Prince Andrew Addresses Underage Sex Claims
In the news Prince Andrew Addresses Underage Sex Claims. What claims you ask? Not another case of royal infidelity? Kind of. He has been accused of having sex with a 17 year old prostitute 14 years ago. The New York Post is reporting that Virginia Roberts, now a 31-year-old married mother of three swore, in graphic detail, in an affidavit filed last week in Florida federal court, that "she was recruited by British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell to serve the sexual whims of American billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein and those of his pals." It comes as no big surprise that she claims Bill Clinton visited Epstein’s "orgy island."
Andrew is Prince Charles' younger brother. Charles is the epitome of maturity and stability while Andrew has always had a reputation for being a fruit cake. His nickname was Randy Andy in the British press. Sadly there appears to be some merit to the allegations. So much so the New York Post states that It’s time for Prince Andrew to man up. Under age prostitutes, paid very well to service the British and American elite. Unfortunately, it goes beyond that.
Vice dot com is reporting that this under age sex ring extended to child rape involving victims as young as 12 years old. They quote a Guardian article where Scotland Yard states there are merit to those allegations as well. Vice reports that "A man who goes only by the pseudonym Nick came out to the media and the authorities to allege that he was the victim of rape and abuse by high-profile political figures in Britain in the 1970s and 1980s."
Nick went on to tell the BBC that children who were swept up in this VIP ring were brutally abused, and would be attacked if they did not obey the men who were holding them hostage. The New York Post refers to Jeffrey Epstein as a convicted pedophile and registered sex offender. In 2008, Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to felony solicitation and procuring a person under the age of 18 for prostitution. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail. The Daily beast refers to Epstein as a Hedge fund mogul after his 2007 plea bargain. Donald Trump is one of Epstein's associates. Imagine that.
I am however, a little bit confused about jurisdiction. In New York State the age of consent is 17. In Florida state it is 18. So if the allegations are true and Randy Andy had consensual sex with a 17 year old prostitute in New York State 14 years ago, there doesn't seem to be any criminal charges just another huge embarrassment for the royal family. I'm not sure why the affidavit was sworn in a Florida court not a New York court since the act was alleged to have occurred in New York State.
Don't get me wrong. An old man having sex with a 17 year old girl is indeed pretty messed up. In Canada it was even worse. The age of consent was 14. We had all these 40 year old freaky pedophiles from Idaho and Texas coming here to take multiple 14 year old brides and there was nothing the law could do about it. If I'm not mistaken the conservative government recently fixed that and raised the age to 16. I think the intent of the law is for a consensual act between two 16 year olds not a 16 year old and a 40 year old freak.
"In New York State, a person who is under age 16 but older than 13 years old can consent to sex with a person who is no more than 4 years older; the crime of the 3rd degree rape only happens when a person over the age of 21 has sex with a person who is under seventeen years old or younger."
However, my blog is not a British tabloid. None of this concerns me. Jeffrey Epstein is definitely a pedophile but Prince Andrew is just an air head. What does concern me is the allegations coming from Nick about being raped and abused as a child by a child pedophile ring. That concerns me. Non consensual acts involving violence and murder. Like the Pickton farm.
Exaro News is reporting that MP pedophiles were untouchable.
Sadly MSN News is reporting that a Spanish judge charged 10 Catholic priests over the alleged sexual abuse of a teenage altar boy, court papers showed Wednesday, in a case in which Pope Francis intervened. The victim alleges "continuous sexual abuse by a group of priests of the diocese of Granada, from 2004 when he was 14 to 2007 when he was 17."
