Because to be clear, I would support either a law that makes it

1. Illegal (sexual offense requiring registry on the sex) for police officers (honestly, any government official acting in the capacity of their office) to have consensual sex with someone IN THEIR CUSTODY.

or

2. Defines consensual sex by a police officer (or any government official acting in the capacity of their office) with someone in IN THEIR CUSTODY as statutory rape.

In this particular case, the officers absolutely are saying the sex was consensual. Although they have been charged, if the prosecution can not provide enough evidence to convince a jury that it wasn't consensual, they may not be convicted because consensual sex is not rape.

I'm saying I would support a law that says, "It doesn't matter if it was consensual or not. If this person is IN YOUR CUSTODY, you shouldn't be doing it and if you do, you are going to face criminal charges."


Also, having consensual sex while on shift for just about any job in public service should be a fire-able offense. But it shouldn't be a criminal issue, it should be a policy issue. Private companies can do what they want.
No I don't think it's OK. If you took that away from my posts, then I wasn't clear.

I doubt there's any state where LEO is allowed to have sex with those in their custody. I'd like to know more.

Both officers have been charged with rape. Perhaps we should wait for the verdict.
The article never says there are "states where rape is legal.".

I only posted the original article with the map of the states.
But Here's a CBS report about Kansas dealing with the issue that states 33 other states have not.

...Eddie Martins and Richard Hall, the cops who resigned after the incident involving the then-18-year-old Chambers, were sentenced to five years of probation after they pleaded guilty to 11 charges, including bribery and misconduct. Both men admitted to having sex with the teenage girl while she was held in their custody in 2017, an act that, thanks to Chambers’s case, now constitutes rape under the law (and always constituted rape under any moral reading of the word)....
https://theintercept.com/2019/01/25/...lice-rape-law/

they initially faced 43 counts of rape
they made a plea deal, down to the lesser charges but still felonies
prosecution thought they were going to a couple years in prison
what they got.
5 years probation.

Justice?
well at least Harvey Weinstien is in jail right.

Probation does not protect them from retaliation. I would not want to be in their shoes for any amount of money.

there is sometimes a clear right and wrong . Discover the difference
I don't think you actually read Zenock's post. How surprising.

No, it isn't justice. Given the breach of trust, nothing short of a life sentence would be justice.

The judge should be facing charges of corrption and the prosecution should get kicked in the nuts for not getting anything in writting....

What a terrible example of idiots not doing the right thing....

Hope the girl sues the cops in civil court....
