So much minimizing, rationalizing, jock sniffing. University with a CYA release. Lawyer with a dicey tweet.

 

The only way this is no big deal is if he never sent the video. If he sent it, in any circumstance then.....goodbye.

 

Art Briles called and said we should wait until all the facts are gathered. Urban Meyer thinks things are being taken out of context.

It's startling how people are trying to normalize child pornography.  This thread is like the Twilight Zone.

Minors film and take photos of and send each other sexually explicit content of themselves or their peers ALL the time. How would you assess their behavior? Monstrous? Immoral? 16 year old kids acting like 16 year old kids and being interested in other 16 year old kids? 

 

In one realistic scenario MoWa being just over 18 doesn't magically remove him from the childish and immature and normal situation and context of heartbreak and hurt and living in a 2018 teenage digital media reality from two years prior that's still fresh and impactful.

 

If we want to stick to legal definitions over half of teenagers are in possession of child porn. Which is illegal and could be prosecuted. Some states even have laws against simply viewing child porn, even if you're a minor. Should 15 year old girls be criminally prosecuted for sending their boyfriends nudes or viewing dick picks some idiot at their school sent them?

 

Quote

 


But what about a minor who takes selfies and sends them discreetly to another teen? What if the receiver then forwards the photos to others? Have they violated any laws? In many states, the answer is yes.


... 

The common quirk in the laws is that there is no exception for taking or distributing sexually explicit pictures of oneself. Thus, a high school student sending a racy seflie to a boyfriend or girlfriend could subject both themselves and the receiver to prosecution for child pornography.

I'm not a fan of our legal system, too many criminals get off free when they are guilty and too many who are innocent get locked up.  

 

I am a fan of justice and natural law.  

 

Ignoring everything outside of Maurice's control (being in the video, making the video, etc...) and only focusing on Maurice's actions alone (keeping the video, sending it to the girl) is more than enough in my court of what is right and what is wrong with this world for a conviction.  I don't care how good or great a football player you are, you simply do not do that as a decent Human being and that is certainly not the case with him as he has proven with his actions.  I don't care about the legality of it all, he is guilty in my book and should be immediately expelled from the school.

I find it interesting that many comments/commenters are referring to the normalcy of teens videoing and the typical behavior including sharing pics, videos etc.  Normal doesn't make it right.  It's normal to sometimes have too many beers and then drive.  Still shouldn't do it - it puts you and others at risk and there are ramifications when you are caught.  There are many things considered typical but that doesn't make them right, nor does it mean that it shouldn't be punished.

 

If this wasn't our top RB and was a kid at your kid's school, if he had sent a video to your son what would you expect your son to do?  If the video was of your daughter what would you think was appropriate?  If you were a teacher and this involved your students how would you handle it and what would you feel is right?

Less than 24 hours in and many have rendered a guilty verdict.  Amazing since only 1 side of the story has been released.  I would rather make one informed decision based on all of the evidence than an evolving verdict as more information is released.

It is common behavior.  Does it make it right? No.  

 

If it wad a normal kid they would probably receive probation or suspended sentence and move on.  Since the kid is question is a higher profile kid the stakes are higher and the scrutiny will be elevated.  

 

I would hope my sons and daughter have a fairly solid moral compass from all the work we have put in with them as children.  Pray, i dont have to deal with a situation like this with my children.

Here’s the fallacy of your entire post.  You bring in adults and use them to draw your comparisons. Drinking and driving is illegal, but children that do it under 18 are handled completely differently. My children get sent videos of kids having sex with each other and you ask how I, an adult, would handle it. My daughter is in the video and you ask if I, and adult, would think it’s appropriate. If I, an adult teacher, knew about this, how would I handle it? We aren’t dealing with rational adults in any of the scenarios listed here. My heart was broken when I was 19. For a long time I can remember wanting to do crazy, borderline insane irrational things to try to get my ex back. I knew these things were not logical but I still thought about them. Seriously, if I would have had a smartphone at that time I may have ruined a lot, and I certainly wouldn’t have left that phase with even a shred of dignity. Instead I am lucky to only be embarrassed by the internal memories of these thoughts. I can’t believe what a fool I was at 16-20 and I’m not about to pull a holier than thou approach when considering those that still are.

I was under the impression we were similar ages. Did smart phones exist when you were 18?

 

I am 100% sure I would have received dick pics from my 18 year old boyfriend when I was 16 if smartphones had existed back then. But I guess it wouldn't have been child pornography since the ages were reversed. But if the ages had been reversed, I still would have received them.

