Italy - it’s like Florida, only with better food and less old people

italy-florida.jpgI mean, seriously, check this shit out:

A 34-year-old Italian man who had sex with a 13-year-old girl has had his sentence cut by a two-thirds because a court decided there was “real love” between the pair.

Yup — the court bought the argument of his lawyers, the there was “deep tenderness” between the perv and the little girl, an so Antonio de Pascale only got a sentence of a little over a year. For having sex with a 13-year-old!

Better/worse yet — because Italy has a general amnesty for sentences of less than three years, he may not even serve a single day.

Yeah, Italy's judicial system often seems to mistake sexual assault for consensual sex. The motto seems to be "if he didn't beat her up, then what's the problem?" and if he did beat her up, then it might be OK if they are married.

Apparently an Italian man once got off of rape charges because "women's jeans are so tight that you need their help to remove them."

And then Antonio des Pascale saw his entire future as rock and roll's piano playing icon L'assassino crumble before him.

Does it say if the girl was his cousin or not, because, you know, people eventually just look beyond that over here.
