It is easy to understand the anger, the frustration.
The boy, who is now a man, who took the picture of the girl who will now never become a woman (but who still can't be named -- and that is part of the frustration), will not go to jail.
Instead, Judge Gregory Lenehan Thursday sentenced the now-20-year-old to write an apology to the parents of the girl, to be delivered through his youth worker, and to provide a DNA sample for a national database. The judge also urged him to attend a course on sexual harassment. But, after 12 months of good behaviour, he will be considered discharged.
His life will go on…
