Listen: A date lied about her age while they were teenagers. He’s still dealing with the fallout.

MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

Three years ago, a 19-year-old man in Indiana had sex with a girl he met online. She claimed to be 17 … but was actually 14.

Now 22, Zach Anderson was originally sentenced to 25 years on the sex offender registry list even though both the girl and her mother asked for the case to be thrown out. Once people started paying attention to the insane case, the decision was overturned by another judge.

But after two years on strict probation that includes a 9 p.m. curfew and not being allowed to leave the county, Anderson was re-arrested just days before he was expected to be released from probation. His crime? Two occasions of being around 17-year-olds in a group setting because he was not aware they were under 18 – even though he never interacted with them.

Attorney Scott Grabel had the full story on today’s show.
