Default Moral dilema question

What would you do if a friend was charged and jailed for multiple sexual assaults?

Make sure they learn their lesson with jail-time. Forgive them if they are truly repentant but disown them if they are not.

Have they been convicted, or just charged?

wellmy initial reaction was disbelief and shock as I would never have expected him to behave like this,but he pleaded guilty. My instant reaction is to walkaway from him but as a friend its hard to just leave him when he is going through this- even though he deserves everything.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

That's awful . I guess had it been one victim, then I would be less inclined to walk away as it could have been a 'misunderstanding', for instance (I studied Law, so know that things are not always clear cut).

However... four victims and he pleaded guilty... I would find it very hard to support a friend who had done this. Sorry.

When it comes to a persons perception of what arouses them and what is morally acceptable to them in that arousal, that is a leopard that doesn't change it's spots.

To be honest, I'd cut ties - 3 years inside will probably do that naturally anyway. Failing that, I'd only ever go out with them in large groups.

Did he plead guilty because it would mean he got a lesser sentence or was it because he was truly sorry for what he'd done? How well do you know him? If you had no idea he was capable of such a thing and he's being punished for what he's done then I don't see why you couldn't remain friends

Horrible situation....if he's a nonce then obviously it's a no brainer and let's hope he gets napalmed while inside. Come to think of it, I'd say it's a no brainer all round. Hope he's not a an ex of yours - that could really make you rush for the bath with a scrubbing brush.
