Lenore Skenazy: Sex offender or boy next door? September 11, 2015
This should tell you something about how meaningless and capricious the "sex offender" label is: Zach Anderson, the Elkhart, Indiana, 19-year-old labeled a sex offender for having consensual sex with a girl who said she was 17 (but turned out to be 14), has had his sentence vacated. That means it's as if his case had never been tried. It will be heard anew by a different judge.
