    Your article seems to imply that everyone whom gets arrested and accused of a sex crime, Is guilty. This is not always the case. I have a friend named Paul,18, Whom was in a nightclub for those over 18. He hooked up with another 18 year old, they had consenual sex. Months later, Paul gets arrested for raping this "minor". Yes, she got in the club with a fake ID. She was only 14 years old. Since my State doesnt have a age defense law, Paul is now a registered sex offender. Was Paul in the wrong, No. He was looking to have legal sex with someone his own age. Yes there are many horrific sex crimes being committed daily but not all accused, are actually guilty.
