Woman Pleads Not Guilty to Incest Charge

Here’s an update on a case out of Nova Scotia in which adults are being prosecuted for consensual sex with each other.

A 26-year-old woman charged with sleeping with her brother has pleaded not guilty to a charge of incest.

The woman appeared before Judge Raymond Morse on Monday with her counsel, Robert Moores.

Judge Raymond Morse, don’t you feel silly presiding over a case about private matter between consenting adults? Dismiss the incest charges. It is a victimless “crime” we are talking about. Prosecuting consenting adults for sex is a throwback that needs to stop.

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.
