What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Alabama
Does anyone have any info on the Alabama law "Sexual Abuse" ?
A 55 year old man has been incarcerated there for months for touching his 17 year old gay friend while the 17 year old was driving a car. It seems crazy this law, for this "non crime"
This 17 year old is of "legal age" of consent and it seems is much larger and stronger than this 55 year old. Also, this charge "sexual abuse", was it not created for persons that are under the control of another person. This hardly seems the case here.
Also, it seems this 55 year old is not fully competent, is rather meek, and is the local church musician, and a “sinning homosexual”. He does not really know how to defend himself. When is talked to sternly by anyone , such as a prosecutor.. he will reply anything, to be liked, such as .. yes, I did turn the moon into green cheese. When threatened, he said to the police “I touched him, but nothing more… “ so now they are saying he is guilty of “sexual abuse”. Apparently the 55 year old was teaching the 17 year old how to drive.
How does a relative help defend this 55 year old? The relative cannot even get in to the jail to see him. Only this mans 91 year old mother has that right under the "1 relative allowed law" and she is not able to recite the alphabet.
To complicate matters, the 17 year olds older brother, now dead, was the apparent gay significant other, of this 55 year old. The 55 year old let this, now dead person use him quite a bit. The local police say that the 17 year old, or one other of his clan now burglarized the home of the now locked up 55 year old. So.. the case seems more and more to look like it is not what the accuser (the 17 year old) claimed at all. Yet this Alabama county seems hell bent on getting this meek 55 year old in a long prison sentence.
