I have known Ivan Crumbliss since elementary school. He's not a rapist, this is outrageous.

Maybe you don't know your friend quite so well. From another article:

The suspects, arrested by Belton police Wednesday, were: Daniel Lee Chaney, 19; Ivan Douglas Crumbliss, 18; Johnny Ray Embers, 22; Jonathan Medina, 20; Bradley Deon Moffett, 21; and Christopher Alexander Smith, 20.

All of the suspects confessed to the crime except for Smith, the arrest affidavit said. Another suspect, Chaney, said Smith bragged about sexually assaulting the victim, the affidavit said.

My hope is that the sick bastards get the book tossed at them. On another note, lets charge the parents with child neglect, or something. My 15 year old daughter is not going to a party with a group of 18 t 22 year old young 'men'.

I know Ivan and he would NEVER I repeat NEVER do something like this. This is ridicouls and not nessary./ This is going to ruin other peoples lives because a stupid girl says she got raped. Maybe somebody should think about what shes done before she accuses people. Ivan is one of my very good friends and would never do something like this!!!!!!!

It is what it is!
True, the 15 year old should not have been there and you definitely should know who your children hang around with and where they go but for these young men to take advantage of her was criminal!
May the Texas justice system show these young men the power of the gavel!

Cassidy, so these fine young men with kids, at the very least had sex with a willing underage child? You need to re-look at your definition of fine boys.

My name is Mariah. I recently dated Ivan Crumbliss. I have known Ivan for quite sometime. I find it really hard to wake up everyday and go through school, listning to all of the horrible things people are saying. I know that Ivan is inocent.It isn't fair that any of these men should serve hard time due to the lack of medical evidence. I cant believe that they are just going to go off of a single girls word. I know Ivan Douglas crumbliss, and I know he will hold his head high and do what he has to do. I cant wait till the day hes released because he is going to show the world what a great person he really is. Ivan we all love and miss you. Cant wait to see you on the outside again

Mariah, So are you saying that Ivan is the ONE that did not confess to the crime? The rest of them confessed. Only 1 did not.

I don't believe that the confessions were done in legal nor proper manner. Everyone pulling for Ivan hang in there we are working on it. Don't believe all you see or hear there are 2 sides to every story. For those against, grow up and remember this country has a constitution that states everyone is INNOCENT until proven guilty in a court of LAW, not a blog or in unknowledgeable people who only talk from what they hear and are not involved. JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED. That is why we have a court system in place. Just wait until all is said and the verdict is read.

Sis, most folks that are innocent don't confess, some of you here remind me of every standing up for M. Vick, he really is innocent, just pleaded guilty because he is black. It would not mater what he cops did or said, since I tell the truth in all things, they could not trick me into a confession, or confuse me about what I said before.

Where are the young girls that defended the rape gang? Have they been grounded, or have they taken the time to look up the story in the paper and see more of what the 'fine young men' did?

Rob, I guess the girls that were defending the guys have stopped commenting. I guess as more and more facts come out, they are running out of ways to defend the sick bastards.

Ivan has been one of my really good friends for a while now, practically a brother to me. He is NOT a rapist. He would never force anyone to do anything they aren't willing do. this is all bull that those boys lives are RUIND because one girl wanted to "party" with older boys. maybe her parents should be faulted someone seeing as how they didn't know where in the world they're kid was. And if they did know, shame on them for letting their 15 year old daughter hangout unattended with 18-22 yr old males. Im 16 & I would never go to a party with that mny older guys. I LOVE YOU IVAN.STAY STRONG BABY!

Megann, Ivan is 18, if he had sex with a 15 year old girl, he is a rapist and will have to register as a child molester for the rest of his life.
The word is Ruined, please forget Ivan and try to make a couple days of school a week at least.

Mariah, can you post a source? I did a search and can not find anything but the original story? If I owe the young man an apology, I will be the first to offer one.
