Did I say it was ok???? No I said wow a 17 yo boy looking at naked women. The news and this thread made it sound like he was sending nude pics of himself. I didn't see anything about him sending anything to younger children unless you are talking about the 16yo. I will wait and then judge I like to have all the facts first before I publicly hang someone. And no I don't know this person and no I'm not taking up for him I just like the facts from the right source not from hearsay.
Well Bushy Here read this for yourself: This I copied and pasted here for you from Fox59 news page, HOPE THIS CLEARS IT UP FOR YOU!!
He had taken it upon himself to look him up on Facebook and contact him through text messaging," said Heather Lee, another victim's guardian. She did not know about the pictures until the detective on the case called her. Her 16-year-old family member's name was brought up in conversations between Gilbert and police.
Police have identified FOUR MALE UNDERAGE VICTIMS who have gone on record stating they had received the pictures. Authorities also said Gilbert confessed to the crimes.
"He gave the statement that he thought 16 was an appropriate age to be sending those messages," said Craig Pennington, the Connersville Police Detective on the case.
Pennington said there was no mention of intent. He also said the photos depicted nudity and different sex acts. Gilbert, who now faces 16 felony charges, was not in any of the photos.
"In reality, in my experience, this is probably not all that has been done," said Pennington.
"If he can't control what he sends on the internet, or on a cell phone, he is right where he belongs," said Osborn.
The Indiana State Police cyber crime unit is in the process of reviewing the cell phone evidence.
