Police in Richland Township, Pennsylvania have arrested 18-year-old Tyler Scott Burkhart and 21-year-old Christopher Todd Mummert for having sex with 13-year-old girls they met in MySpace. The two cases are actually unrelated.
In Burkhart’s case he picked up his victim up from a playground after meeting her on MySpace. You can’t be any more of a pedophile cliche by doing that.
Anyway besides the fact that these 2 assclowns are child molesting scum I have an issue with some of the charges they’ve been charged with.
Burkhart was charged with three counts each of statutory sexual assault, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and corruption of a minor.
Mummert was charged with one count each of statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and corruption of a minor.
What the hell is statutory sexual assault? These children were under age of consent so let’s call it what it is, statutory rape. Hell, let’s even go as far as having the statutory part removed because even that seems to have lessened the impact of what these child molesters do. It should be called what it really is, child rape.
