Nebraska man charged for sex with wife

LINCOLN, Neb. - A 22-year-old man faces criminal charges in Nebraska for having sex with an underage 13-year-old girl, although he legally married her in Kansas after she became pregnant.

The man’s lawyer said the couple, with their families’ support, “made a responsible decision to try to cope with the problem.”

Matthew Koso, 22, was charged Monday with first-degree sexual assault, punishable by up to 50 years in prison. He was released on $7,500 bail pending an Aug. 17 preliminary hearing.

After the girl became pregnant, her mother gave permission in May for Koso to take the young woman to Kansas, which allows minors to get married with parental consent. The girl is now 14 and seven months pregnant.

“The idea ... is repugnant to me,” said Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning. “These people made the decision to send their ... 14-year-old daughter to Kansas to marry a pedophile.”

Kansas law labeled ‘ridiculous’
He said the marriage is valid, thanks to the “ridiculous” Kansas law, “but it doesn’t matter. I’m not going to stand by while a grown man ... has a relationship with a 13-year-old — now 14-year-old — girl.”

Bruning, who has said he will seek a second term in 2006, has aggressively prosecuted sex crimes against children since he was elected in 2002

The couple were married in May by a judge in Hiawatha, Kan., just across the state line from Falls City.

Nebraska allows people as young as 17 to marry if they have parental consent.

Kansas law, however, sets no minimum marriage age, although case law sets the minimum age at 14 for boys and 12 for girls. The marriage must be approved by both parents or guardian, or by a district court judge, said Whitney Watson, spokesman for Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline. A judge also must approve if only one parent approves.

Koso’s lawyer, Willis Yoesel, said the girl’s mother and Koso’s parents approved of the marriage. He said the girl’s father has not lived with the family for some time.

‘The families are all united’
“It seems to me like they, as much as they could, made a responsible decision to try to cope with the problem,” Yoesel said.

“The families are all united in this effort,” Yoesel said. “I don’t know who is complaining. ... What benefit is there to anybody in the prosecution of this young man?”

There was no comment from Koso, who does not have a listed telephone number.

That's funny


However he can be charged at the Federal level as well b/c of a law known as the Mann Act, which prohibits crossing state lines in order to have sexual contact with a minor.

So if you have a g/f in FL who is 17...you can't take her to TX to motel 6 just b/c 17 is the legal age of consent in TX as opposed to 18 in FL - if you catch my drift.

By any standards this is just disgusting

the guy shouldnt have been arrested, the dip**** parents of the girl should be thrown in jail for not killing the guy for having sex with their 13 year old daughter, and then agreeing to let her marry him .......... WTF is wrong with these people.....

I just read abt this while w8g for my cage to have the oil changed. I was surprised the idiot parents agreed to let this pedophile marry their daughter. Why does everyone seem to think that getting married solves the problem? Hello ppl, she'll still be pregnant & a kid!! The only thing that changes is the impregnator will be nearby. Who's to say he won't do this to another girl despite being married?? These are the ppl that give Midwesterners a bad rep.


If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

While I was in Alberta, I had a discussion with a few women that were from a religious community and that community permit and encouraged marriage (religious) from the moment that the girls were woman (meaning able to reproduce) that is very young, probably 14 or even 13. It sounded to me bizarre that this was legal but the women told me it wasn't a joke and it really happen in there community. They also told me that there was other communities like that in the USA namely in Oregon.....Sure it sound just for us White/christian/occidental people but for them it is acceptable.....don't forget : we can't all thinks the same way. Personnally I think they should jail the ba$tard for pedophilly and send the poor girl see a professionnal for help, but is just my
