July 10th Update:
A revised version of Jackman’s article was posted later on Wednesday deleting some areas and adding new ones.
I’ve inserted the additional paragraphs and noted what was removed below.
When I posted the original article about this unbelievable case on July 4, I expected to see numerous media outlets pick up the case. I knew it was a holiday weekend but news stories don’t stop just because of a holiday.
But for 5 days, not one additional article, until today (see below).
This Washington Post article expands a bit on what has occurred so far in this case.
Below we learn that on July 1st, Foster said Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Claiborne Richardson told her that her client must either plead guilty or police would obtain another search warrant “for pictures of his erect penis,” for comparison to the evidence from the teen’s cell phone. Foster asked how that would be accomplished and was told that “we just take him down to the hospital, give him a shot and then take the pictures that we need.”
That’s right, plead guilty to child pornography instead of going to trial or the State will force a minor to get an erection and then take photos of it!
This is an abuse of power!
This is unequal justice under the law by only charging and threatening sexual abuse and humiliation of the 17 year old male when the 15 year old female initiated by sending the first nude image!
And ……..its State sponsored sexual abuse and humiliation of a minor!
