Why would it be surprising? Few states have 16 as the age of consent.

However, that link GenYus provided has wrong information. Florida has an age-gap provision.

In Florida, 16 is the age of consent if the other person is between the ages of 16 and 23. (So an 18-year-old can't become a convicted sex offender for having consensual sex with a 17-year-old.) However, once you turn 24, the high school sophomores are off the table; you have to stick (it) to adults over 18 or go to jail.

So, yes it is illegal for a 72-year-old to have sex with a 16-year-old. I'm not sure why that is surprising.

For more than half of the states, the age of consent is 16.

How is the link wrong?

Most states have close-age exceptions to the age of consent for "Romeo and Juliet" situations. The unqualified age of consent, which is what the situation questioned would be, is 18.

Default Wife Battered Husband After She Found Dildo Among His Belongings, Cops Charge

After discovering a dildo among her husband’s belongings during a move Wednesday night, Florida woman Chao Gao attacked her spouse, leaving him with bruises and scratches on his face, according to cops who arrested Chao for domestic battery. As detailed in court records, the 48-year-old Chao and Joshua Sinclair, who have been married for just over a year, were driving to a new residence in Sarasota when Gao confronted Sinclair about the sex toy she discovered. In a police statement, Sinclair wrote that Gao became furious upon learning from him that “a dildo she found was actually for me to use.”

Not familiar with the book (series?). I am not sure where my choice of locution came form - just seemed funny.

Terry Pratchett.

Well worth reading.

(While it does contain some recurring characters, you don't have to have read additional Pratchett for it to make sense.

If sense is exactly the word I'm after there.)

Default ‘Grunting’ suspect in face-eating attack on a random rampage, deputies say

Something made a young man go mad.

He viciously stabbed a married couple twice his age, plus a neighbor who tried to intervene, deputies said. They found him crouched over the bleeding body of the man, biting chunks of his face off.

This happened last night within walking distance of my house.

Icon220 Florida Man Jailed For Oral Activity On Boardwalk

AUGUST 25--A man spotted yesterday afternoon performing oral sex on a woman lying down on a Florida beach boardwalk told cops that he was an “emergency responder and had to assist the female as it was his duty,” according to a criminal complaint.

A Treasure Island Police Department officer found Tracy Briley, 50, with his shorts at his ankles and “penis out in plain view” around 1 PM Wednesday. Briley, the cop noted, “was performing cunnilingus on a female subject laying on the beach boardwalk.”

Hey! A rare sighting of the correct use of the word "laying" in that sense!


thorny -- can't break herself of reading it that way when it's used for 'lying' -- locust
