MADISON, Wis. A Wisconsin prosecutor is warning sex education teachers they could face charges if they follow a new state law that allows them to instruct students about proper contraceptive use.

A letter sent to five school districts by Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth said the instruction could amount to contributing to the delinquency of a minor if teachers know students are sexually active. He said the districts should drop sex education until the law is repealed.

Southworth also argued that teaching contraceptive use encourages sexual behavior among children, which equates to sexual assault because minors can't legally have sex in Wisconsin.

"Depending on the specific facts of a case ... this encouragement and advocacy could lead to criminal charges," Southworth, a Republican, wrote to districts in his county.,2933,590520,00.html

A thinly veiled attempt to twist the law to make the schools go to a abstinence-only curriculum in health class. I'm shocked that it comes from Republican - absolutely shocked.

On the other hand, some of these laws "in the name of the kids" go too far. When two teens in a relationship take naked pictures of each other, it may be stupid but they shouldn't have to wear the tag of sexual offender.

Get rid of mandatory minimums and one size fits all punishments. Can't we trust a judge and/or jury to have SOME sense? The spirit of the law is more important than the letter.
