Can a child be convicted of child molestation? Should he? An appellate judge should be handing out that decision sometime today. In the meantime, a 17 year old honors student faces having his life utterly ruined because he received oral sex from a 15 year old girl. It was not rape, the act was consensual. Under Georgia law at the time, it was deemed “aggravated child molestation”, and carried a mandatory prison term, of which the boy has already lost over 2 years of his life to. A recent law makes an exception that would have applied in this case, but prosecutors do not want to apply this new law retroactively. I just want to know: how is society being served by keeping this bright young kid in prison? I mean, that’s what the legal system is supposed to do, right? Serve society? Seems more like it’s become just a bunch of people trying to justify their weekly paychecks.
