Really? You are calling this chick a child molester for having sex with somebody that's only one year younger than her? I bet you were one hell of a child molester in high school when you were eye fricking the 17 and 16 year old hotties on the volleyball team and the cheerleaders.
She should have never been arrested in the first place and the laws she was arrested under were designed to keep 38 year olds away from 9 year olds, not 18 and 17 year olds having a little fun in the hay when mommy and daddy are not home. It is not the same no matter what mental gymnastics you spew.
With that said, this is incredibly stupid of her to do and there is no defense for her. She knows like me that her arrest was unjust but there are some times where you have to live to fight another day and stay away from toxic situations that can frick up your short future and like most dumb people her age, she fricked that up royally.
