I'm trying to find the breakdown of the sentence to see how close my guess was on the component parts. I expect the "intercourse with child under the age of 13" component to be concurrent with the...

Hmm. Wouldn't really like to speculate. But I will, anyway. :D Perhaps they see it as equivalent to "cheating"? Can't charm, dominate, bully or use violence against the victim, so they resort to...

No he doesn't. I've seen him on stage many times, and he has a huge range of emotion. I remember one play where he was cast as a psychopathic serial killer, and he never raised his voice once......
