Law of convenience...

An 11 year old boy in New Zealand has fathered a child with a 36 year old mother of his friend...which has raised many a questions... As per NZ law, only men can be tried for rape and not women!!! Now the tricky question is whether to try the boy for the rape or the woman?? Since woman is protected under law, they cant try her.
Since boy has proved that he is capable of fathering a child, he might be tried..
However since he is underage, he can't be tried under NZ law...So under their law, none can be tried... Good .. this is called the Law of convenience!!!
