16-year-old boy gets 4.5 years jail for kissing a 13-year-old girl

Turkey: A 16-year-old boy has been jailed for four years and a half years in prison for kissing his 13-year-old girlfriend after teachers found his schoolmates sharing a video of the event. The incident took place in the southwestern Turkish province of Antalya on the country’s Mediterranean coast.

Court has found the boy guilty of sexual abuse under a law that forbids sexual conduct with children under the age of 15. Video filmed by a schoolmate showing the boy hugging and kissing the girl in the schoolyard was used as evidence.

Five other children were charged for producing obscene images and spreading them. They all are school friends aged 13 to 16, including one who filmed the episode and others who shared it. But they were all acquitted.

The 16-year-old boy’s lawyer, Zuhal Merve Ozfidan, said she would appeal the verdict, and refused to share the details of the case as it involves minors.
