State Supreme Court Rules Having Sex With Minors is Legal But Sexting Them is Illegal

By Matt Agorist-October 8, 2017

Sexting minors is illegal, but having sex with them is okay, an Indiana Supreme Court has ruled.

Indiana high school teacher Sameer Thakar faces three years in prison for sending nude photographs to a 16-year old girl after the Supreme Court ruled earlier this week to reverse a lower court’s decision to throw out the case.

Thakar began texting the teenager in 2014, when he was 38. After a short period in which the girl told him she was underage, he then sent her images of his erect penis, court documents reveal.

He was charged with one count of felony dissemination of matter harmful to minors, but argued in court that the charge doesn’t make sense.

In Indiana, it is legal for adults to have consensual sex with 16 year olds. It is illegal, however, for a person to knowingly send sexually explicit photographs to someone under 18, which is classed as disseminating material harmful to minors.

The court originally threw out the charges, explaining it was “patently illogical” that a man could have sex with a teenager, but not send them images. The case was appealed and ended up in Indiana’s Supreme Court.

Stupid sleepy Legislators and Governors are the new thing.  But I think the real reason is the Legislators and Governors are Drunk out of their minds While Legislating.

Romeo and Juliette laws are making a loophole, but no way are teen lovers not sexting. Angry parents are sometimes making the young men pay with a sex offender record, when really I think the laws are trying to stop creepy pedos, not young love - however immoral someone may find young passion.

It is not working, the spirit of the law too easily defiled.

Or, most probably protecting themselves and their vile deeds / practices by massaging the law.
