    That's not the point though, Mike, or the reason for the 'outrage'. It's the wider issue of him possibly being linked with the sex trafficking Epstein was involved in, and paedophile rings - and if there's any truth in that whatsoever, then there'll be plenty to be 'outraged' about!!

    For many, the stench of Saville still lingers within the corridors of Buckingham Palace, wondering how vermin like that could be *so* friendly with the Royal Family, without them supposedly knowing anything [not even a teeny-tiny bit] about his 'sexual proclivities'... And, trust me, I could say a LOT more about that stuff!

    The girl was a US citizen and the age of consent is 16 for the majority of US states, but not all.

    I am not an expert in this (and American law seems to vary from state to state)but from wikipedia:

    "In most states there is not a single age in which a person may consent, but rather consent varies depending upon the minimum age of the younger party, the minimum age of the older party, or the differences in age. Some states have a single age of consent.[58] Thirty U.S. states have age gap laws which make sexual activity legal if the ages of both participants are close to one another,[115] and these laws are often referred to as "Romeo and Juliet laws".[110] Other states have measures which reduce penalties if the two parties are close in age, and others provide an affirmative defense if the two parties are close in age.[115] Even though state laws regarding the general age of consent and age gap laws differ, it is common for people in the United States to assume that sexual activity with someone under 18 is statutory rape"

    So the grooming, transportation and age gap between the girls and the men (in positions of authority) must be playing a part in this situation.

    Wikipedia was where I looked to make my post.

    Distasteful as it might be, if the event occurred in a state which had does have a single age of consent and not a "Romeo and Juliet" law, and consent had been given, then no law has been broken.

    The assumption that sexual activity with someone under 18 is statutory rape, is no proof. Again distasteful, but proof would have to be presented that consent had not been not given.

    US Virgin Islands - where I understand Epstein ran his "business" and took many of the girls has age of consent set as 18.

    Edit, the above then brings this in to force (I think):
    {Chapter 117, 18 U.S.C. 2423(a)} forbids transporting a minor (defined as under 18) in interstate or foreign commerce with the intent of engaging in criminal sexual acts in which a person can be charged. This subsection is ambiguous on its face and seems to apply only when the minor is transported across state or international lines to a place where the conduct is already illegal to begin with. The United States Department of Justice seems to agree with this interpretation.

    Whatever way you cut it, at the minimum he was a perv, and likely guilty of much more that was far worse!

    If Andy-Pandy's been up to no good (the same), I wonder if it'd be allowed to come out - and if he'd be taken to task for it...?

    If that is where those events took place then yes, the law was broken.

    I believe Jerry Lee Lewis's third marriage was 'controversial' for similar reasons: the crossing of a State line into a State where the age of consent was lower.

    Never saw the attraction in young meat.. With age comes style and experience..
    Chasing near kids is bordering.. No it is perverted. Unless your a young un yourself of course.

    Any adults taking 16/17 Yr olds like that deserve what they get

    ^^^

    When I was 16/17 I liked 16/17 year old girls - I think it is called age appropriate.

    30/40 year age differences just don't seem right.

    That seems to be the province for rock stars, African dictators, or media and event tycoons.
