"he was found not guilty on March 12 because the court recognized circumstances that could have misled him into believing that the woman had given her consent. The ruling said that although she was too drunk to resist him, she was able to utter words and gave no clear rejection of his actions at the time."

The List - The New Yorker
“High school was bliss for me,” DuBuc said recently. “I tried not to dwell on the stuff that wasn’t good.” But, as she was about to start her freshman year at Western Michigan University, she got a call from a close childhood friend, Victoria, who asked, “Did you know you’re on the public sex-offender registry?”

...

The [Texas sex offender treatment] plan also included a monthly polygraph ($150) and a computerized test that measured how long his eyes lingered on deviant imagery ($325). He would also have to submit to a “penile plethysmograph,” or PPG. ... Metts would be billed around $200 per test.

...

The prosecutor pushed for two years in prison... Metts’s attorney urged alternatives that would be less costly for taxpayers. None of Metts’s violations, he noted, had any connection to the original charges of sexual assault of a child. A typical mistake was failing to charge his ankle bracelet’s battery. The judge took some time to think it over. The next morning, she sentenced Metts to ten years in prison.

The six ways we talk about a teenage girl’s age - Salon.com
"Last week, Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh declared a troubled, now dead, 16-year-old girl culpable for her own rape. (The girl was just 14 when the crime occurred.) While in the process of reducing her rapist’s 15-year sentence to 30 days, he explained that the victim was 'older than her chronological age,' and 'as much in control of the situation' as the 49-year-old teacher found guilty of raping her.
...
"This happens with dulling regularity, and has for years.
...
"An adolescent girl isn't allowed to be 'her age.' Indeed, she doesn't actually have one age but many that people assess and judge as she goes through her day. When it comes to sexual assault, consent and justice, and individual girl's 'age' is especially a matter of social construction.
...
"First, there's her chronological age.
Second, there's the age her body looks — which, for too many people in and out of the justice system, apparently makes a difference in rape.
Third, there's emotional age.
Fourth, there's commercially profitable age.
Fifth, there's media age.
Lastly, there's the age at which a girl is portrayed as 'fair game' for older men."

The Myth of the Teenage Temptress: Or Why A Young Girl Can Not Consent to Sex With An Adult Man | xoJane
"[O]n Monday, Stacey Rambold, a Senior High teacher convicted of raping 14-year-old Cherice Morales, who later committed suicide, was sentenced to spend just 30 days in jail. The judge justified his decision in part by saying he listened to recorded statements given by Morales before her death and believes that while she was a troubled youth, she was 'as much in control of the situation' as Rambold.

"The judge also said Morales was 'older than her chronological age.'

"Yep, you read that right. A 14-year-old 'troubled youth' who eventually committed suicide (as a direct result of the sexual assault and its aftermath, according to her mother) had 'control over the situation' with a 49-year-old rapist. But don't worry, this wasn't 'the kind of rape most people think about,' according to Judge G. Todd Baugh. 'It was not a violent, forcible, beat-the-victim rape, like you see in the movies.' He generously added that 'It was nonetheless a rape...and this should not have occurred.'"
