well u have no basis for thinking you know everything. If you do not know all the facts why make assumptions you know his guilty i admit he did a stupid thing but if he wasnt threatened and she lied grant would not have had to suffer for the brats lies.
Plus he had some of the charge dropped where they found out that she lied under owth infront of the courts

Listen buddie NO young child these days is going to listen to their parents if they wanna do something they are going todo it. yes he broke the law but should she lie because she wanted to look good so her parents wouldn't find out she;s been having sex since she was 10. Like seriously everyone your commenting on the fact his old then her what about the fact shes a lier and is in fact sleeping with alot of guys all at once? exactly all that matters to you people is he is old and did it.... and again as stated in previous comments she was wanting a bj for smokes and beer like she had been doing with 4 other guys because grant wouldn't do it all the time for her.

Just a reminder. Even if the little girl provided a sexual act for Mr. Coady ......
If a thirteen year old child walked up to you and offered to do so for you would you do it. If you are thirteen, maybe.
If you are 22 and go for it - YOU BROKE the law. It is up to the adults in our communities to 'teach' younger people what is acceptable and what isn't through our actions and words.
There isn't even a decision that has to be made. It is black and white - it is against the law and most people in society can figure out why using only a small portion of their brain.

I mean no disrespect to you when I say that you are ignorant about children and sexuality.
A ten year old girl does not have the same experience as a mature female when she engages in sex. It is like a movie show to them not a mature exchange of affection combined with passion.Their brains are not wired to calculate things like forecasting consequences etc.
Ten year old children who are sexually active have usually been sexually molested and that was their introduction to sex.That leaves them very vulnerable to being re-offending against. You can read about this stuff if you want to know some truths.Drinking at that age is an act of escapism, trying to not have to think about her real life. Trying to look as if she is old enough to have her life in order because she really feels as if everything is crazy and out of control.
Of course I keep going on about Tapper's age. I don't know if you are a male or a female. If you were a 26 year old male and thought it was okay to engage in any sexual act with a 13 year old girl I would say that you were a pedophile and deserved serious prison time as well as sex offender treatment.
Grant shouldn't have done it once and the others should also be arrested. Real men find real women and have mutual relationships. They don't take advantage of anyone who wants a beer and a smoke. They just say "no" or give them those things for free.
Reply to me after you do some reading about these types of situations. You have too much emotional investment in the guy in this situation to be objective.

As a witness of the ACTUAL occurrence, I can tell you that she did not lure him in. I've read everyone playing the role of the judge and using questions that are completely irrelevant, but I was there. I know everything and you all know nothing, this was a far more complex situation than you may believe. You are all idiots.
