Underage sex is a crime under Wisconsin law
A young person's fancy might turn to thoughts of love in the spring, but Pierce County social workers are concerned about what kids are doing with free time in the summer.
In all of 2009, 16 children were referred to Pierce County juvenile court intake workers for having sex or sexual contact. This year, they reached that number by the end of July. Of those 32 kids, one was 12, five were 13, eight were 14, six were 15 and 12 were 16.
