Hmmm, strangely enough in this country children are not able to know whether they want sexual relations until they are 16, and yet we seem to think they are able to know their minds enough to be criminally accountable from the age of 10. The fact is, all children mature at different rates - some are emotionally aware before 16, some less so. Some of these so-called paedophiles are probably on the less emotionally aware scale, whatever their age.
