“A female student told the school’s assistant principal that she witnessed Starr getting up from her knees in the stairwell while the boy quickly pulled up his pants, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed by Officer Matthew Gordon of the Waterborne Area School District Police.” This is not evidence she did not see sexual activity!

There are no consequences when the prosecutors, and courts get it wrong in some states to combat some of this stuff it would be very beneficial to at least make it incredibly expensive to get it wrong. When someone is wrongfully convicted of a crime it should be an EPIC loss for the state. This would make convicting people without evidence allot less desirable.
