A board of inquiry has been set up to investigate the incident and make recommendations. Ironically, I was assigned chairmanship of the board. Evidences have been provided and names of witnesses listed. The accused is seventeen years old, and the son of a special adviser to the state governor. I have started receiving friendly pressures.
One remarkable thing that most members of the board seem to agree upon is that the boy has a right to his sexuality. Surprised? I was too.
Now, I want to look for possible escape routes for that boy, but there are obstacles:
- My integrity. I might be accused of collecting bribe from his wealthy family to free him.
- The school’s manual clearly forbids sexual relationships between students in or outside the school premises. It stipulates expulsion as punishment. Note that this institution is military.
- Another student’s education was terminated some months ago on the accusation of attempted sodomy. He was reported by this same boy – the one on trial now. A case of a gay guy outing another gay guy. Does he deserve mercy?
I will like to know what to do to affect this situation.
