getting angry yet?
Kansas can punish someone more harshly for having sex with a minor if the minor is of the same sex, the state Court of Appeals ruled today. - Matthew Limon stays in jail! As the court ruled, "the Legislature could have rationally determined that heterosexual sodomy between a child and an adult could be put in a class by itself and be dealt with differently than homosexual sodomy between a child an adult." I guess I'll be reading State v. Limon to see how, in God's name, they rationalized this decision after the Supreme Court "vacated the judgment" last June. What was the point of vacating if he's stuck with the same, ridiculous, 17-year sentence for a consensual blowjob?
