There is a social double standard towards male victims of child abuse, but this isn't a good pair of cases to put alongside each other. Jeremy Forrest didn't get 5.5 years for having a relationship with a 15 year old. He got 4.5 years (times five, to be served concurrently) for the sexual offences and 1 year for child abduction (to be served consecutively) because he took her to France.

The sentencing explanation is here http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...g-remarks.html

I personally think that if the nit had not taken her to France, any prosecution for sex offences would have resulted in a lower sentence, but I have no evidence save a gut feeling.
