    NE - Man 22 faces charges for sex with 13 yr.old wife

    Man, 22, faces charges for sex with wife, 13
    Despite parental consent for marriage, state continues prosecution

    A 22-year-old Nebraska man who married the 13-year-old girl he got pregnant is now facing criminal charges for illegally having sex with her.

    Matthew Koso of Falls City could get 50 years in prison on a charge of first-degree sexual assault, even though he married the girl, who is now 14, with her parents' blessing.

    "The idea ... is repugnant to me," Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning told the Associated Press. "These people made the decision to send their ... 14-year-old daughter to Kansas to marry a pedophile."

    Why don't they just make it illegal to marry a child? Wouldn't that be a lot easier than all this?

    From the Article

    "While Nebraska allows people as young as 17 to marry with parental consent, Kansas sets no minimum marriage age. Case law, though, sets the minimum age at 14 for boys and 12 for girls."

    I wonder why the parents aren't being prosecuted as well. IMO they should be.
