why do people with golden oppertunities find ways to ruin their lives or do things as stupid as this? First round pick, earning a big (well, compared to non professional sports players) salary, and he goes and has sex with a damn 14 year old girl.

Whew! You had me concerned there for a second that it was John Stockton... although I should have known that such a class-act would never do something like that. :)

20 yrs old...no surprise there...not many ppl think about careers and their futures at that age...i know i didn't, and neither did many others that i knew back then...i'm not saying what he did was ok, but its just no surprise, living for the moment instead of thinking about the consequences and repercussions...

<< Litman said the Jazz would arrange for Stevenson to do his community service at the Boys & Girls Club. >>



I'm sorry... but this might not be an appropriate punishment for the crime. What if he is "tempted" again....

Chances are that he didn't have any control over what he was doing. He's mentally ill and needs help. Anyone, at any level in life, with this type of sickness will do whatever they need to do to fill their needs.

The prosecution argued that it was not an appropriate place given the circumstances, and the judge agreed and said if he did it at a club it had to be a boys only club.

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

Oh my god, I need a new monitor, I just spewed my pop all over it.

That's a funny one. Of course he's not responsible. His schlong just came out of his pants and wrapped around his legs and dragged him over to the girl and forced him to do it. Yeah that's it.

You thought wrong. On highschool graduation night (when I was 18), a girl by the name of Sherrie Henschew came through the procession line. This girl was 9th grade, 14 years old and very, very beautiful. She came up to me, threw her arms around me and told me she'd had a crush on me watching me play basketball all through highschool. Then, she tried to kiss me. I thought it was repulsive because she was so young, and pushed her away.

Of course now, that four years is pretty meaniingless, but at the time it was the difference between an adult and a child.

Right...but when you're a big-time NBA star, it doesn't happen to you once in a lifetime...it happens to you 20 or 30 times a day :Q

Doesn't make it right of course...

Wouldn't matter if it happened a hundred times a day, I would still find it repulsive. But then, morals seem to have changed since I was that age, so maybe I'm just out of touch.

FWIW, it's not like he's a pedafile or something.

Also, the sex was consentual, though against the law.

"He's never made any excuses," Litman said. "Since the day after the event he has been apologetic to the young lady, to her parents and to her grandparents. He went over there and told them he didn't mean any disrespect."

Gee, I'm sorry Mr & Mrs Jones, I didn't mean any disrespect by screwing your 14 year old daughter.

The only circumstance under which I would say anything less than castration would be appropriate would be if he didn't know how old she was. I've seen some damn hot 14 year olds, where you are staring happily until you find out they're little kids. They don't look it, they don't act it. But they're 14.

If he knew how old she was, he got off way too easy.

I never said he wasn't responsible, you twit. I was just responding to those who asked how a guy with a great career could mess up like that. Try not being an ass and read first.

Not in the least justifying what he did, but strangely enough in some places the age of consent is 14 whereas in others it's older. In Canada and elsewhere it would have been considered legal as I understand it (had he not got her drunk first that is).

Nonetheless he is a slug and a moron.

Well at first I was kinda ticked. But after reading the whole story I realize he just made a mistake. While at 19 he is too old for a 14 year old right now, its not like he had sex with a ten year old. He also seems to be a pretty good young man. And at that age and in his situation he just failed one of many many tests that none of us will ever face. So I give him a pass hoping that he'll not make the same mistake again. But at 14 years old she's no baby and also knows right from wrong. And it takes guts and some class to go face to face with her parents and apologize. Its not all doom and gloom with him.

<< , its not like he had sex with a ten year old >>



society has determined that 14 year olds aren't accountable enough to decide to consent to sex, so it is the responsibility of adults to not engage them in it

if an adult doesnt take that responsibility seriously, they should be taken out of society until they are ready to be held to the standards

our children need to be protected from takers and predators

if the rest of us aren't willing to protect them, who will????
