So, Tilden R.A.P.E.D. children as did Hewitt.
Class acts, neither of them.
You're confusing law with morality. Just because the law uses the same word to refer to two different kinds of acts, or even punishes them the same, doesn't mean the two acts are morally equivalent. (And, so far as I know, Tilden's acts were limited to "heavy petting".)
