Lionel Tate finally gets a new trial
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) -- A Florida appellate court ordered a new trial Wednesday for a teen-age boy who is serving a life sentence for killing a 6-year-old playmate when he was 12-years-old, raising questions about the Florida law that allows child murderers to be locked away with no hope of parole.
Tell me this...how is it that a 12 year old is mentally an adult when it's about murder, but a child when it's about sex? What is the point of even having the 'age of consent' law, if a preteen is deamed an adult? Isn't the kid accusing Michael Jackson of molestation (which he did not do, btw) 13? According to Florida, a 13 year old is an adult, so what is so wrong about having sex with one? I hate all these inconsistancies. Tastes like cardboard.
