Add More Transperancy To And Relax Age Of Consent Laws sign now

This is a petition to relax consent laws relating to minors of questionable, post-pubescent age, on a federal level. (Roughly 15 to 18 years of age) This is a call for increased transparency in consent laws for all states. These laws are too harsh and threaten to become even harsher, due to one-sided, hysterical arguments, mindlessly escalating these laws to the point where they've become modern day witch hunts.

There needs to be a voice of opposition and sensibility in regards to consent of questionable ages and it needs to be Federalized so that there is no confusion in regards to these laws.

Dixon was set to graduate at the top of his Pepperell High School class in Lindale, Ga., his 3.96 GPA and National Honor Society membership enough to earn a football scholarship to Vanderbilt University. Instead he wound up serving 15 months (2003-04) after a jury found him guilty of statutory rape and aggravated child molestation of a 15-year-old girl.

During the trial in May 2003, Dixon's lawyer said the girl, a white classmate of Dixon's, told Dixon her father would "kill them both" if he found out about the two being together. Dixon, 18 years old at the time, maintained what took place was on the school grounds was consensual sex, not rape.

Cases like these need to stop.
