Man Charged as Pedophile for Sex with Underage Wife

A 19-year-old man has been handed a three year prison sentence for having sex with his 15-year-old wife, with whom he had a daughter. The law recognised his marriage as legal, but his consummating it constituted child abuse…

The couple, residents of the Russian province of Tula, near Moscow,  had fallen in love when the girl was but 14, although she had apparently lied about about her age, telling him she was 17 and so legal.

Their romance soon resulted in pregnancy, and they approached the girl’s parents promising they would raise the ensuing child properly, and that they were a loving and devoted couple.

The parents opted to support them, and the pair obtained special permission to marry now that they had parental consent. The parents helped care for the infant so the young man could return to work, and their daughter to school.

However, this tale of conjugal bliss was unexpectedly shattered when the boy was summoned by police, and charged with paedophilia for having sex with a minor. It appears that though he was freely allowed to marry an underage girl, he was not free to have sex with her. It is not clear who launched the prosecution.

The husband has been sentenced to 37 months of penal servitude, though it seems he escapes being branded a sex offender for life (if only because no such system is in place).

“On the one hand, the girl was allowed to get married. On the other hand, it is considered inexcusable to have a sexual relationship with a person younger than 16 years,” commented a Moscow children’s rights specialist.

In the circumstances, it is thought the courts may be lenient and suspend the sentence against him, though he remains in pre-trial detention.
