    Why isn't he charged with molestation as well if the girl was only 13 when this started?


    LEESBURG, Va. — A civil rights leader who worked closely with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. has been charged with incest.
    The Rev. James L. Bevel, 70, was arrested late last month in Alabama, where he has been living, after being indicted on one count of unlawfully committing fornication.
    On Saturday, defense attorney Buta Biberaj said no plea had been entered yet and it would be premature for her to comment. A bail hearing is set for June 14.
    Bevel appeared briefly in Loudoun County Circuit Court on Friday but did not speak.

    According to the indictment, the crime occurred in Loudoun County in northern Virginia between Oct. 14, 1992, and Oct. 14, 1994, when the accuser was 13 to 17 years old.
    Bevel, who worked with King and witnessed his assassination in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968, has played a key role in some of the country's major civil rights protests. (more at link) http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,279876,00.html

    maybe it has something to do with how much time has passed. i also dont understand how the accuser can be between 13-17 a 4 year span in age but the time is only a 2year span.
