13 Will Get You 20

John W. Phillips, 54, of Fitchburg, Mass., has been charged with 11 felonies after traveling to Detroit, Mich., to have sex with a 13-year-old girl he “married” in RuneScape, an online fantasy game. Police say the girl had sex with him at least three times, and Phillips faces up to 20 years in prison. “They got married in the game,” said a Wayne County Sheriff’s spokesman. “Maybe he thought that was legitimate in real life. It’s not.” (RC/Detroit News) ...Well that’s certainly going to come as a shock to a large percentage of the 12–20 population.
