    (KUTV) SALT LAKE CITY, Utah A mother is upset after a 14-year-old babysitter engaged in sexual conduct with her eight-year-old boy, and the eight-year-old was charged with lewd conduct.

    Prosecutors have since dropped the charges against the boy, but his mother is still concerned.


The 14 year old girl initatites a game of "Truth or Dare" with the child she's babysitting and ends up daring him to touch her breast. The 8 year old does it, then tells mommy. Mommy goes to the police... and the DA charges the son.

Completely ridiculous. Is this the product of thinking that in any given sexual misconduct case the male must be at fault? It just seems so ridiculous to jump to such a conclusion.

This is probably one of the stupidest applications of a law I have ever heard.

I'm wondering if the babysitter is:
a) a bad girl.
b) abused herself.
c) sexually naive for her age.
d) mentally retarded in some way.

I can't even fathom the thought process that would have led the DA to charge the 8 year old, unless this DA is the type who would charge the victim of a hit-and-run with J-walking.
