An age-old question answered
With the trend in recent years of charging teenagers who commit serious violent crimes as adults, there's a common joke question that if a teenage convict is raped in prison, is it still child molestation?

In Florida, the answer is no.

Oh, and if you're Wiccan, the Boy Scouts might not want you either.

Ordinarily, no. Ordinarily, it's a different charge with a stiffer penalty to assault a minor. (Stiffer still if the minor is very young, under 12 or 16 or so, depending on the state.) It's possible the reporter fudged a couple details, but as written, it sounds like the cellmate is being charged for raping an adult.
