Adults Being Prosecuted in Scotland For Consensual Sex

The authorities in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland need to know that it is now 2011, and interfering in the private sex lives of consenting adults has gone the way of the horse and buggy. The case involves and uncle and niece.

Prosecutors say James Seath and Pamela Seath had sex at a flat in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

And what exactly is the problem with that? I notice that no negative consequences are cited.

The pair deny the allegations against them.

They shouldn’t have to be put into this position in the first place.

On Tuesday Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court heard that lawyers representing Pamela Seath, 25, are challenging the admissibility of crucial DNA evidence in the case.

James Seath, 38, of St Kilda Crescent, Kirkcaldy, and Pamela Seath, of Saunders Street, Kirkcaldy, both pled not guilty on indictment to one charge each of incest.

What a waste of resources, prosecuting these two.

The charges allege that they had sexual intercourse despite being related by blood as uncle and niece.

Why is this is crime?

The article doesn’t explain whether James is the brother of Pamela’s mother or father. I also notice that no other family members are mentioned in the article. Somebody must have ratted them out.
