Reply To: Restore sex offenders? No, policy makers prefer them dangerous


I think I know how they decided to make this a “sex” case issue even with the ages being ok – In any sex offender treatment group, it is made known that sex offenses can also occur between CONSENTING parties when alcohol is involved as they’ll tell you that (even if both are adults) a consensual decision cannot be made while under the influence.
In which case, a GOOD attorney would have thrown this entire case right back in their faces by saying: “Well, your honor, the state says that the alleged victim in this case cannot give consent while under the influence of alcohol. Since both were under the influence, she’s as guilty of sexually assaulting him as he seems to be of sexually assaulting her”

THAT would have raised a few brows to say the least and would have left the court tongue tied.
