I always believed that statutory rape is a sexual offense towards minors. But when I looked up what statutory means, I've learned this.
- having come to be required or expected through being done or made regularly
- required, permitted, or enacted by statute.
I'm pretty sure that I'm missing something here because the kind of rape I'm referring to can be of a single occurrence. Also it's surely not expected to be done, definitely not required and for duck's sake not permitted!
