying to turn this into a case of judicial revenge because the 14 year old was involved with someone of the same sex, rather than the fact it was someone of age with someone very much not of age of consent.

The hope  is that by going for the bigotry/discrimination angle, they can get public and popular opinion to either pressure the DA into dropping the charges, or influence the jury not to convict.

Hey - I am all about equality.  If it illegal for heterosexual couples to have a relationship with that age difference (where one side is a minor) why should it be any different for a same sex relationship?  (Gal should have taken the plea).
 
2013-05-24 06:18:05 PM
Double standards aside and all, 2 years house arrest is a very sweet deal to say no to. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

You know, I'm all in agreeance with you with one caveat. In many states, marriage of the two parties eliminates the possibility of a statutory rape charge.

/oh, this shall be interesting.

I completely agree with her, her family, friends and supporters that the law is wrong. Being 18, in high school and having sex with a younger peer or classmate is not a crime, IMHO. I know we all agree that someone 18 or older with a limited spread of 4 or 5 years age difference would prevent unnecessary statutory rape cases, as well as not putting non-sex offenders on those stupid websites.

But, I think they should have taken the plea deal to avoid an awful legal mess.

well, it also matters what the law there is regarding young person with young person.  most states allow either 3 or 4 year age gaps so it's not child rape for an 18 y/o to be with a 16 y/o.  I'm assuming they have  4 year window, it the younger is off by a couple months.  sometimes, the law came feel a little arbitrary, when, for example, you either did something totally lawful, or child rape worst felony ever because someone was born on a monday instead of a tuesday.

Somthing similar happened to a friend of mine. He started dating a girl when he was 17 and she was 15. When he turned 19 and the girl was 17 the parents got mad and had him prosecuted. He's still trying to get off the sex offender list. It is bullshiat for him and it's bullshiat for this girl.

If it goes to a jury she would look like an idiot taking the plea bargain. Generally the prosecution gives plea bargains to people they don't have enough evidence to convict them on.
 
2013-05-24 06:21:56 PM
As with the one that put her in this position in the first place, she is going to regret that decision.

Plea deals for that sort of thing don't get any better. Now they're going to hang her out to dry.
 
2013-05-24 06:22:13 PM
Sorta surprised she rejected it. That deal wouldn't even be on the table for a male in her position. I was already having trouble sussing up sympathy for this girl but that really just does it for me

Has there been any sort of proof that the mother of the 14 year old is truly motivated by homophobia and not just the usual "I don't want my 14 year old having sex" attitude? All I've read is the mother of the 18 year old saying it's because she's a bigot.

Uhhh... I don't have the GoogleFu now, but I saw a report where it *would* be a felony conviction, year of supervised probation, and free rein for the courts to look at her emails and online accounts.

It's still on her criminal record, which affects her ability to gain employment (and possibly adopt kids). Also, doesn't house arrest affect your ability to go to college?

In any case, it's in the news now, so anytime someone googles her name for such things, it's going to pop up. So I'd probably want to take the plea deal anyway.

IIRC from the last thread on this, the Romeo and Juliet statute for their state does not make what they did legal, but it does allow her to petition the court, upon conviction, to keep from having to register as a sex offender.

She's still got a felony conviction for at least 10 years before she can expunge it from her record, if they'll allow it.

I do think the law is wrong and needs to be written in such a way that it eliminates it's use as a parental revenge tool. I also think that it's wrong that a heterosexual couple involved in this could get married and eliminate the issue, and a homosexual couple could not.

There was a similar case here in California.  Guy turned 18, his girlfriend was a year younger.  The father pressed charges.  Normally the police would have not bothered, but in this case the father was a cop, so his buddy network took care of things.

Last I heard, the couple is now married with a baby.  The guy is stuck on the sex offender's list so his job prospects are severely limited.  I doubt they have any interaction with daddy dearest.

So these parents don't like the lesbian angle. Some other girl's parents don't like the boyfriend because he's not Jewish. Some other girl's parents don't like the fact that the guy was black. Some other girl's parents don't like the bf/gf because they are poor.

Thats still 2 years of her life for being in a relationship that started out as legal. Letter of the law people are the reason western society is crumbling around the edges. There is no leeway for circumstance. No mercy for petty issues.
Making someones way of life illegal simply because they had a birthday and the law says that makes them an adult to me screams ignorance and for the most part indicates a broken legal system.

What if the state requires parental permission due to the age of the girl? If the parents don't want them to date and would press Statutory Rape charges what are the odds that they'll give permission to marry?

I take it you are in the area and are looking forward to drooling over any "evidence" during the trial (if called to be a juror)?

Or better yet - is this a state where the jury can ask questions of the defendent? boy that could get fun.

Ah, yes. The magical ages of 16, then 18, then 21 where you suddenly become responsible enough to engage in behaviors that were completely out of the question the day before.

/ if you have to place an arbitrary age limit on your law to enforce it, it probably shouldn't be a law

runescorpio: Thats still 2 years of her life for being in a relationship that started out as legal.


Look. Look. I know what you're saying here, and I generally agree with you, but the relationship was never "legal" to begin with. The girl was 14, and the other girl was 17. Florida only recognizes a two year age difference for consensual relationships before the age of majority, IIRC.
 
2013-05-24 06:31:04 PM
The relationship had been going on for some time, when they were 14 and 17. The parents of the then-14-year-old waited until the day Hunt turned 18 to file charges. From what I've read, they're religious, blamed Hunt for coercing and turning their child gay, and planned for the birthday to punish them. But can they prove that they were together once Hunt turned 18? Seems to me that Hunt and the girlfriend could have decided to cool thing down until the girlfriend became legal. If all the activity happened prior to Hunt turning 18, then it's not statutory rape, is it?

2013-05-24 06:31:25 PM
It looks like the parents of the younger girl waited until the older girl turned 18 so they could destroy her life.  They knew about and allowed the relationship before she turned 18.
 
2013-05-24 06:32:27 PM
There was another thread on this and I said in that thread that the law is the law, whether it's fair or not and guys in the same situation have frequently been more harshly convicted and sentenced for the same thing. And I was of course called an asshole. Which I am of course but I was called an asshole for not calling it a homophobia issue. This was before I called the situation totally hot but that's besides the point.
