There is major conflict in justice and right and wrong in society. In one stance Deseret News reports "Protecting children: Identifying signs of a child being groomed for sexual abuse" read article 865597658" reporting how underage children are groomed and abused. Yet in another stance a horrible crime was committed by a teen that was abused by a 27 year adult which condoned and supported by other adults. Yet, she should rot in jail for 70 years? Should she be held accountable for actions absolutely, was her actions influenced by a sexual relationship, yes. Her illicit relationship must be considered in the actions that were taken by her and her murderous abuser.
