Nebraska wedding present: statutory rape

2005913_koso_crystalBy Greg Reeves
The lack of a minimum age for marriage in Kansas got a lot of attention recently with the case of Nebraskan Matthew Koso, 22, who showed up in Kansas to marry his pregnant 14-year-old girlfriend (left, with Koso) in May. Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning rewarded the father-to-be with a rape charge.
Koso's young wife gave birth a 7 lb, 1 oz girl Aug. 24. Koso faces 50 years in prison on the charge of first-degree sexual assault. This is a case worth watching.
