Report: NFL Draft Prospect Once Put His Tremendous Upside In His Sister

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

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...
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.

You can't be serious.

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.

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.

Ditto. It's gross, but it's not anything as vicious as a rapist.

I don't that incest, though disgusting, should come with a sex offender label that is going to follow you for life, especially between minors. Kids do weird poo sometimes if they get caught up in a moment.

If anything the definition of sex offender needs to be less broad. The majority of people, when they hear registered sex offender, think child rapist, or regular rapist, or some kind of dangerous person. Incest isn't innocent, but it's not dangerous unless your family is purposefully interbreeding. Even then it's only dangerous to your family. That should be illegal.

Now wherever these two move, they will have to put signs up in their yards and answer "I had sex with my sibling with I was a teen" whenever a neighbor asks them what they did. That's just embaressing.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
