Reply To: CA judge “Turner-ed” by lying victim’s statement, fears recall

Should she be charged too?

What can legally be done to the young lady who lied about her age in this situation? Anything?

Lying is a protect form of speech, even if you don’t agree with it, unless under oath of statement or testimony where you swear or sign what you say is true. There needs to be some legal repercussion for her in this case also, since she lied to him initially until she came clean on her age, which then he walked away. She lied to him for the purposes of sexual pleasure at an alleged appropriate age before saying what her age really was then. Entrapment? Interesting quandary to consider whether she should get away free from this where false pretenses (age) were stated. Fraud? Can the guy press charges under fraud?
