This case poses an interesting question about culpability versus victimization.
From the Daily Mail:
Political science professor David Epstein, 46, allegedly bedded his 24-year-old daughter between 2006 and 2009.
Epstein, who specialises in American politics and voting rights, is said to have also exchanged twisted text messages with the girl during the consensual relationship.
So the relationship was consensual, both were adults, and yet only the man was charged. I leave it to you to decide whether that’s fair.
Of course, there may be more to this story. It could be that the woman was granted immunity to get her to testify against the father. That poses an entirely different set of questions. If the woman doesn’t feel victimized, then helping to send her father to prison would most likely destroy whatever relationship still exists and could saddle her with crippling guilt for the rest of her life.
What would be the preferred outcome for a case like this?
