Sexual Privilege...who Pays Depends on Gender and Economic Status

A former Oregon Governor admitted to sexually abusing a teenaged neighbor of his for at least a year, while he was mayor of Portland in the 1970s.  The victim died at age 49 a few years ago, after a history of substance abuse and mental illness.

No criminal charges derived from these actions. The lesson? If you’re a powerful male, you can afford the best defense and the criminal justice system will mostly look the other way.
