A 17-year-old North Carolina quarterback is charged with possession of sexual images of a minor. The minor is himself. But he is being charged as an adult. So he’s an adult for purposes of facing the law…the law being that you can’t have sexual images of non-adults.

It’s a sexting case, and he also is charged with having sexual images of his 16-year-old girlfriend. She, too, was charged with having sexual images of herself and her boyfriend. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor

If convicted, or even if he tries also to plead down, he likely will be on a sex-offender registry for the rest of his life.

This is not justice. This is insanity.
