Should you take responsibility and admit to something you've done if it is fairly bad? I feel it's the right thing to do but I'm scared. I wouldn't last in jail, they'd kill me instantly. I want to redeem myself but..
Damn son, well. You should at least seek mental help. I mean you know what you did was wrong and if you don't intend to do it again and there was no permanent damage go get help. For the good of yourself and those around you. Yeah prison will not be kind to you which is the only reason I won't tell you to turn yourself in.
That reminds me though, what are priests supposed to do if someone confesses to a highly illegal act like in this case?
Used to be they'd give you a decent penance. Now I think they're bound by law to report. Some may not, but God will know your sin. Your penance will not be the usual our fathers and hail marys.
I was gonna say jail actually isn't that bad, but for you it would be. Sure there's the occasional fight but in your case you'd be a pariah with no clique so you'd be constantly getting fucked with on a weekly basis if not daily. You would deserve every second of it. There's a special place in Hell for scum like you. It's just all kinds of fucked up to take advantage of a little kid.
If this isn't bait. You're a horrible human being and whether you get what's coming to you now or later. You will eventually reap what you have sown.
This is why you should not talk to anyone about this ever. Just run, never go back. Once people know you're never going to be seen by anyone as a human being again. Find a new niche, never do that shit again and try to redeem yourself through a life of positive action.
