    I'm not interested in following you around in circles like a canine preparing his bed. Since he didn't have a sexual interaction with a prepubescent child to begin with, there's no basis for conclusion that he has any kind of sexual attraction to prepubescent children, let alone that he meets the diagnostic criteria for pedophilia.

    I know what he did was terribly wrong and sick, although there are questions about whether or not he knew she was only 13 years old at the time, but shouldn't the wishes of the only person who really matters here be taken into consideration? Why aren't the victim's wishes respected? She wants the charges dropped.

    This whole case is a mess. A mother who offers her 13 year old daughter to a sleazy older guy, who then proceeds to drug and rape her despite her protests. Even if he thought she was legal he DID force himself on her. A judge who agrees to a plea bargain and then changes his mind, forcing the guy to flea the country. The poor confused girl pleading for the charges to be dropped so she can go on with her life without having to be brought back into the spotlight time and time again.

    Something's got to give here. I mean come on. Leave the woman alone already. She's done with this ****.
    I understand your sentiment. But consider, if the man was a farm laborer, and the woman a waitress, might we not think that the man needed to be prosecuted to protect the pubic, bearing in mind that convictions help protect the innocent by providing examples that no one is above or beyond the law.

    I see your point. However, without the victim's cooperation the case would be pretty hard to prosecute.

    He should have been a responsible adult about this instead of running off and letting things fester.

    Really now lets see he pleid guilty to have sexual intercorse with a Child under the age of 16, so are you saying he didn't have Sex with this 13 year Old Girl who under both US federal and Calf. State Law is consider a prepubescent child.

    Further more do you have actual proof that this Scum of Humanity hasn't done this before or after. There has been allot of rumors about this Scum for allot of time way before he raped this Child.

    What I can't believe is the attitudes and statements coming out of some people. Claiming he made a small mistake in the past and that he's a great film director. Well I don't care if he's the Pope, he drugged and raped a little girl and I can't understand how any human could label that as a small mistake. It's repulsive.

    Do you two know what prepubescence is? There's no legal boundary for it; it refers to the condition before puberty when menarche or spermarche has not been achieved and secondary sex characteristics have not developed.

    And what part of both federal and State Penal Code don't you understand that anyone under the age of 16 is consider prepubescence god are you that thick in the head.
