American Accused Of Unlawful Encounter With 13 Year Old Girl On Pattaya Beach

Recommended Posts

.......... Im fairly sure also that the legal age for consent is 18 in Thailand.

You would be wrong.

Normal age of consent is 15 in Thailand, although parents retain 'ownership rights' until age 20 under some conditions.

Formula I was taught (maybe from my father) is the ideal age of your wife should be 1/2 your age + 7.

Are you Robert Anson Heinlein's kid?

Great link! There's 30 years between me and my GF but I guess "rules" are meant to be broken!

In a case like this, is the accused held on remand or given bail?

If convicted, would he be deported (after serving time in Thailand) and, if so, would he face charges in the US?

Bail is possible, if convicted it means blacklisting.

There will be no charges in the US if he is sentenced in Thailand. You cannot be convicted twice for the same offence. If he would skip bail and flee the country to the US he could face prosecution in the US.

Are you sure about that? He would not have been tried and convicted twice in a US court of law.

What exactly is an unlawful encounter?

The Pattaya One article says he was charged with a engaging in a lewd act with a minor under 15. They would need evidence of penetration to charge him with statutory rape but evidence from the police, no doubt with photographs, that they were naked together is enough to convict him of the offence he has been charged with and spares the girl too. Also no need for her to cooperate with the police at all as there is no innocent explanation. The guy is definitely toast. Even though the girl looks quite tall, he probably knew what he was doing, since he picked her up from a place on the street that is notorious for underage prostitutes, rather than from the relative comfort of a bar.

This kind of story is all too common but it would be nice if the police arrested whoever put her on the street to make money for them too. But then they probably pay good money to the police stay in business and also cooperate with the police when they want to set up a sting operation like this one. Large massage parlours are also said to keep special underage delicacies aside for senior police officers who like to receive both cash and kind.

So what was the out come? one or two posters said they knew him, did he make bail or still locked up?

Thats the good thing about Thailand, in most cases like this you can make up the outcome of these kind of arrests for yourself as non of the so called newspapers in Pattaya have the brains to have someone stationed at the courthouse, to inform the rapid public of such outcomes.

I think you have a much better chance of finding an underage prostitute in a bar, maybe it had that notoriety 20 years ago but most of the beach prostitutes are over 30 these days and they dont seem to be replacing them

He probably bailed out or bribed the local police to get out.

Look at all the unannounced beach sweeps .... *NOT ONE* underage girl caught plying her trade on the beach in how many years??? I've been on the beach when they pull these, and officers swoop in from all over to check the ID of every girl.

If it is so prevalent like many believe, why can't the police find them? Underage sex *STORIES* are what give the police the biggest difficulties and bad press. So it follows that CATCHING underage would be a big promotional benefit for them.

Yet, they don't catch any underage girls on the beach.

COMPARE that to the bars and gogos, where NUMEROUS arrests have occurred in the past 12 months with documented cases of underage girls.
