I can't tell you how truly despicable this parish is. At this point I wish the state of Louisiana had been allowed to secede. In two ways, this 14 year old girl lacked the legal ability to consent to sex, by age and by incarceration. If I am on the jury, I weigh the arguments and decide to triple punitive damages because making such an argument shows how culpable they really are. Seriously, for them to make this argument shows the morally bankrupt attitude that lead to the situation and further shows that they are not even willing to change, much less have.
God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
