Reply To: A young mother struggles with life on the sex offender registry


Ok. I have a problem with Shawna’s story….

She was DRINKING and the teenager basically DID take advantage of her.
It is technically a CRIME to have sex (even if it’s consensual) with a person who has been drinking. Even if the person is not FULLY intoxicated, it’s no different than being UNDER THE INFLUENCE and not having a good enough grasp on your own reasoning.

So TECHNICALLY, the TEENAGER committed RAPE. Why was this 19 year old charged but not the male teen? Why?

Oh, and Sandy, I do believe they made mention of the story about the two lovers on the beach. They DID get charged with a sex offense and they ARE required to register.
