If he was 40 and the young boy was a girl do you think he would have received such a small sentence? Would he also be able to have it removed from his record?

What worries me is the fact that he worked with kids this past summer with 4H at their summer camps He was a counselor. Yet, no mention of this in article.
Wonder if still does & could their be more victims?

Him working with kids this past summer really worries me. He was the counselor when my son was at the 4H camp this summer. My son is younger than the 13yr. Needless to say, this young man may not have known the true age of the boy who received the txt. That may be why he is getting an easier sentence. If he did know, then shouldnt he have to register as a sex offender?

this is ridiculous. they need to also start charging the parents of the underage children who allow their child to chat on social sites and have access to smart phones with these applications. he was 19... not 45..... leave him ALONE.

I think they are saying the 19 year old just graduated. That would be more likely. A 15 year old graduating from high school happens very seldom.

By all means, let's expunge the record of a homosexual pedophile, so some other child has to live through the horror of seeing this man's genitals and possibly even worse. Criminals like this only escalate their behaviors, and the courts should know this. It's truly sickening how our government can allow such lewd acts to go unpunished, knowing that statistically, they will repeat it, if not escalate their behavior.

I gotta weigh in on this one. A 19 year old sending pictures of his wiener to a 13 year old boy is NOT normal and the 19 year old should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

I agree totally Bob.

This man's picture and name are printed in the paper, that information is now public record. Everyone in Rogersville that has children needs to go to the Times News and commit this guy to memory, because I guaran-damn-tee you this will not be the last time this guy makes the newspapers. In fact, this is exactly how all child predators and serial rapists start out. This guy is just getting started, and next time it might be your own kids.

This dirtbag and dirtbags like him do not need help, sympathy, or support. And most certainly not forgiveness or understanding. Why not? Because there is no cure for this kind of behavior, and sexual offenders are always repeat offenders. Period. You can't deny what I am saying and anyone that does is a fool.

The best thing, the only thing you can do is stay clear of people like this, for your own sake. You can't trust them, our society lets them run loose, we don't keep track of them. It's your responsibility to be aware that they are in your neighborhood.

Another thing to keep in mind, if his only punishment is probation then that is the same thing as no punishment at all. In case you are not familiar with probation, basically at the end of every month you are required to fill out a reporting form. You write in your name, you make a list of any crimes you committed that month (if any), and you mail this form back to your probation officer. That's the sum total of probation. In the beginning of probation, the offenders are required to meet with their probation officer in person to deliver the reporting form, but after a few months the probation office and court will handle all contact by mail. It's all automated, they never see you again, you might not even be in the country anymore.

Think about that one for a moment. Probation is more than appropriate if you are a soccer mom and you are caught shoplifting or speeding... BUT.... read the Times article again, read what this guy has been doing in his free time, then ask yourself if probation is the answer.

And remember, what is printed in the article is just part of the story. The only reason he was charged with this crime is because someone bothered to save some of his messages as evidence against him. But most of the time when crime happens there aren't always pictures to prove that it happened, and thus there are no charges. God only knows what else this guy has been up to, probably much more that we don't know about.
