    Here is a news flash. Yield not to temptation. Having sexual intercourse with a minor (boy or girl under 16) is a crime that will put one in serious legal jeopardy, resulting in jail time if adjudicated guilty. It does matter how mature or sexy one look or easy a girl or boy is if they are under 16 you are in BIG trouble. Control your hormone and stay out of jail where you may become someone bi..h.

    He's 21 and knows he just became of legal age, so he should know anyone younger than him is off limits. When will these young people wake up? Now he messed up his tender years to come, with an arrest record. Will you parents please talk to your children and stop being so busy with your work or whatever you are doing. Your children are the most important part of your responsibilities too. Teach them well and let them lead the way.

    So a 21 year old can get bail but a 16yr old remanded at the prison. We really have our priorities mixed.
