In the state of Missouri, a female child is considered an adult by the age of 17 & a male by the age of 18. So why all the chaos? It's not statutory rape...it's an affair between 2 adults....

Seems like someone may be jealous & just trying to cause a little chaos?

The charges have been dropped against the Joplin cop - because he married the girl! She's now his wife and cannot be forced to testify against him.

I know Jon. She sent him those pictures and they had been together for a while before that. He is a great guy and is now happily married. I feel he should get his job back.
