X17Online reports Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Taylor Lautner is 17! That makes it statutory rape under California law if it's true.
California penal code: 261.5. (a) Unlawful sexual intercourse is an act of sexual
intercourse accomplished with a person who is not the spouse of the
perpetrator, if the person is a minor.
For the purposes of this section, a "minor" is a person
under the age of 18 years and an "adult" is a person
who is at least 18 years of age.

WHY SO MUCH ATTENTION TO STATUTORY RAPE?
California has the highest teen birth rate in the U.S.
Every 8 minutes, a teenager in California has a baby.
3 of 4 births to High School girls are fathered by adults.
Men over 25 account for twice as many teen births as
boys under 18 years old.
The Average Age difference between the teen victim and the adult
defendant in cases filed by the District Attorney is 7years 9months.
Men over 20 are responsible for 5 times as many births among
junior high school girls.
In California almost 70% of teen births are fathered by adult men.
On an average California day 76 teenage girls, 17 & younger,
will give birth.
In Stanislaus County over 6% of teenage girls will give birth
in any given year.
In 1993 1,572 births in California were to mothers 14 years or younger.
The rate of sexually transmitted disease among teenage girls is
twice that of teenage boys.
This all translates into a tremendous drain in our welfare
and medical resources statewide.
AFDC and Medi-Cal costs for 1 teen pregnancy, birth and
1st year support is $10,000.
Total costs for teen births to those 17 and younger
in 1993 for California were $140 million.
