    Torii Hunter placed on Angels Restricted List

    According to Hardball Talk, the Angels put Torii Hunter on the Restricted List to allow him to attend to a personal matter.

    While the club has offered no further comment at this time, an NBC affiliate in Dallas is reporting that Hunterís 17-year-old son, Darius McClinton-Hunter, was one of five Prosper High School students who were arrested Monday on charges related to a sexual assault.
    Just horrifying news, and obviously 'innocent until proven guilty', but all three of Torii's sons are big-time baseball/football prospects, and this is true, all you can say is what a waste, a sad, sad story.

    One of many (too many) instances that helps put baseball into proper perspective and remind us that family is all that really matters.

    That is sad news and if the kid is guilty he should pay his dues, but has to be noted that Hunter's son is also a minor and his name should have not been released.

    It appears that's not the case.

    Since when a 17-year old is an adult?

    In many states, including Texas, children as young as 14 who commit "adult" crimes can be charged and later sentenced as adults.

    Usually in cases where they are later "tried as an adult" they are still treated as a minor until a judge rules that they can be charged as an adult.

    However, Texas is one of 11 states where you are only considered a "juvenile" if you are under the age of 17, so at 17 you are not eligible to any of the protections the law provides for juveniles.
