    Would a Fifth Amendment defense be applicable? Having to choose between seeing a doctor for a condition and incriminating yourself and risking long-term health problems certainly sounds like coercion to me.

    Thanks for your explanation of this case and the pertinent parts of the opinion.

    I guess the next thing will be to watch how closely health care providers are going to be watched in terms of deciding whether there is a reasonable suspicion that an injury has occured during a consensual sexual activity between two underage individuals. In Ohio, the duty to report laws include a risk assessment piece that more or less protects the mental health professional from liability, so long as it’s followed. I’d be interested to know if Kansas has the same, so that there are no witch hunts against such professionals.
