Hook up with a sex offender
The judge in Anderson’s case was angry that he'd used the internet to meet a girl.He says that “it was totally inappropriate behavior” and sentenced Anderson to 90 days in jail, five years probation and 25 years on the sex offender registry. It seems like a bad dream I haven't woke up from yet, “added Anderson.Well, things got real heated for 19-year-old Zach Anderson after hooking up with a girl claiming to be 17 on the dating app "Hot or Not." After having sex, Anderson learned the girl was really 14 years old.
Well, here’s living proof that a quickie just might leave you with lifelong consequences.
A 19 year old Indiana kid was just released from three months in jail and will spend the next 25 years as a registered sex offender because he hooked up with a girl he met on a dating app who told him she was 17 but was really 14. There is no excuse for this whatsoever.”Local politicians jumped on the app-dissing, sex-shaming bandwagon, too.
That’s an intense story as it is, but the really weird twist is that the judge and prosecutor seemed to take the biggest issue not with the age difference but with the fact that he used a dating app. State senator Rick Jones told the that “society, over several decades, has become looser.
This is what the judge said at a sentencing hearing, according to :"You went online, to use a fisherman’s expression, trolling for women, to meet and have sex with. People are meeting online, and that creates all sorts of problems.
Now, people have all these crazy apps where you can locate people in your vicinity where people want to have a relationship.
You should be very careful.”And because this judge and others are super judge-y about hookup culture, 19-year-old Zachary Anderson spent 90 days in jail.
He is now barred from using the internet for the next five years, which means he had to drop out of his college program.
He was arrested, convicted and listed with thousands of other sexual predators.
The girl in question wrote a letter apologizing to Anderson for not sharing her real age at the time, but that still wasn't enough to get him off the hook.
