First of all sex with teenagers is not considered pedpohelia. Pedophilia is defined as "Over a period of at least 6 months, recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving sexual activity with a prepubescent child or children (generally age 13 years or younger)" So 16 isnt in that catergory. The article never stated that he had sex with the young woman. He took her picture. Have any of you ever taken pictures of your significant other? Yes, he was married, yes he does have a daughter. That he saw every week, if he was such a treat to children why would he be allowed to see his daughter? That doesnt make sense. He has even been in my house and around my children and never once did he make my family feel uncomfortable. Paul is a good man with a heart of gold and would never hurt anyone! So to all of you who are mad cause you arent getting as much attention as he is or mad cause you feel cheated on - GET OFF IT! He is serving his time and is doing what he has gotta do. To all of us that are his REAL friends all we can do is be there for him now and when he is released. It isnt going to be easy for him when he gets out but maybe with our love and support we can help him.

I can verify that Paul was diabetic. I've known him for 25 years. I lost touch with him after college and don't know for sure about the marriage and baby. The private bodyguard thing doesn't sound right, but who knows?

As a few other people have pointed out, Paul always was a little "strange" but who isn't? We were good childhood friends and I think those of you who are calling him names like "monster" don't know the real Paul. We don't know all the facts only what was reported and even that is not always accurate. Only Paul and that girl know the true nature of their relationship.

Technically Paul broke the law and is paying for it. That's what our society does...creates laws and punishes people who break the laws. They call it correctional facilities for a reason...hopefully Paul's problems will be corrected. He had a lapse of judgement/character/morality but does he deserve to be punished for the rest of his life for it? Or can he serve his punishment, be corrected and re-enter society? All kinds of people from all walks of life reach points in their lives where they may make a bad/immoral judgement and even break the law. I repeat...OUR SOCIETY CHOOSES TO ENFORCE THOSE LAWS THROUGH CORRECTIONAL TERMS.

Paul has been tried, found guilty and sentenced to a correctional facility. Let him serve his punishment and get the help that he needs. Leave the rest of it alone. Those of you who refuse to accept this concept....I hope you travel to some dictatorship country like China and get mixed up in some legal misunderstanding and are tried, beaten and killed with no fair jury because that is the same treatment you are trying to apply to Paul.

thank you again to all the people defending paul. he would do anything for his friends and family. he would help anyone if they needed help. so, thank you again for your kind words. and yes he has diabetes, he was married and has a beautiful child and he had cancer and is a survivor. but tell me, what does all this have to do with him being in prison. please just leave this man alone once and for all. the girl he took pictures of was 16 years old. and yes it was illegal. but the girl was not 12,13,14 or even 15. she was a young woman. how many 16 year olds are having sex? i bet most of them. paul is just paying the price.

Well, I am glad to know he was mostly honest with me. I was wondering why he stopped talking to me and googled him & was absolutely shocked & devastated as to what I found. I just hope, no matter what, that he gets the help he needs and can move on with his life..

<quoted text>ooh big words. scared of you. you little twit.leave the guy alone will ya. you need to go back an read the article. he did not have sex with a child. she was sixteen years old. you all make this entertaining. i will still defend paul.
First of all if you could actually read you would know that i never said he had sex with a child I said he had sex with a teenager which is exactly what he did.

Second of all, just because you are friends with someone does not mean you should condone all of their actions.

Lastly, do you fear intellegence or are you just that stupid?

I believe that he can get the help he needs in the correctional system and I hope he does. I, personally, have very strong feelings on the subject of sexual abuse and combined with the shock of finding out about this I probably came on a little strong. But I will never defend him as some people do.

btw. we all think you are mad that you got cheated on is all.you sound like a bitter *itch.stop posting your idiotic statements
You bet i'm mad about being cheated on but I would never have aired that out on here if it was not for the crimes he commited. I was more upset about that than the fact that he may have cheated on me. the cheating was just the icing on the cake.

You know what is weird? When I knew Paul, he told me he was married, he had a daughter, he was a diabetic and he was a private bodyguard to celebrities. He even sent me pictures of himself holding the baby in the hospital when she was born. Then he told me that his wife left him & took the baby with her. I am wondering what is going on here? Was ANY of that true? Doesn't seem like it. I guess my whole "friendship" with him for 5 whole years was just a complete joke..I can't believe it. I ALSO wish I never googled him.
Paul was married, and had a daughter, i wont put her name though i went with him on one of the visitations but I had to hide at another booth at Wendys because if his ex wife (who is a whale of a woman) saw me she would get upset. Yea he was a diabetic. taking lie 3-4 pills daily and taking insulin like 3 times a day on a good day! Paul wasnt really a private security guard he worked at a concert hall. So he met a few famous people.
The guys had a really touch life. I was 22 when I dated him and Ill say that me dating a man who at the time was 38 was not strange at all... He was short pudgy and looked younger and could keep up with the jokes of my friends and i. I was in love with Paul and I will say this, Had paul asked me to move in with him or marry him one day, I would have without a doubt!(also keep in mind I had no idea of his arrest reason)
He was a normal guy he loves Krispy Kreme and Costco, he loved the free samples. yea hes proud of his scar but wouldnt you be? I had a scar almost the same on my stomach so maybe thats why we got along... Iunno but Paul is not a bad man at all!
