Young girl, get out of my mind...

Someone has accused Uncle Jesse from Full House of a love that is way out of line. Meet Allison Cross, who allegedly had a fling with John Stamos back in 2004. So what, you ask? Well...back in 2004, Allison was a 17-year old on Spring Break in Florida with friends when Stamos is alleged to have invited her and a female friend up to his hotel room where he supposedly was photographed hanging out with strippers and cocaine.

Eventually, Cross and some nightclub owner buddy of hers named Scott Sippola allegedly tried to extort $680,000 out of Stamos. Stamos went to the cops, a sting was set up and Cross and Sippola were arrested. Yesterday, Stamos faced Cross in court.

Listen...before you get too hard on Uncle Stamos for taking a 17-year old and her friend up to a hotel room filled with strippers and coke, take the following into consideration.

At the time, Stamos was having to deal with losing this...

to this.

Could not have been easy, you know. gives us a great opportunity to revisit a little Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. Hey...the music industry has never been turned off by statutory rape.

Late add:
This post spurned a discussion this afternoon about all the songs devoted to this topic. We were able to come up with the following (feel free to add your own in the comments):
-I Saw Her Standing There - Beatles
-I'm on fire - The Boss
-Girl You'll be a Woman Soon - Neil Diamond (but better known for the Urge Overkill version from Pulp Fiction)
-She's Sexy and 17 - Stray Cats
-Don't Stand so Close to Me - Police
-Hot Blooded - Foreigner

Perhaps the most blatant other than Puckett and the Union Gap:
-Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves - Cher ("Papa would have shot him if he'd knew what he'd done." She became a "gal in trouble" for crying out loud!)
