    All I have to say it there sure is a bunch of sick tickets here. It is against the law for a reason. Bragging about your conquests DOES NOT make you a man. You should be ashamed of yourself! You would probably be one of those irresponsible douche bags who leaves the underage girl high and dry once you got her pregnant. What is this world coming to? Enough said, sorry for the rant.

    im sure she let it happen, they typically do. Family pushed the issue, blackmail, or spitefull parents? Just my $.03 cents, like the kind you can save on Turkey Hill gas with your Rewards Card!

  • Stupid laws

    19? I’m not so sure a crime occurred here. I mean come on people, 30 years ago this was just another day. Back in the 80’s when I was 19 my girlfriend was 17. Her parents loved me! So why the big deal now????

      First of all laws change for a reason. Second of all it’s illegal if she is under the age of 16. Plain and simple.

      • Make No Mistake

        It’s unlawful because the laws are created to protect kids from abuse. 1 year difference may not seem like much, but when you’re talking TEEN years, it’s a world of difference in maturity. Typically girls mature faster than boys, but not sexually. Men reach sexual maturity around 17 but girls don’t see the same level until much later. So a man sleeping with a girl under the age of 18 is not appropriate in any way. I’m sure he could find someone 18 or over if he tried. If not, then there’s something wrong with him that he needs a sexually inexperienced and immature female child.
