Response to WeekendWarrior (Reply #89)

92. Sorry - that's what I meant

Forties, thank you for the correction.

I do agree that he may be telling the truth, but I also don't like the idea of attacking the accusers. It is quite possible that the first accuser was pressured into changing his story - he certainly has indicated as much.

I agree that, of course, there are many men in their forties who would happily sleep with an attractive eighteen year old. I daresay there are also many men in their forties who would happily sleep with an attractive sixteen year old if they thought they could get away with it. I know that the former is legal and the latter is (generally speaking) not, but I think that the two desires are certainly similar in many respects.

I also agree that if he has done nothing illegal and had a relationship with an eighteen year old then he should of course have his name cleared. If either of these young men is lying then they should face consequences for doing so. I am just saying that I would be more inclined to believe that the allegations were false and simply attempts at a money grab if the accused did not actually have a sexual relationship with this person when the accuser was eighteen.

I hope that eventually the truth does come out and that justice is served. On that, I am sure we can agree.
