    Time to bring back public flogging… after a fair trial and guilty verdict, of course.

      Yes. Sexually assaulting anyone is illegal. Sexually assaulting someone who is a minor (younger than 18) puts an exponent on the “illegal.” In fact, an adult doing anything sexual with a minor is illegal because, legally, a minor cannot give consent to have sex.

      Someone on the Trib blog called the jail and asked what the bail was. They said “no bail” that he was on immigration hold, so yes he is an illegal.
