    well i can say i do know both of these people and both were willing and concious of what they were doing therefore the only problem is the law doesnt allow it, yet lets say they are 6 or 7 yrs apart, well what about older people who are 10, 15, 40 yrs apart? the only difference is ther're over age! whether or not punishment should be executed should ALSO be consulted with the "victim"

    yeah you got to watch your kids around some folks. anyways you cant judge much by this story, we dont know the nature of the crimes, (whether it was a physical brutal attack or 'consented'). alot of young guys get in trouble bc they are a few yrs over the legal age, and their girlfriends are a little under the legal age...although under sixteen is pretty young for a 22yr old. what gets me is when irresponsible partying parents have another partying guest in their home who sexually assaults their child/ren. either way, keep an eye on your underage daughters and dont let them hang around older men!
