Texas: How to Get Away With Rape Edition

Of course it’s Texas.

Ilich Guardiola, 41, got away with rape in Texas by running away with his underage victim and marrying her in Las Vegas, with the consent and support of the girl's mother.  And that's how you get away with rape in Texas.A Texas drama teacher accused of having sex with one of his students has seen all charges against him dropped after he married the teen police had said was his victim.

Ilich Guardiola, 41, was initially questioned by police in April when he was stopped for a traffic violation while riding with the 16-year-old girl in his car. The teen eventually told authorities she was in love with Guardiola and they were in a relationship, according to KHOU.

Before authorities busted him in May for the improper relationship, Guardiola had flown to Las Vegas with the girl and married her with the teen’s mother as the witness, according to KPRC.

You know, a contradiction sticks out, here: The girl wasn’t old enough to have sex, but she was old enough to get married with her mother’s permission. Why not skip all that and just carry a note from your mother saying you have permission to have sex with a forty-one year-old man? I mean, fuck, it would be a lot easier.

And for those of us who might be at least a little unsettled by such a notion? Well, it’s Texas after all. Compared to everything else? Yeah, this sounds about right.
