A not-so-uncommon story:
The sexual assault victim — a girl of 16. She’s now 37 years old, happily married to the love of her life, and the mother of three children.
The attacker — a man who was unaware his victim was just shy of the age of consent and had consensual sex with her. As a result, he had to register with the Texas Public Sex Offender Registry. He’s now married to his teenage sweetheart and is the father of the victim’s children.
That’s right — the victim and her attacker got married soon after the girl’s mother, learning of the couple’s romance, reported the “assault” to prosecutors.
