Is Lolita Ever to Blame, Too?

Okay, I have a really hard time with two guys being sent to prison for having sex with a 16-teen-year old who actually researches (but gets wrong) that she’s old enough to consent to do it.

A 16-year-old girl whose sexual activity already landed one man in legal trouble now has a second partner facing a tentative sex-assault charge.

The girl's mother told police last week about the more recent alleged assault involving a 19-year-old Fond du Lac man, according to a police report.

The girl said she had consensual sex with him Dec. 16 in his Fond du Lac apartment, the report said.

She told investigators she thought she could legally have sex with him because she researched the matter following the previous incident and thought she could give consent to the man, the report said.

She said she studied the legalities of the situation after she had sex earlier this year with a Mayville man, the report said. That man, now 20, faces a charge of second-degree sexual assault of a child.

Police said they would refer to the district attorney's office a charge of sexual intercourse with a child 16 or older for the 19-year-old Fond du Lac man.
