    Just an FYI...2 months after being released, Mr. Porter had sex with a 16 year old and has violated his parole......A report has been filed...

    Porter pleaded no contest to unlawful intercourse with a minor and a “no contest” plea is seen by the court as the same as a guilty plea. So why would the charges of lewd acts on a minor and arranging a meeting to engage in lewd or lascivious behavior with a minor be dismissed?

    Ms Crenshaw stated...Esp since I know of a guy that has been in federal prison for 5 years for attemping to have sex with a 13 year old girl... he got caught before he did and still got 15 years.

    Interesting comment. Sometimes it appears there is no rhyme or reason to the length of sentence given. If you look at Sarah Dutra, who served nearly her entire sentence ( was just released after 10 years), was convicted of poisoning attorney Larry McNabney on Sept. 11, 2001. She and her alleged accomplice drove his body north and stashed it in a garage refrigerator in his Woodbridge home before ultimately burying it in a shallow grave.
    Richard Evans was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison for lewd acts on a minor.

    So now we have an adult who actually performed the sex act on a minor and this sentence is given. I understand each case is different but it is difficult to understand why the consequence and punishment for crime varies so dramatically.

    interested in 1) what is false in the article? 2) Why no mention about if he now has to register as a sex offender or not... I am not well versed in the ins and outs of Megan's Law enough to know.

    Seems to me that in order for the courts/DA to accept a no contest plea and give so little time there must be some pretty major factors to consider. Esp since I know of a guy that has been in federal prison for 5 years for attemping to have sex with a 13 year old girl... he got caught before he did and still got 15 years.

    some pretty serious charges were dismissed "in the interrest of justice".
    Please someone explain how the court arrived at this opinion.
    Credit for time served and probation---that's it?
    Please don't tell me this guy is the victim of a 13 year old cugar.

    And, shouldn't the girl have to be punished, too? Isn't it against the law for her to have sex at her young age?? She is so lucky she didn't get preggers.

    You might want to check your information before writing a false article, some of it might be true but most of it is false. You might want to go to the person and ask so you have the correct facts.
