Give me a break

It wasn't very long ago that behavior like this might get you a trip to the nearest USMC recruiter.

In the most recent case, Jagla was charged with one count of sexual assault of a student by school staff, a felony that carries a possible six-year prison term.

According to the criminal complaint, the sexual assault involved indecent touching by Jagla, who coached freshmen boys basketball, at Jagla's residence on Jan. 19 while the two were watching the movie "Knocked Up." Jagla lives with his parents, the complaint says.

The girl said she had given Jagla the movie to watch, the complaint says.

She had been exchanging text messages and instant messages with him since November, the complaint says.

On the night of the incident, Jagla told investigators, he and the girl kissed and he touched her inappropriately over the course of about five minutes.

Call me old fashioned, but I thought the legal term for this was DATING, not sexual assault.

But in today's paper, the MJS compares this guy to the freak who molested 4 boys and another freak who had sex (YES - SEXUAL INTERCOURSE) with a GIRL who was 41 years younger. What an unfair comparison and stupid application of this law. This guy made it to 2nd base, maybe third, and he faces a lifetime labeled as a sexual predator.

A more appropriate comparison would be to this gentleman.