The whole app monitoring thing reminded me of something that happened to me.  I did not know this at first but my wife had her phone and Ipad linked together and she could message from both at anytime.  One night I was on her ipad messing around and she got a message from a really close friend of ours.  The message popped up saying  " I got them done".  I went ahead and looked to see what it was about and you guessed it,  she sent my wife a whole picture collage of her new boobs.  

 

You wanna go ahead and forward those to me that would be great

I didn’t have a smartphone but I did have a digital camera, computer, and internet and was willing to put some work in to attain 8.8/10 rating on ratemyrack.com. As I’ve said above, my 18-24 years would have been much worse had I come of age in 2010+.

The case was referred to a judge in mid-December. Unless it happened recently, charges have not yet been filed. They're anticipating charges in that article, likely because a source in the DA has told them they're pending, but until the judge issues the order, no charges.

There is something inherently wrong with considering one 16 year old in possession of another 16 year old's (their girlfriend or boyfriend) picture/video as being guilty of child pornography. We give these kids smart phones, oftentimes before they are even teenagers, and then some act shocked and disgusted and outraged when immature people do immature things with that technology. Yet some of these same people simply call laws against marijuana stupid and ill advised. Tar and feather one while ignoring/laughing about the other. I think I'll need a much taller horse to see the world the way some of you do.

I have been having the same response when someone calls this child porn....a 60 yr old man can watch dirty videos of 18 yr olds all day every day and never have a legal issue but an 18 yr old senior in HS cant have a 15 or 16 yr old picture or video of his gf/ex or whatever. One seems way more disgusting to me.

I'm guessing many of the people throwing around the label trying to force it to tell the entire story are grown ups who watch 18 year old porn stars. If we're talking about morality, I don't see much of a difference.

They were both in high school I guess. Heck when I was a senior my gf was 16 and I was 18. I am sure many here dated women a couple years younger than them. All I know is when I hear child porn I think of dirty sick bastards with pictures of little kids and s#!t. Not a teenager with a video of a teenager.

It will be interesting to know what officials at UNL were told when contacted. I doubt we will ever know. It could be they were merely told there's an issue involving Maurice's ex-girlfriend and just need to interview Maurice as his name has came up in our investigation and nothing else - OR - it could be that Maurice is being investigated for revenge porn and child porn and he is on your University. First scenario the University probably handled it the right way, the second not so much an could open up UNL other legal issues.

I agree and I would lean towards this being the case as well considering the 'revenge' charge would be considered a misdemeanor, and the 'possession' charge is I think a non-violent felony.

 

I was not able to find and confirm if possession of CP is considered a non-violent felony, though. I think it's non-violent.

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. She hasn't filed charges yet.  Lot's of stuff pending in the situation. 

 

As of now it's video of three kids which apparently show sex acts. Nobody has seen the video, so we can't be sure about what it shows. If it shows underage sex acts, even consensual, distribution of that video is a crime.

I don't need a court to tell me what is or what isn't an assault. If you're not a female assault victim, you don't understand the emotional barriers involved in reporting an assault. Just because she hasn't reported it, yet, doesn't mean it didn't happen. PTSD isn't just for war veterans. 

 

It should be easy to confirm whether Maurice sent her the video or not. If he sent it, I don't want to hear another word about "high character". Legally guilty or not, sending that to anyone is not what I consider "high character".

The problem is that the sexual assault has not been defined or prosecuted even while a video of it has existed in public hands for almost 3 years.  You have to ask yourself how THAT could ever happen.  And one of the answers is, it’s not a sexual assault at all.  If the video isn’t clear enough for the legal system to make a case after 3 years, why would we assume it was clear enough for Maurice to draw that conclusion?

I don't need a court to tell me what is or what isn't an assault. If you're not a female assault victim, you don't understand the emotional barriers involved in reporting an assault. Just because she hasn't reported it, yet, doesn't mean it didn't happen. PTSD isn't just for war veterans. 

 

It should be easy to confirm whether Maurice sent her the video or not. If he sent it, I don't want to hear another word about "high character". Legally guilty or not, sending that to anyone is not what I consider "high character".

She did report it.  3 years ago. Only how is she considering if she should pursue it as an assault.

My God people, a 15 year old girl was sexually assaulted

 

No, we don't know that.  And, if she was, we don't know that Mo knew that.  We do know he wasn't involved with it if she was.
