I'm kinda inclined to agree with HHF assuming it was consensual, although this all may mean nothing if the baby ends up with the boy instead.

I'm a little lost as far as why we're using these sign-offs and I approve this message. :-B

I also am the husband of a woman with a chikd from a previous marrage whose ex does not pay his child support regularly.

I don't have a problem with the kid paying child support. I very seriously doubt if the 15 year old had to be tied down and actually forced to have sex with her. At 15 you should know the potential consequences of sex, a baby being one of them. If he didn't then blaime the situation on his parents for not at least having a few convesations with him.

50 bucks child support is nothing. Tell the 16 year old to get a job and support his child. Take the rest of the money he is earning and get his baby out of the abusers home, if thats where the baby is. I have absolutely zero tolerance for ANYONE who tried to get out of supporting thier child. And yes that includes a 16 year old. If I found out that someone I knew was hiding out to avoid paying child support, I would narc that person out as quick as I could find a phone and the number to the state attorny general's office. I have more sympathy for the fly that hit my windshield on the way to work this morning.

As far as the girl being charged with a crime, thats a whole different issue. Unless in court it is shown that she physically forced herself on him, If I was a juror I would have to say not guilty.


Interesting take and I don't really disagree with anything, but a few points to ponder:

She's facing 18 months in jail and having to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years, so I'm curious as to how/why a judge allowed a sexual predator (according to the law) to have custody of a kid. :-?

I'm also curious as to what the youngest person to be court ordered to pay child support is. This kid is 16 and they didn't mention a landmark decision, first of its kind, or anything like that, so I'm guessing another minor (child) out there somewhere has been ordered to pay child support in a seperate case? :-?

And of course the obvious weirdness of the victim being punished comes to mind. I mean one can argue there's no way the boy wasn't willing, but by law he is the victim, so why was he court ordered to pay child support to the sexual predator? 8-o :-o :-?

The whole thing is goofy to me. :-S

Agreed. Adult male molestes underage girl, gets the baby, and then she (the victim) has to pay child support.

That would be even crazier than this story, and I didn't think that was possible. :-b

This is proof that we will always have a double standard and that there should be a double standard. :-?

Or how I like to state it, "Isn't it great to be a man?" :-°

On the bright side, maybe this will teach him not to screw around with girls four years older than him while he's only in his teens.

just to be fair,I can't say I would've acted any differently, I could try to say no, but if she was a real looker, it'd be tough.


I agree... it could be hard for the guy... but honestly... he's got to undertsand the consequences of his actions... I actually feel really bad for him, because now he's got a pretty crazy problem for a 15 year old to deal with. Not trying to be hard on him, but I hope he does learn from it, and not toss it aside like some would.
Sorry if my response seems harsh. It''s certainly possible I would have reacted the same way if I were him if the girl would good lookin... but then again, I would still have to face it. I sympathize with the kid... wish this hadn't happened, and seriously hope this works out for good things in his life.
Questions or Comments? Feel free to PM me.

I know that I've been given more than beyond measure.

I don't think this was handled incorrectly. Both parties learn a lesson in responsibility, the adult with the stricter of the 2.

saying 'yes' is what caused all this to begin with. ;-7

DON'T have sex. It will only lead to children who have to put up with parents smoking in the car with them and sending them to schools where teachers pack heat
