I wonder why the OP feels some sort of duty toward this "almost-but-not-quite" child molester.
I have seen this in real life. My extended network of acquaintances includes a guy who is a registered sex offender (the specific incident involved exposing himself to two 10-year-old girls and i think it was plea-bargained down to "lewd & lascivious behaviour"; I'm not sure what "level" that is). There are people (such as myself) who have "zero-tolerance" for this sort of thing, and there are others who think that this person should be tolerated in the name of being "open-minded".
I don't understand it. One would think that with over 7 billion people in the world, you could find someone better than this. He's the "monster" - not the OP.
