Kentucky Still Prosecuting Consenting Adults

This absurd waste of resources and violation of civil rights was reported by Kenneth Hart at
In an unrelated case, the grand jury indicted a South Shore man and his adult stepdaughter for allegedly engaging in an unlawful sexual relationship.

As we've seen before, the prejudice against consanguinamory has been extended to prosecute lovers who aren't genetic relatives.
Roger D. Howard, 44, and Clara P. Walters, 21, both of Little White Oak Road, both were charged with incest, a Class C felony that carries a five- to 10-year prison sentence.

And who is the victim???
The indictments, which resulted from a KSP investigation, allege Howard and Walters engaged in “sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse” between April 1 and July 1 of 2012. Under Kentucky law, sex between a stepparent and stepchild is considered incest. The charge A, B or C felon, depending on the age of the victim, whether force was involved and whether the victim suffered serious injury. Howard and Walters were charged with the least-serious variety because both are consenting adults.

It shouldn't be a crime in the first place. What a waste of resources.
