Yes.  That is exactly what I am saying.

Does it matter where he was located when this took place? For example, if he was still in Texas could California come after him if he wasnt in the state?

Perhaps since he SENT it TO California, it's subject to those laws?

I hope he has already contacted a lawyer.  I would think, if charges are filed, they would have to prove that he actually hit the button and sent the text.  

 

Seems like an ahole move but I would have no problem with suspending him for a few games and making it a learning experience.

Not true. Your phone, your responsibility. 

 

If it were that easy, nobody would be charged with anything.

Depends on what Frost does and has done. So far as we know the coaches found out about the allegations last fall, and they haven't done anything yet.

I think she hurt him when they broke up and maybe this video surfaced and took him by surprise and was the reason they broke up. It’s not like out of revenge for being hurt he posted the video online.  

 

 

There are definitely scenarios, like this one, where Washington isn't quite the a$$h@!e it looks like he is. The fact they dated is a pretty big factor, IMO. And we don't know yet that he knew it was rape or knew that she'd accused the guy(s) of rape. If videos were posted of your SO having sex with someone else, I think it would be a fairly normal reaction. And a 17-18 year old isn't thinking of a 15 year old he used to date and probably had sex with as a child.

This is true, and why a lot of these laws, while well-intentioned, are going to have to be adapted for the age we live in.  And, preferably, written by people who understand the culture these kids live in.

Yeah...just from what I hear pretty much everyday...I think most kids have pics of girls from their school or other schools exposing boobs or dick picks of HS students.

That was my first thought. There is no way 15,16,17,18 year olds all over aren't sending photos of a sexual nature to themselves. Obviously that isn't the only issue with this but it's one of them.

I have told virtually every one of my students to not share anything between their personal phone and their school-issued laptops for this very reason.

I was going to bring this very thing up but didn't feel like being attacked by the super people.  But it true.  So very very true.  

 

The amount of boob/dick pics that go around between "minors" would probably make most people shocked.

The legal system differentiates between adults and minors, and the crime is a misdemeanor, so I think it's probably ok the way it's written, but we'll see.

nope 

Then I think you're good.

 

But you might be confused?  Charges against Washington would be filed in California not in Texas or Nebraska.

 

So by your example, if there is a law against someone misgendering a person in California and you did that from the comfort of your home in Iowa, the charges would be in California.

The girl in this situation was 15, however.

Since police had this video of alleged sexual assault why wasn’t one of the boys in the video charged with sexual assault instead of distributing pornography? How stupid would one be to have sex with someone, make a video of it and then share it with your friends if it was sexual assault?  I don’t pretend to know the psychology of someone that was raped but I’m sure the girl was aware that the video was being sent around so I would think that would be the time to let it be known that the video being shared was of her being sexually assaulted and not consensual.

It's not much different than making terroristic threats over the phone between Iowa & California. It's still a crime & you'd still be charged. The crime (I believe) is said to have occurred where the threat is heard, so you'd be subject to California laws. 

 

Again, maybe a lawyer could clarify that for us, but I'm reasonably certain the same principle applies.

Possibly because those facts haven't been cleared up to begin with, haven't gone to trial, or something of that nature. I'm not sure. I couldn't find answers to that very question in the original article in the OP of this thread.

Seriously stupid of Washington to send this message to her, though. Holy s***.

That was mentioned in the article. She did not report it as rape because the felt ashamed. She is still considering whether or not to press sexual assault charges to this day.

That part was there, yes.

But that doesn't mean that it couldn't still come about from a litigation standpoint of the two other guys.

One scenario I can think of here:

 

Mo dated said girl in the video. The video he has is what prompted them to break up and he kept it (for whatever reason). Maybe when videoed originally it was consensual, after it started being distributed the girl changed her mind that it wasn't. I dont know, but it happens all the time. She reaches out to him a couple years later because now she sees his success at NU. He's still heartbroke over the ordeal and responds with the video, essentially sticking it in her face. She then decides to turn him into police for revenge porn/child porn etc. as a get back at ya moment.

 

This scenario sounds more realistic to me. Doesnt make it much better. He's gonna have to learn he's in a pretty high profile place and people are gonna come at you. Need to learn some situation awareness. Could have just responded with a "wrong number" and left it at that. But now he has a serious problem on his hand.

Investigations take time. Per the article, investigators have tried to talk to Washington and he hasn't been willing to so far.

So....for all the people who think this is a slam dunk case and he should be thrown off the team and his life irreparably damaged.

 

This alleged assault happened several years ago.

 

He sent the video in March of 2018 (11 months ago).

 

California officials knew about this long enough ago that Frost found out about it at least 4 months ago.

 

So....if it's a slam dunk that he is guilty of child porn or whatever, why isn't he arrested yet?  

 

I know someone who was arrested for child pornography.  No, the FBI didn't wait to gain permission to "interview him".

 

I'll wait till more information comes out.

10 years ago he had broken no laws.

 

Possession and distribution of child pornography was definitely a felony ten years ago.

Again, definitions are important. This is not "video of the assault."  It's not an assault until it's shown in court to be an assault.

 

As far as Washington goes, the matter of whether or not this was sexual assault or something consensual is probably irrelevant. He's accused of possession and distribution of CP/revenge porn, not assault.

Random side note, but our county's public school system has been pushing a "responsible" social media campaign this year, partially because of an uptick in stuff like this. I appears that teenagers are not the most bright... who knew?

So we had to process this situation for 4 pages, but now we are coming around to some reasonable thoughts about this case.

 

Awful situation and stupid decisions? Yes.

An actual criminal disposition? No.

Mo's future? Uncertain.

Huskerboard? In a frenzy.
