    I have to say that is too harsh. They are trying to make an example out of him.

    Harsh as much as people want to believe at 15 you're still a child you aren't. At 15 you are VERY capable of making your own decisions you are a teenager and maybe you don't always make the right ones but being sexually involved with a man with children? Any 15 year old in the western society knows that's wrong

    I think this is the only topic I've ever agreed with Katie Hopkins on.

    Katie Hopkins comments have certainly given a mixed response, some people agreeing while others saying she is basically condoning peados

    Very harsh. A year at most would be suitable.

    It's funny how feminists, despite supposedly being all for equality, stay silent on the much harsher sentencing men receive and the sexism of the legal system in general

    He was also found in possession of animal porn, but not prosecuted. I don't have a link handy, mainly because I don't want to know too many details about the animal porn and am not going back to look lol.

    Not sure about the details of the case, but sex with a minor is simply not excusable. It's not like there was a shortage of women he could have had consensual sex with, examples should be made of these people.

    He is a complete idiot with terrible morals but he isn't a paedophile and he doesn't deserve to go to jail.

    Everyone should be aware of this:

    "When the victim is 13 or over, but under 16, no offence is committed if the victim consents and the defendant believes, on reasonable grounds, that the child is at least 16. Simply taking the victim's word for his or her age may not be enough. Offenders under 18 commit a lesser offence with lower penalties" according to the Sexual Offences Act 2003.

    Based on what I've heard through the court proceedings, Adam Johnson knew she was under 16 years of age.

    This Act covers rape, sexually penetration, or sexual touches.
