Re: Why Are So Few Statutory Rapes Prosecuted?

A young actress named Mary Cathleen Collins, later to be known as Bo Derek, began having a sexual relationship with actor/director John Derek when she was sixteen. He was thirty years her senior. The couple lived in Germany for two years because of the possibility of statutory rape prosecution under U.S. law. They married when Bo turned 18 and stayed married until John's death.

Young people mature at vastly different rates and situations like these should be judged on a case-by-case basis.

Okay, I may have misrepresented the facts a bit. I called Bo Derek an actress.

Oh, and shouldn't this thread and the one on the same topic in TNZ be consolidated?
