What attracts two people? Arguably not knowing things about the other is a big turn on. When we meet someone new, the mystery of who they are, what they offer us, what may happen between us… these thoughts are often more enticing than the truth. Fantasy, imagination, conjecture.
People pretend to be what they aren’t. What they wish they were. What they once were. What they will never be. What they think you want them to be. What they want you to think you want.
But the truth about meeting someone, for the first time, with the hopes of a sexual encounter, is that you have no idea what you will actually find.
So the police CREATE a scenario. They set it up thinking that THEY KNOW what someone wants. But what the police don’t take into consideration is that the other party may be lying as well. Or maybe they do, knowing there is NO WAY anyone will believe anything they say.
Which takes me to another kind of a ‘peel’. After the sex appeal, and the slippery peel, we arrive at the legal ‘appeal’.
On January 23rd, 2019 – the appellate court of washington state overturned a case very similar to Jace’s where Ken Chapman had been convicted by jury trial on attempted rape of a child and immoral communication with a child.
” We reverse Chapman’s conviction for attempted first degree rape of a child and attempted commercial sex abuse of a minor, affirm his conviction for communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion”
We applaud the wisdom of these judges and wish Mr Chapman luck in resolving his situation in a much more reasonable fashion than his previous sentence of over 10 years!
