    The drunk argument has not place in this discussion (at least it shouldn't). All parties were drunk. What matters is if she ever actually gave consent. Obviously, if she was unconscious, she could not have given consent. The question is did she?
    Actually "the drunk argument" does have a place given that there are different degrees of intoxication.

    It might be connecting the dots, but the dots are pretty close together and quite large.

    Which source gives some evidence and instances of the family being "terrorized"?

    Lizzie, you work in the Health Profession too, you know how this works and you surely have had exposure to it at some time in your career. Mature adults have enough difficulty facing the prospect of giving evidence in Court for sexual assault cases, never mind a 14 year old. If she is traumatised/doesn't want to/mentally unstable, her Mum can't force her no matter much she wants her to follow through on the process. She can counsel/guide/encourage/support her daughter but she cant make her testify.

    In the meantime, the town had already begun to turn on the Coleman family. Threatening phone calls and online threats were directed at the family.

    Words just can't describe....

    What's with this mentality of protecting athletes at all costs?

    Or protecting boys?????

    Why are girls seen as expendable?
    Sounds pretty awful. I don't know how in the hell they declined to press charges if they had video confessions and physical evidence.

    Looking at this again, it's not the ORC which applies in this case, but Missouri Revised Statutes.

    Statutory rape and attempt to commit, first degree, penalties.

    566.032. 1. 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.

    2. Statutory rape in the first degree or an attempt to commit statutory rape in the first degree is a felony for which the authorized term of imprisonment is life imprisonment or a term of years not less than five years, unless in the course thereof the actor inflicts serious physical injury on any person, displays a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument in a threatening manner, subjects the victim to sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with more than one person, or the victim is less than twelve years of age in which case the authorized term of imprisonment is life imprisonment or a term of years not less than ten years.
    Statutory rape, second degree, penalty.

    566.034. 1. A person commits the crime of statutory rape in the second degree if being twenty-one years of age or older, he has sexual intercourse with another person who is less than seventeen years of age.

    2. Statutory rape in the second degree is a class C felony.
    So, it's different from Ohio law, but it's still not statutory rape in this case.

    Here's general rape:

    Forcible rape and attempted forcible rape, penalties--suspended sentences not granted, when.

    566.030. 1. A person commits the crime of forcible rape if such person has sexual intercourse with another person by the use of forcible compulsion. Forcible compulsion includes the use of a substance administered without a victim's knowledge or consent which renders the victim physically or mentally impaired so as to be incapable of making an informed consent to sexual intercourse.

    2. Forcible rape or an attempt to commit forcible rape is a felony for which the authorized term of imprisonment is life imprisonment or a term of years not less than five years, unless:

    (1) In the course thereof the actor inflicts serious physical injury or displays a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument in a threatening manner or subjects the victim to sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with more than one person, in which case the authorized term of imprisonment is life imprisonment or a term of years not less than fifteen years;

    (2) The victim is a child less than twelve years of age, in which case the required term of imprisonment is life imprisonment without eligibility for probation or parole until the defendant has served not less than thirty years of such sentence or unless the defendant has reached the age of seventy-five years and has served at least fifteen years of such sentence, unless such forcible rape is described under subdivision (3) of this subsection; or

    (3) The victim is a child less than twelve years of age and such forcible rape was outrageously or wantonly vile, horrible or inhumane, in that it involved torture or depravity of mind, in which case the required term of imprisonment is life imprisonment without eligibility for probation, parole or conditional release.

    3. Subsection 4 of section 558.019 shall not apply to the sentence of a person who has pleaded guilty to or has been found guilty of forcible rape when the victim is under the age of twelve, and "life imprisonment" shall mean imprisonment for the duration of a person's natural life for the purposes of this section.

    4. No person found guilty of or pleading guilty to forcible rape or an attempt to commit forcible rape shall be granted a suspended imposition of sentence or suspended execution of sentence.
    It appears that rape is out as a charge, based on the witness's account, but there are a slew of sexual misconduct charges which may apply:

    Yes, what happened to the good old days where we simply convicted without it?

    What's happening in this thread is an example of how rape victims have been traditionally treated. They report that they've been raped and people question, doubt and interrogate them in the name of ensuring that the accused are protected and not unfairly treated. In other words, people have more concern for the accused than they do for the accuser (the victim). It's sick. It's a part of rape culture that sustains the acceptability of rape in our society and it's rape apologism.
    No, we have more concern for the truth. Why should making an allegation be free of questioning? If I accuse you of murder, should we just accept my word for it?

    The point is assuming an allegation to be true is not only dangerous, it's also against our very deeply held notions of justice. Just because we question the story told by the rape victim, it does not mean we think she is lying.

    Then neither could the boys, so arrest her for rape.

    You're arguing in circles and it's tiresome.

    Legally, you can argue all you want about if it is considered rape or sexual assault or the misdemeanor of sexual contact with a minor, but she literally and legally did not have the capability to provide consent and all sexual activity initiated against her would be illegal.
    Nonsense. If her alcohol consumption makes her incapable of consent, then the boys consumption makes them incapable of consent. It works both ways.

    Also, being drunk is not a legal excuse for the commission of ANY crime.
    I've already explained this multiple times. Go read one of those.

    So she was at the level which says she cannot consent, but the boys were at the level which says they could. Got it. Good thing you're remaining unbiased.

    B) a young 14 year old girl can get unconsciously drunk while the guy can still be just boisterously drunk. Huge difference.
    I agree. Just like a young 17 year old boy can get unconsciously drunk while the woman can just be boisterously drunk.

    C) If he was "as drunk as she was" he couldn't have had sex with her.
    If she consented and he was as drunk as her, then yes he could.

    He would have been passed out
    If she was passed out, then she couldn't have consented. We're discussing if she did consent, so we're assuming (for this part of the discussion) she wasn't passed out.

    and/or incapable of achieving erection.
    I do not recall anything being said about him having an erection or raping with his penis. Everything I've seen has been fingers.

    D) No matter how drunk a guy is - he's got no right or justification what-so-ever to put his penis in any hole he can.
    Right...women are not responsible for their actions when drunk but guys are.

    Double standards at their finest.

    E) No matter how drunk a girl is, she doesn't deserve to be violated.
    Agreed, and have from the beginning. Where we differ is on the point of whether it's consider being violated if you agree to it.

    I'm saying a full-on investigation, and an honest trial are warranted. Obviously the investigation needs to be done by agencies outside of this podunk-backwards-ass mid-western hell hole.
    And I'm saying a trial is not an investigation and should never be considered as one. You keep yelling about a trial, but a trial is only after investigation shows the prosecutor there is a real likelihood of conviction.

    Ahh...so these boys are just naturally rapists? Or would you say their degree of intoxication was so great it put them to actions they would not normally do?

    No, the drunk argument has no place.

    It doesn't. A perpetrator doesn't "consent."

    Intoxication is an affirmative defense for some offenses, but as of yet I have not found that to be the case for sexual offenses.
