Guilt of Sam and Lonnie in Violating the Offence Against the Person Act of 1861
5 pages in length. Sam and Lonnie are guilty of violating the Offence Against The Person Act of 1861, which, in this particular case, speaks to the age of consent section. Being that Anita was all of fifteen years old when these two men (legal age of eighteen) accosted her, and the legal age of consent for sexual activity is sixteen, the assailants are culpable for sexually assaulting a minor under the Act. Paul, on the other hand, must also answer for his actions against Lonnie under the Act, whereby the wrath he took out upon his daughter's assailant was no more lawful than the sexual infringement the young men cast upon Anita.
