This scum bag says he had sex with her, but it was not forced, they were close. She is 14 yrs old and I hope he spends the rest of your life behind bars. But because he will not get life. When he gets out it should be made that he has to give most of what he earns to the child for support, but never have any contact. Leave him enough money for a loaf of bread a week, water is free.

Again I hate to say it but the parents left the door open for this to happen. Going to the store leaving a 23 yr old alone with a 14 yr old is a recipe for disaster. I don't care how good a friend he was. This girl must have been terrified not knowing what was happening to her body.

Didnt we just read this exact SAME STORY a few months ago, but involving 2 different people?
Well, we all know Vermont justice! If he ends up getting the same sentence as the other guy....(remember the responsible dad who just wanted to "own up" to his mistakes) he will be kickin back, drinkin a beer, & going to bed with his stupid wife each night...ON HOUSE ARREST!

Ive got to agree with transplant on this one....I have a 13 yr. old daughter, Im a single parent and she is NEVER left alone with any guy....and I dont allow any guys to "stay with us for awhile"!
WAKE UP Bennington! ONE time was enough!

It's the parents on one side (they should be charged)- the guy who is a child molester and a horney 14 year old teen who's hormones are raging.
She was pregnant and didn't tell her mother till her water broke? Sounds like the TV show "I didn't know I was Pregnant" - sounds like she's tring to get on that TV show?
But here's the real story - the hospital called the police because she is minor - not Mommy and Daddy. Sounds like Mommy and Daddy knew what was up and was ok with it until the hospital called police and they got scared and made up the story that the 14 year had been raped? I don't believe the rape story - this family is stupid you can just tell can't you?

Right!! How is it a mother doessn't know her 14 year old was pregnant? That is really odd. How is it she could not tell? Becoming pregnant changes the way you act... the way you dress ect.. I think these parents knew what was going on. It makes no sence at all that they wouldn't know.. Thats their daughter.. good grif.. someone is lieing through there teeth!! Heck my mom knew I was pregnant before I did. She told me I was and then made an appointment to prove it...

NM, kids can hide it well when they know they are pregnant. bulky clothes etc. It is up to the parents to pay attention to those signs and take notice that something is different or wrong. I hope the baby is OK, to go the entire pregnancy without medical oe pre-natal care because she didn't want anyone to know puts the baby months or years behind her peers in all levels of development. If the rape allegations are true, I feel for the girl and hope the father gets the maximum, but my concern is for the baby and apparently being raised by a 14-yo mother and stupid or uncaring grandparents.

I unerstand what you are saying. But as a mother I think you would ask why your daughter is wareing baggy clothes. and why she would change her apperance. It is all just my OPINION.. I hope she realizes her days of being a little girl are over. I hope and pray some one is able to help her become the best mom she can be. and I wish her all the luck in the world.

As for the rape alligation. It wouldn't be the first time a young girl had sex willingly and then cried rape. I sure hope this isn't what is going on here.
