Mark Sanchez 17 Year Old Hook Up Eliza Kruger–Was it Illegal?

Mark Sanchez

New York Jets star quarterback Mark Sanchez is being run over the coals for allegedly hooking up with a Eliza Kruger, a 17-year-old high school girl and very much a minor. But it’s being reported that the 24-year-old football star didn’t know how young his hook-up was. She supposedly lied about her age. So if he didn’t know she was underage. And even though she was 17, is that even a crime?

Not in New York or New Jersey.  But it’s the idea of a grown man, a famous grown man, is dating a girl in high school that gives people pause. But should Mark Sanchez be publicly skewered for his alleged entanglement with this high schooler? Especially if he didn’t know. The two reportedly met at a Manhattan nightclub, which probably had an age requirement to get in, so he probably assumed she was older right off the bat. But Deadspin – in their interview with Eliza Kruger said:

“You know I’m 17, right?” she remembers saying. Sanchez kept his cool. “Well, we can still talk, but I can’t see you until you’re 18,” he said. “Actually,” E.K. replied, “17 is legal in New York.”

So if it’s legal, and it was consensual…what’s the big deal?

    Big deal…the dude is barely 24…he’s barely out of high school himself. If Mark worked at a fast food joint Nobody would be talking about it.

    Well said, Quake.

    Thing is, though, that if it wasn’t legal, it wouldn’t matter if Mark said he thought she was 18 or not.

    Remember that in today’s idiotic laws : “Ignorance is no Excuse” is the mantra being used.

    And only because the LAW can’t do sh-t about it since she’s of LEGAL AGE(17), that Mark is in the clear but all that said…

    Why is everyone ASSUMING that he had any sort of “sexual” relationship with her? Because she said so? SPARE ME.

    Like Girls don’t lie, right? Pull the other finger while you’re at it, then.

    There’s ZERO EVIDENCE that he actually slept with her. All we got from Eliza is a picture of SOMEONE’S bedroom. Unless Mark admits it’s his, I call bullsh-t.
