Law in Hyperspeed

The ADDventures of a practicing attorney in a southern state. I hope those in the law and those with ADD can find some comfort and help in these postings. The only real person in this blog is the author. The people described in this blog mostly represent sterotypes of some of the characters I see in my travels.

A Law and Order Post

OK, first check out this PDF of a newspaper story. Look closely at the two faces.

I'm trying hard to decide what I would do if this was my daughter. Yes, I wouldn't want some 22 year old to help my 14 year old run away. I'm sure I would be traumatized and hurt if I were the parents in this matter. I'm sure I would be very upset (almost where's my shotgun upset) if this guy had had sexual relations with my daughter. But, I'm trying to decide as a parent what I would want the authorities to do.

Now look at the guys words. "This is terrifying...I love your daughter more than life itself....I understand your pain....It may have been a bit rash. She begged and pleaded with me to leave." He even signs the email "Love Paul." He sure doesn't sound like some evil kidnapper to me.

The real question is what will the authorities do. Seems like when I was younger some wise judge might look at this as two young people who did something foolish and go easy on the guy even though he is legally an adult. Something tells me that this guy won't get that kind of treatment. Certainly not from most judges in the South. Society takes things quite seriously now.

What should be his punishment? Probation? Some jail? Life in prison? I welcome any comments.
