Your very first thought is probably, “Are you out of your fucking mind of COURSE I wouldn’t!!That is egregiously wrong and unfair to ruin someone’s life because they did a stupid thing like peeing in public. But that thought is exactly what I am proposing for us to reconsider.
Not because I think it’s wrong for an 18 year old boyto date a 17 year old girl, but because I am afraid of what could potentially happen to these two young people’s lives if god-forbid the girl’s parents somehow end up misinterpreting their relationship. I met him in a group therapy when we were both trying to put our lives back together after getting DUIs.
He had to live in shitty motels because he was no longer allowed to live with his family, due to the fact that there were young children in the family home (his daughter and his nieces).
He was not allowed to see his young daughter or his nieces for an entire year.
He was even tossing around the word …But it was all a lie. Alex ended up being convicted of rape despite the fact that the sex had been consensual.
He had to register as a sex offender, and will continue to have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
