Petition Tag - under age
As per recent reports, the licensing panel of Mansfield District Council imposed a licence suspension of 6 weeks on the Bold Forester following a request by Nottinghamshire police asking the council to review their license. This followed the supposed sale of alcohol to an underage boy, who spent time in various pubs and an off licence in Mansfield, before fatally attacking an innocent man with other youths.
Although we in no way support the sale of alcohol to underage children, we wish to show our support for the well managed and respectable pub we know.
I have a niece (age 16) who was lured via the internet by a man (age 45). We were told by police that they could not charge this SICK man with a felony. They stated the legal age for consensual sex in our state was 16 which we did not know.
Now this is an adult 29 years her senior having sex with her and we could do nothing about it......that is a crime!!! Something needs to be done to these sick individuals....they get away with it too many times and it only feeds their addiction. Now, because police could not reprimend him....he is stalking her and she is not safe! They also can not enforce a protective order until he has committed a crime and caused her harm.....by this point it will be too late.
What is wrong with our justice system they are protecting the guilty instead of the innocent. My niece is not yet of age to get married, buy a lottery ticket or even vote but the government thinks she is of age to decide to have sex? Something is horribly wrong here and it needs changed before this happens to your child. It happens more than you know.
Please help me to raise the legal age for consensual sex to 18 in ALL states.
