    Just in the interest of clarity - and I know there is no real legal definition one way or the other - when you say "Child Molester", I think of inappropriate contact with someone 12 or under. When some 40 year old fuck is diddling a 15 or 16 year old, what you have is not pedophilia, but statutory rape, and I prefer the moniker "rapist".

    I have a young daughter, and it's muddy terminology like this that makes my state's sex offender database useless. Is the sex assault of an adult with a child, or with a teenaged minor? There is a whole fucking (Hah!) world of difference between the two behaviors, and my response to them.

    Re: James Barbour convicted of child molestation headlines Scientology religious even

    I understand. I used the term because: (1) the formal charge was too long to put in the title of the post; (2) legally the victim was a child; (3) the New York Daily News article referred to him as a "child molester," and what he did as "molestation." I certainly think what he did qualifies.

    Isn't there a world of difference between something like an 18 year old boy who gets caught with his 15 year old girlfriend and a 40+ year old man who has sex with a 15 year old girl? I understand what you saying but I think that boys/young men who are close to the age of a teenage girl are hugely different than a grown man who could easily be her father's age.

    Different states have different ages of consent, and often what are called Romeo and Juliet laws (though apparently New York does not) where the difference in age is what is important. Under a Romeo and Juliet law, a 17 year old having sex with a 15 year old might not be statutory rape, whereas a 40 year old having sex with a 15 year old would be statutory rape.

    Not to take away from the main theme of this thread, but I noticed in the promo...

    That has gotta be one of the weirdest spelling errors I've ever, ever seen, and I've seen a lot! Surely they meant "dissipated" ???

    Where oh where do the people who write this crap get their education? Oh, I forgot, they don't...

    Did the girl ever take him to civil court? I would have screwed his financial balls to the wall.

    I wonder if he is still married to the same foolish woman? If not hope she also screwed them to the wall.

    Maybe after two such screwings he would be able to keep his hands in his own pants.

    A honeymoon in the hand would be the safest sex for him.

    :yes:

    Seriously. I'm sure because he was a Broadway celebrity & it was a Manhattan court room.

    Never heard of gyrotonics before. Looks like it might help my aging body be less impaired.

    If this would've happened in the SO they would've blamed and offloaded the 15 year old and made the offender the Senior CS WUS or something. No shit!

    Yes, he is still married to Dana. The incident became the subject/joke of alot of blogs when the identity of the victim was revealed. Many in NY theatre circles painted her as one of many aspiring actors/actress' willing to go the 'casting couch' route in order to get ahead in showbiz, which, allegedly, explains why she reported the incident 5 years after it happened. (She's now an adult).

    Comment: I see why James Barbour went to jail for her now…

    "Although Barbour admitted to sexually touching a minor child that he knew was under aged, he blames the child for the entire thing.

    His Attorney publicly lashed out at the child, blaming her for Barbour's legal troubles and questioning her motives. Barbour's attorney issued a statement claiming "She initiated both of these sexual encounters and then waited five years before filing a complaint against him".

    Re: James Barbour convicted of child molestation headlines Scientology religious even

    It was because it was a criminal proceeding & Barbour wanted to indict the victim. Judges never allow this to occur. The gag would no longer exist because the victim reached legal age (in New York) 7 years ago.

    I didn't mean to suggest there was still a gag. I posted it because it spoke to his tactics at the time.

    Re: James Barbour convicted of child molestation headlines Scientology religious even

    Of course he would want to blame the girl.... he should have blamed her parents for raising such a "tart".

    It would not matter if she ripped her clothes off and jumped his bones - "San Quentin Quail" should have been at the top of his mind - he could have screamed so her parents would come rescue him.

    It amazes me that a man would put himself in such a situation - being a "star" he should have realized that he could be a victim of "blackmail"... NEVER be in a situation where a finger can be pointed & the charge made. Unless you feel that you are so special the rules/laws do not apply to you.

    Again.... how many other girls has he had access to? In or out of the theater & sciobotland. The sciobots are showing such bad judgement when it comes to these guys - he is not a registered sex offender but still not good PR to have him as a representative of what sciobots are/do.

    I wonder how many other sex-offenders, registered or not, are lurking in the sciobot world? That would be a good article - come on reporters!

    Maybe it's time for employing chaperones to be back in fashion. Although not quite with the same purpose as traditionally.

    well you have a point - but then is a 17 year old with a 50+ man any better?

    A person I knew way back in my growing years was 18 and had a 15 year old girlfriend (this was in England) and he was convicted of statutory rape and did 6 months inside and was on probation for 2 more years. they did end up getting married.
