Criminal Charges For Consensual Sex in West Virginia?

Out of Mason County, West Virginia comes this news blurb that is lacking in crucial details. Eric Haynes, 35, of Milton, has been arrested and charged with incest.

Troopers say the incidents with an adult female relative took place four different times between 2004 and 2006 at residences in Mason County and Milton.

Since the blurb says the other person is an adult, and does not indicate Haynes was charged with sexual assault or rape, are we to conclude this was consensual sex? If so, why has he been arrested at all? Will his lover be arrested and charged as well?

Why are taxpayer resources being wasted interfering in the consensual sex lives of adults? Charge rapists with rape.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
