Prof. Doug Abrams’ latest sports blog column, “An Open Letter to Boys About Sexual Abuse,” discusses teenage boys’ legal obligations in light of nationally reported stories of sexual abuse by high school athletes in Steubenville, Ohio, last March, and now in Maryville, Mo.

The column also describes how statutory rape can have lifelong adverse collateral consequences not only for victims, but also for teenage perpetrators. The column received nearly 500 views on the first day it was posted.
