The Steubenville rapists were only given one year, just for being minors, because apparently before you turn 18 you’re an impressionable idiot but on the day of your 18th birthday the Adulthood Fairy comes and taps you on the nose with the Magic Wand of Accountability and Maturity. While statutory rape laws are indeed there for a reason, they also come with a lot of problems.
The irony of this case is that, in asserting statutory rape laws, Kaitlyn Hunt is being held to equal standards as anyone else would be in a heterosexual relationship.
Of course, that equality is lost when it comes to marriage rights for many same sex couples across the country.
All this for dating a girl in her school who was 15 years old.
Kaitlyn Hunt, a high school senior in Florida, is facing a choice between going to trial and potentially serving up to 15 years in prison as a sex offender, or accepting a plea of two years under house arrest and a year on probation.
In the end, this isn’t a unique case, it just involves a same-sex couple.
