Blame the parents of the perps. Period. End of story. Prosecute the parents for this crap and it will stop happening
I'm so very very tired of arguing this point with other people. But how else will justice be served?
Prosecute the parents who allowed these minors to drink too.
End of story and if you don't agree, kindly piss off.
I don't know the case law, but the statute for 1st degree statutory just mentions the vic's age, not the perp.
A person commits the crime of statutory rape in the first degree if he has sexual intercourse with another person who is less than fourteen years old.
