Romeo and juliet dating
In Florida, a 28-year-old man who’d been placed on the state’s sex offender registry was able to remove his name after the passage of Florida’s Romeo and Juliet law in July 2007.At age 17, Anthony Croce began having sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend; when he turned 18, the girl’s disapproving mother pressed charges and Croce pleads no contest.The parents are arguing that the laws — which lump underage sex among teenagers into the same category as pedophiles and violent sexual offenders — impose punishments on their children that do not fit the crime.In a particularly poignant example, an 18-year-old high school senior was arrested for having sex with his freshman girlfriend at the same high school.Cases that may lead to an overturned designation would involve a victim who is age 14-17 and has agreed to consensual sex; the offender would have to be no more than 4 years older than the victim and have no other sex crimes on his record.For teenagers who are gay or lesbian and engage in consensual sex, the laws are much tougher.An athlete and honor student, Wilson was videotaped at a New Year’s Eve celebration engaging in oral sex and was sentenced to ten years for aggravated child molestation.After serving jail time from 2003-2007, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled that Wilson should be released; and this decision was followed by a change in state law that reduced consensual sex between teenagers to a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year.
Then as now, two teens having consensual sex is understandable. The difference between the two situations would seem obvious. S., legally speaking, there’s little distinction between Romeo and Juliet's mutual decision and the abusive actions of a child molester.
An older teen who has sex with his younger girlfriend can be arrested, prosecuted, and jailed for the act.
Even worse, he may carry the stigma of being labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life.
B = P(Juliette arrives within some 15min interval) = 15/60 = 1/4. So the points [x,y] of the square are every possible combinations of times when they comes, if I can say it like that. The situation that they come at the same moment is symbolized by the diagonal.
But one of them can arrive even 15 minutes later - the upper line symbolize the situation when Romeo will wait for Julia 15 minutes exactly, so the area between diagonal and upper line symbolize the situation when Romeo will wait for Julia 15 minutes or less.
