Adultery could mean life, court finds
That's what the law says in sex-drug case Cox appealed
January 15, 2007

BY BRIAN DICKERSON

FREE PRESS COLUMNIST

In a ruling sure to make philandering spouses squirm, Michigan's second-highest court says that anyone involved in an extramarital fling can be prosecuted for first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to life in prison.

"We cannot help but question whether the Legislature actually intended the result we reach here today," Judge William Murphy wrote in November for a unanimous Court of Appeals panel, "but we are curtailed by the language of the statute from reaching any other conclusion.


"Technically," he added, "any time a person engages in sexual penetration in an adulterous relationship, he or she is guilty of CSC I," the most serious sexual assault charge in Michigan's criminal code.

No one expects prosecutors to declare open season on cheating spouses. The ruling is especially awkward for Attorney General Mike Cox, whose office triggered it by successfully appealing a lower court's decision to drop CSC charges against a Charlevoix defendant. In November 2005, Cox confessed to an adulterous relationship.

That Michigan sound like a fun place for swingers.

I believe this is grounds for bringing back the greatest public event of participation in the death penalty- Stoning. That way everyone has a hand in the verdict, fuck the justice! After they finish the trial, you will know what it means to be Hadd!!!

We're getting closer by degrees to becoming the one thing we would condemn others for and even destroy their country for doing it- acting like the Taliban.

Judeo/Greco/roman law has all the essentials for Sharia. One look at the old testament and its ancient laws around stoning and it becomes apparent that these laws are just waiting to reappear!!! The greeks ate their servants, and the romans liked to watch the animals eat, so our relevant histories are well rooted in tyrannical atrocities. Let's just admit we need Sharia law in America and get on with the stonings!!! Especially adulterers!! Then why stop there when you can just go all the way and include fornicators too!!!

Just so you know the future of justice in America- here's an article -

http://www.guardian.co.uk/theissues/art ... 72,00.html
Quote:
Hadd offences carry specific penalties, set by the Koran and by the prophet Mohammed. These include unlawful sexual intercourse (outside marriage); false accusation of unlawful intercourse; the drinking of alcohol; theft; and highway robbery. Sexual offences carry a penalty of stoning to death or flogging while theft is punished with cutting off a hand.

"This is a system of criminal law which has become a potent symbol of Islamisicing the law," says Dr Welchman. "But there is the question of whether it's actually applied in the countries which have adopted it. There is supposed to be a very high burden of proof, but that clearly often doesn't happen in practice."


Not to be outdone will we see a Christianising of the law? Can't wait until they dehumanize us as Christo-fascists!!!!

:lol:

Maybe history has been wrong in recording where the Puritans landed....it might have been in Michigan!

The Puritans were a Christian forerunner of the Taliban, imo. :P

Yeah, it is interesting how they'd call Sharia law backwards, when you see a law like that.

But there's still something to be said about these strict interpretations of Sharia law, which has reared its ugly head in light of this Saudi woman rape case.

According to an IHT article:
Quote:
Under Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic Sharia law, women are not allowed in public in the company of men other than their male relatives. Also, women in Saudi Arabia are often sentenced to flogging for adultery and other crimes.


And from a tidbit in All Headline News:
Quote:
Sharia law sometimes requires execution by stoning of married or divorce persons found guilty of "Zina" or adultery," the statement added.
