    The mother and the daughter (the "victim") both testified on Zach's behalf. The current laws are forcing Zach into isolation, where he can't engage in any of his interests. He's not even allowed a smart phone. How is forcing a 19 year old to give up his chosen career, his family, and his hobbies justice? In what world is that a reasonable punishment? This judge should be removed from his office and punished for issuing a cruel and unusual punishment that does not fit the "crime".

    Zach was deceived by a 14 year old girl. Are our young men supposed to ask for ID before they sleep with a woman? Would that have even helped in this case? What if the girl in question has a fake ID? Since, as the article mentions, there's no defense when your partner lies about their age, I don't see any way that this could have ended in any way but the total ruination of Zach's life, unless he had taken a vow of chastity.

    Is this judge so out of touch with reality that he doesn't understand that people have sex? Why are we punishing people for engaging in sex? Zach is pretty clearly not a predator. Did he show some bad judgement? Sure. Who among us didn't at 19? Is it fair that the mistakes 19 year old you made affect you for the rest of your life, especially when those mistakes didn't harm anyone at all?

      The judge was a straight up cunt. He punished Zach not because he had to, but because he used him as a scapegoat to punish current culture.

      But the judge condemned what he called a culture of “meet, hook-up, have sex, sayonara, totally inappropriate behavior,” according to court documents.

      I can't believe the judge was able to get away with what was obvious bias against the defendant. I honestly hope this decision is appealed.

      My dad (who has been a judge/lawyer for a good 30 years) even agreed that the idea of 25 years restriction from the internet is insane, for Zach to get that on a guilty plea, the judge must have been gunning for years and years in jail. My dad also said that if the judge decided the "crime" didn't warrant any jail time at all, 25 years on the registry did not fit at all. You can't live without the internet now a days. The judge stripped Zach of his education and pretty much any career or job that pays above minimum wage.

      I'm honestly surprised we haven't had a case of a "serial statutory rapist" yet. There's no stopping a 14-16 year old girl from lying to a bunch of men to get them convicted as sex offenders.
