I totally agree with you. When I was 13 I would've known better than to talk to an older man. I mean I barely even carry on a conversation with my teachers. I do believe that the man was totally completely 100% in the wrong but that girl had to have known that what she was doing was wrong seeing as how she lied to her parents about going to a friends house and sneaking out with the man so they could go have sex she knew what she was doing was wrong but from my understanding the man brain washed her and told her noone loved her and he loved her and if she loved him she'd do it with him. They were both wrong but he was way more in the wrong than she was
SHE is a CHILD! She's not in the wrong AT ALL! Even if she did consent to sex, she does not not have the capacity to consent as an adult because she is BABY! She is a CHILD! A kid, every kid wants to think they are grown, but they're not. This man will pay for this. He preyed on a child and now saying she asked for it.....God will forgive him but he WILL PAY. Being forgiven does not absolve sin. You reap what you sow. There is no greater sins than those against children. Second to that, is sins is against women.

FYI, you're right! This does make me want to puke...and I'm not going to get into a religious debate with you over whether there is a God or not. I believe that everyone has a right to their own opinion, and I respect yours. However, I do know that there is a God! I see, everyday, what He has done for me in the last 40 years. He has seen me through times that I didn't believe I would make it through. As a single mother, there were months when I didn't know how I was going to make ends meet, yet He provided a way!
I won't tell you that there aren't bad people in the world, especially in church, but they aren't all bad. Yes, preachers make mistakes-and I am in NO WAY condoning what Mr. Lusk did because it disgusts me to no end-but preachers are also men, and they are human. Granted, they are supposed to be above temptations and the things that some of them have done, and continue to do, turn people away from church. Look at what some Catholic priests have been convicted of in the last few years! This just goes to show that things of this nature are not confined just to COC preachers.
I try to respect everyone, no matter their religious beliefs, because no two people are alike-in the way they think, believe, dress, talk, act, etc. I once dated someone who told me that "Christians think they're perfect". I told him that we aren't perfect, just forgiven! If Mr. Lusk is truly sorry for what he did and repents, then God's forgiveness is between him and God...that doesn't mean, though, that people are required to forgive him. And I truly hope and pray that he is made to pay for his sin by the legal system!
Just for the record, I would be this angry if he were a teacher, her father or anyone else. Men should not have sex with girls. PERIOD.

I totally agree also, a person has to be a sick human being to look at a child and think of sex. There are enough single women out there to have an affair with if you chose to do so. But if you're married, that's a whole different topic.

To all of you out there... I don't know this preacher or the girl I just know what you all say on here. You all seem to know alot about ther situation. I think about this and read about it. I have a daughter a very young daughter but I it doesn't keep you from thinking it could've been your daughter. Some of you say I would beat my daughter... She should've known better... But really what did Mr. Lusk tell this 13 yr. old little girl to make her think he loved her or she loved him. Think of it that way. He is the adult, well was suppossed to be. So before you point fingers on either party remember he was supposed to be the adult and if she came on to him or whatever I don't know but she didn't make him have sex with her. In an opinion he could have told her many things to make her have feelings for him. Who knows??? But I have doubt she made him. It might have been consentual. Possible... But Mr. Lusk not only hurt himself but think of his family and that little girl. Girls at that age are new teens. Girls fantise about older men. And Metoo, grow up and be a good parent. Don't beat your child. Get your damn facts strait before beating your kid. Actually I hope you are a better parent than what you act on here. ASSHOLE...
Apparently you didn't read the entire thing. I am almost positive that I made it clear that I was in no way excusing his behavior and that ultimately he was responsible for the situation. I also believe that I said I was exagerating about beating my child. I would never abuse any of them, and they know that (unfortunately). And please don't lecture me about my maturity level when you resort to name calling during a discussion. Regardless of the fact that you disagree with my opinion, please respect it, as I will yours.

Ok people, let's see, a 13 yr old who possibly thinks she is grown, has a crush on an older man..that man is married with 3 kids and a preacher too! Give me a damn break! How is this kid to blame for anything? He is "suppose" to be the adult. Then he gets busted, goes to jail and boo-hoo's on T.V. so everyone will forgive him. I say, Burn in Hell you sick Bastard! You had numerous chances to know you were doing wrong, like when you were tucking in your kids or when your wife kissed you on the cheek...then you'd run off to text a lil girl. Please don't use your lame excuses. Some of us are not fooled by your tactics. Oh and btw, what happened to the I'm sorry bit....you plead "Not Guilty". Quit putting on a front and be a real man. The only people I feel sorry for, in this whole mess is the victim, she doesn't even know the effects this will have on her life (and No she does NOT deserve to be punished...she needs someone who can guide her about what is right and what is wrong and tell her, crushes are ok, but that you don't hop into bed with any man to prove you love him)and the poor family suffering from this piece of garbage's behavior. Imagine what that wife and kids are going thru? My heart goes out to you! Keep your head high, you have done nothing to be ashamed of.

TALKIN ABOUT A 13 YEAR OLD AS "A PIECE OF ASS" is tacky and wildly, VERY inappropriate. I'm sure you didn't mean it that way, but I'm sure her family is reading this. This is not what they should be reading right now.

