Say what you will about Letourneau (and honestly, I find what she did to be deplorable and… well.. sickening) the kid is now of legal age to make decisions for himself barring any psychiatric statement to the contrary. There’s no reason why the judge should not overturn the no contact order if it’s at Fualaau’s request. But, that’s just my thought.
Now, that said… one would think that there might be a psychiatric reason behind saying “Um… keep it in your pants there fella. This woman’s not someone who’s been a healthy part of your life.” You would think age and maturity would help this poor young man see that what she did then… was wrong and helped shape the course of events for the rest of his life.
But then again… as the article says, “this is a love story.”
A very weird and… creepy one, but a love story nonetheless… I guess. If you’re… very weird and creepy.
Update 8-6-04: They gave the kid his wish. I guess we’ll see how creepy and weird this love story continues to get… or not.
