Q: 

What do you think about the new "Romeo and Juliet" sex offender laws?

A:  I work in a treatment center for kids that are sex offenders and 2 of our boys out of 80 so''s do have this status, both of them were in consensual relationships and the girls parents caught them and they are both on adult probation with sex offender status for life. The girls did not have anything done to them at all. The girls parent''s charged the boys. Both were sent to adult jail before they were sent for treatment These 2 are innocent and should never have gone to jail, but the other 78 are actual sex offenders, most of them pedophiles (meaning at like 15 they were raping or molesting young children under the age of like 9 many much younger than that) So while I think it''s horrible that some innocents get charged, there are many more on juvenile probation that ends at 18 who are...

Student sexual harassment

A:  Yes, these are criminal assaults. I suggest you consult with a personal injury attorney immediately and discuss what legal action you can take against the school district, the bus company, and the students who are attacking him. It may even be advisable to contact the police and file criminal charges against the students who are doing this. I feel for your son who is being terribly bullied and harassed. He may need some professional counseling to deal with all this. Good luck. "The line between civil liability for sexual harassment and what is criminal is not at all clear to me." Both are spelled out in the relevant law. Most harassment doesn't give rise to a remedy. "I am currently involved...

Stalking and harassment

A:  You need to immediately bring this to the attention of your local police. You should probably go to your HR dept as well. A lot of places have passed anti-stalking laws.
