What a terrible story

Check out this article.  Basically it's about a kid who screwed up in high school, and as a 17 year-old senior engaged in some sexual activity with a 15 year-old sophomore.  Because of that he has been sentenced to ten years in prison.  I am not saying anything about how good this kid is - he obviously made several mistakes, of which this is just one.  Apparently he was a promising athlete being recruited by numerous football programs.  He had (has?) a chance to become a contributing member of society.  Of course we all know that there are plenty of football players out there who exemplify stupidity and poor decision-making - but how in the world is it right that this kid is locked up for ten years?  Man.
