She’s not being criminally charged but this article clarifies some things regarding Katherine Lester…
DETROIT — Authorities have filed a runaway juvenile petition against a Michigan teenager who flew to the Middle East to be with a man she met on the MySpace.com social networking Internet site.
The paperwork was filed Monday in Tuscola County Family Court by the county sheriff and prosecutor against Katherine Lester of Gilford, said Kyle Jaskula, the court administrator.
At a hearing on Monday, Judge W. Wallace Kent Jr. ordered Lester to give up her passport and undergo counseling. He did not rule on the validity of the petition, and further hearings have not been scheduled.
If the judge finds that Lester is a runaway, she could be placed under court supervision until she turns 18. Such supervision usually means she would be monitored by a probation officer and made to undergo counseling, Jaskula said.
The petition is not a criminal offense, Jaskula said Tuesday.
So it’s like being on parole but without having committed any crimes. And for those of you who are whining that it’s not fair then she should have thought of that before she ran away. Think about it for a second. If they had succeeded in getting married do you know what kind of international incident this would have caused? She should be thankful that she was stopped before they did. And here’s some advice from Ol’ Uncle Trench to the teenagers who are supporting them. 99.999% of the time the guy or girl you date at 16 will NOT be the person you spend the rest of your life with. Get over it.
