A 34-year-old Italian butcher who was having an affair with 13-year-old girl had his sentence reduced by two-thirds because a judge decided there was "real love" involved. Antonio de Pascale was given a sentence of a year and four months instead of the maximum possible penalty — 12 years — because, according to the Telegraph, the girl had consented to every action and there was "deep tenderness" between the two. Simonetta Matone, a Roman judge (who did not preside over this case) said, "Every relationship is a relationship and the real maturity, whether physical or psychological, of the minor must be weighed, with the help of experts." Roman Polanski totally wishes he was from Italy now. [Telegraph]