Going back to one of the previous posts about her lying and sneaking off to do what she wanted (regardless of the fact that she was possibly manipulated into believing that that was what she wanted), how is she supposed to be guided and taught without being punished (please don't anyone bring up the beating again because I believe I have made it clear already that I was exagerating) when she does wrong? I still have to maintain that she knew that what she was doing was wrong because, as hippie pointed out earlier, she was lying and sneaking. That is a lesson learned as a toddler when your caught sneaking candy or hiding something that you broke.

And for all you people who will undoubtedly bring up the beating again (even though I feel I have explained myself enough), I have almost eliminated this from my 4 & 5 yrs olds by encourageing honesty and openness. Because they are so rarely punished (they are great kids), they usually tell me and we talk about it.

What the hell?! You people amaze me! Seriously, what f**king planet are you from?! It doesn't matter how old the girl looks, or acts, the fact of the matter is SHE IS 13, and he was what 35! There is no such thing as consensual sex at 13! She is not old enough, or mature enough, that's why there are laws to protect little girls like her from sick freaks like him. I just have to ask if you're a member of his church or family. Is that the reason you and a few other people are so quick to point out how old she looks. What if it was your grand daughter? Would you still blame her? My daughter is 13, and I don't f**king care how old she looks, that bastard wouldn't be breathing!

You do not know the whole story. The girl is 13, but looks 25 from what I have heard, while what he did was wrong, you need to remember that there was another party and sometimes a 13 year old girl is a lot more mature than the age she presents.
I have two grand daughters that are 13, and one of them still plays with Barbies and looks and acts like a 9 year old while the other one is dating Juniors in High School, talking about college, acting more like a 20 something year old. Only your genetics determines how you mature, so don't go starting that she's so innocent at 13 crap.

YOU ARE A DOUCHE BAG! You kinda make me think you get off on this, you sick fuck! Any man that finds himself sexually attracted to a 13 year old CHILD, should be castrated. WOW, I'm amazed. I moved my family here from California because even by an Atheist's standards, California as a whole is morally bankrupt, but you people are amazing! You should be coming together as a community to help this child, and her family heal instead you are blaming her. All you "Christians" think you're morally superior, when in reality, all you do is hide behind your bibles and blame anything from the 13 year old girl to the fucking boogie monster for everything for every bad choice you make in life. Here's a thought, how about the sick bastard takes responsibility for what he did. When I was 13 it was normal to have a crush on the math teacher, what wasn't normal was the math teacher reciprocating that crush!

CaliGirl98,
I agree with you for the most part...Camille Toe is a DOUCHE BAG, BUT I am a Christian and I IN NO WAY think I am superior! I do believe that the ENTIRE community of Logan County should support this girl and her family; however, you're going to have those idiots (like Camille Toe) who want to persecute her. I have no idea why but they do! I am not trying to hide behind my Bible or anything else...
And Camille Toe, as for the school board permitting or not permitting Roy Gill to host a foreign exchange student, if you had any knowledge about the process you would know that the school board has NOTHING to do with that! ANYONE can host a foreign exchange student and that is handled/controlled/decided upon by an agency, NOT the school board!!! AND, this post is about Jody Lusk, NOT Roy Gill. If you want to discuss him, then start another post! Also, you stated that this girl "WAS OLD enough to know right from wrong and she KNEW this was "wrong."
She was spurned on by the power she felt in the power of her ummmm...FEMINITY." How exactly do you know all of these facts? Are you her mother? A family member? Or are you just assuming these things? Because you know what happens when you assume, right? And how do you know that he was trying to evade her and she "KEPT REINFORCING him with REMINDERS of her love via text and phone calls"? Have you been privy to her phone? Have you read the texts messages between them? Have you heard recordings of their phone conversations??? I DIDN'T THINK SO!!! Why don't you do us all a favor and SHUT THE HELL UP!!!
I just hope and pray that this case is taken far away from here and you're not on the jury or you will want to put the 13 year-old child in jail too!

As for him being tempted by the devil, he's absolutely right. The devil tempts us everyday. It started with Adam and Eve. People have to deal with temptations, and he obviously did not deal with his temptation very well. I have a 12 year old daughter. I am a christian man, but had that been my daughter, my temptation would have been to dispose of him in a very nasty, painful manner. I don't think I could have avoided that temptation.

School boards have enough to deal with without having to worry about making sure agencies in charge of foreign exchange students do their jobs! I would hope that they do background checks; however, if they don't, then the blame falls back on the agency, NOT THE SCHOOL BOARD! The school boards duty is to make sure the school is run correctly, everyone does their job, children get a good education, and that everyone is following rules set by the state...their job is NOT to tell other agencies how to run their business!

I know what ya mean about her parents havin fault but they were clueless the girl lied to them and said she was goin to a friends house(btw she made the friend up she didn't even exist) she would just say i'm goin to so in so's house and she left her parents should've met the friends parents but they didn't so i'm sure they have some guilt and wish they could go back and change that but they can't and jody lusk shouldn't have done what he did and he deserves to rot in hell.

This is where I have to disagree with you. This is probably going to sound crude, and I might get some replies, but she is 13. She probably doesn't know enough about sex to know if what she was having was good or not. I don't think there is enough knowledge of the situation by any of us to make the call about why she did it. That is an issue she has to work out with her parents.
