"Women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground..."

18-year-old Adil Rashid has been spared a prison sentence for raping a child because "he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law" as reported by The Daily Mail of London, England on Jan. 25, 2013.

Judge Michael Stokes granted Rashid a suspended sentence, stating:

"Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters."

"Honest, officer, I didn't know robbing a bank was illegal"

"Go and sin no more, my son, all is forgiven"..
