This is a very controversial topic! It is sad that the 2 children’s lives led them into a situation like this. To me, the Ohio law seems to be outdated. They are both very young and only 2 years apart. Even though it shouldn’t have happened, it did! And it was consensual with both parties. Now this 14 year old boy will forever be labelled a rapist, even though it was with his girlfriend and agrred upon. What a horrifying experience that will most likely haunt both these children for many years to come. My heart goes out to them and there families who have a VERY long road ahead of them.
SPRINGBORO, Ohio – A 14-year-old Ohio boy is being charged with rape after he and his 12-year-old girlfriend were caught allegedly having sex at school.
Both the boy and girl say the sex was consensual.
However, the Warren County prosecutor said the boy was charged with rape because the girl is under the age of 12, which is Ohio law.
Residents say it’s difficult to understand how this happened.
“When we were in school the teachers monitored the halls, they would come in the bathrooms, they knew where we were,” said Springboro resident Cindy Marconet. “They’re too young. When I was 12 years old I didn’t know about things that deep.”
“I know I’m older and from a different generation, but my gosh,” said resident Norma Alexander, who agrees with Marconet. “You just think your kids are raised with better morals than to go to school and have sex.”
