The only silver lining is that she also had sex with him in another county (Hillsborough), where she plead guilty and recieved 3 years house arrest and 7 years probation. She is also a registered sex offender because of the deal.

Should have been more but atleast its something.

The operative problem seems to be this:

A psychiatrist who examined the teenager told the judge at a previous hearing that the youth suffered extreme anxiety from the intense media coverage surrounding the case and does not want to testify.
That is, some means needs to be found to spare the abused children the requirement to undergo the trauma of testimony in open court. Imagine what that would be like for a 15 yo boy?

They allow some defendants to testify via closed-circuit TV, or indeed to simply give pre-taped testimony. I don't see why such options couldn't be pursued in cases like this.

Children cannot consent; they can only comply.
