SportsFanLive's Jenna Laine has the exclusive. It seems that Washington, now 24, is a registered sex offender in Texas, and according to Laine's sources, it's because he was convicted in May 2003 of having consensual sex with his 15-year-old sister. It's a sad story. A former coach says Washington comes from a "dysfunctional" home and that he "skipped a phase, so to speak, in his emotional development.

I think making somebody into a registered sex offender for having sex with their sister who is 2 year thier junior pretty harsh. Incest is pretty nasty but I don't see him as a threat to society. I wouldn't make the dude put a sign in his yard.

After seeing he's from Texas it's makes a lot more sense, I'm suprised they didn't give him the chair.

Well he'll feel right at home with the Carolina Panthers since "Carolina" in the name also represents the state of South Carolina

Remember that Gastonia is on the NC side, not SC.

What's the world coming to when you can't even f*ck your sister?

Yes, I'm kidding... settle down.

I actually agree with SouthNarolina. Don't get me wrong, incest is gross, but having consensual sex as a teenager with a younger sister less than two years younger than him shouldn't lump him with rapists and child molesters imo. The sex offender tag will stick with him for the rest of his life. Hell, the article said that he and his sister are on good terms (hopefully not too good, though) and talk often.

I agree that you shouldn't automatically be lumped in with those types for this, but there is a chance that his sister could be lying about it to protect him, so it should be determined on a case-by-case basis, which hopefully it was...

Tinderbox. Did you know that you can be charged with child pornography if you are under the age of 18 and you possess nude pictures of someone under the age of eighteen? I know it is off subject but strange law IMO.

^That law was used in Law & Order: SVU once.

That's possible, since it is pretty common in these type of cases. However, based on the more in-depth article about this case, I shall give this guy the benefit of the doubt until evidence otherwise shows up.

Since it was consensual and they were only two years apart then yeah I find it pretty harsh. It sure is nasty but putting a tag on somebody that essentially ruins their life is pretty harsh. Every once in a while you read about a few confused siblings doing something like this, it's not abusive. Probably has some psychological ramifications but not the same kind that stems from abuse. But being that this happened in texas I'm not suprised.

I consider a sex offender somebody that I would feel is at a danger of hurting someone or sexually abusing them. I don't feel like he poses that risk.

If it's incest between a parent and child then I think that's appropriate. But, two kids who were admittedly from a messed up home don't deserve that kind of punishment. That kind of action needs therapy not a criminal charge.
