Statutory rape is legally defined as:
“The criminal offense of statutory rape is committed when an adult sexually penetrates a person who, under the law, is incapable of consenting to sex. Minors and physically and mentally incapacitated persons are deemed incapable of consenting to sex under rape statutes in all states. These persons are considered deserving of special protection because they are especially vulnerable due to their youth or condition.”
If you are a male, say age 18 and you have sex with a 14 year old girl, in most states that constitutes statutory rape. In all but three states, the age of consent is 18. That’s where the slang expression ‘jail bait’ came from when referring to a girl under the legal age.
Technically, the same should hold true if both participants are of the same sex, with one being under the legal age of consent. However, in keeping with the tradition of homosexuals demanding preferential treatment, a lesbian in Florida insists her actions were legal.
The defendant in this case is Kaitlyn Hunt. She has been charged with a felony, lewd and lascivious battery on a child for having sexual relations with her 14 year old girlfriend. She claims that the sex was consensual and therefore no crime was committed. Hunt argues that if they were a straight couple, no charges would have been filed, but because they are gay, she was charged with the crime.
Yet, I hear on the news from time to time about a teenage boy being arrested and charged with statutory rape or some other wording of the same crime, for having sex with his underage girlfriend, especially here in Kentucky. If you ask me, that kind of blows Hunt’s argument out of the water.
But she’s not done. Her attorney has also filed a motion to have Circuit Judge Robert Pegg remove himself from the case. Why? It’s because Pegg is not gay. Hunt and her attorney believe that a straight judge will not rule fairly on her case. But what they are really after is to get a gay judge who will rule in her favor. She doesn’t want equal treatment under the law, she wants privileged treatment because she is a homosexual.
I truly hope they find her guilty not because she is a lesbian, but because that is the rule of law.
