Something is seriously wrong on both sides here. Can't get back in the house? Where was the 'mother'? Nothing good happens with kids on any of these 'social networking' sites.

Castration with a rusty steak knife will be an appropriate punishment for this sick bastard.

Why did she call this guy to pick her up from the movies? Did her Mom not know she was at the movies? Did they not set up a time for being picked up by a parent? Why did the Mother not call police if she never returned home after the movies? No key to the house to get back in? Could she not have called her Mom to let her back in the house? Sorry this whole thing makes no sense to me. And why would she return back to his house again? What happened to the other friend who he also gave a ride to?

To What: I believe the article said the mother went driving around Hanover looking for her daughter when she didn't come home at 11pm. So most likely she was still out looking for her, when the girl got home and the girl chose not to wait around for her mom.

This kind of thing is scary anytime, but when it happens in our own town, its chilling.

"When she confronted him Sept. 27, police said, McWilliams ran into the house and locked the door. She called Hanover Police, who then arrived, went into the residence and found the girl in the basement, according to court documents.

On Sept. 30, the girl and her mother reported the incident to Conewago Township Police, who then had her phone McWilliams and record the call, police said."

What the heck is going on there?
So the police came to his house, found a 15 year old girl padlocked in his basement but the Hanover Police didn't do anything more but free the girl? Then the mother reports it to Conewago Township Police 3 days later? I really hope I am missing something here. Was he not arrested by the Hanover Police on the 27th when they found a kidnapped minor in his house?

Who lets there 15yr old kids out that late without knowing where they are, maybe the mother wasn't home either and didn't care of the kid was home or not.

When will these kids learn not to talk to people they do not know on the computer.
No cell phone for Mom? This girl was looking for trouble. Not that anyone wants to see her get hurt.

if someone did this to my daughter , i would shoot the bastard with a shotgun in his private area. street justice works better then the court system. look up megan's law and see who is on the list in your area. its good to check out especially if you have children.

It is not the social Networking sites that are the problem, it is the lack of parenting. Informed parents know what is going on in their child's life. They know their friends, what is going on at school, where they are go when they leave the house, and what is on their My Space/Face Book pages. They have the passwords to get to their child's sites and even have their own sites so to keep up with things.

How could this be you say... They teach what is right and what is not from the time they are very small. They talk to them everyday and they have their lives centered around their children and not themselves.

As to the story, It all seems very fishy. Sometime I would with that the ES reporters would do a little digging and get all the facts before they send and article in.

Because the house is in Conewago Township not Hanover Borough. Conewago Twp Pd was informed of the incident by Hanover PD and they made the arrest because they have jurisdiction. Perhaps you really should know what you are talking about before you run off at the mouth.

I think there is a lot more to the story, than what was released so far. Watch me on "to Catch A Pretator" to see the truth.

The problem is that some parents allow their children access to these predators. Myspace and other sites like that need to be banned. What is wrong with parents these days? Have they set their standards so low for their children that when something terrible happens they have have a blank face on asking themselves what? How could this have happened to my sweet child? WAKE UP PARENTS!!! STOP TREATING YOUR CHILDREN LIKE THEY ARE YOUR FRIENDS AND START TREATING THEM AS A PRECIOUS GEM THAT NEED GUIDENCE, LOVE, SUPPORT AND RULES!!!!!!!!!! SAY NO TO SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES!!!!!!!!!! AND FOR THAT INNOCENT YOUNG GIRL, KNOW THE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG SO YOU CAN GROW UP AND HAVE POSSITVE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE WHO CARE ABOUT YOU!

why is a 15 year old out at that time of the morning and WHY was she locked out of her house? Why didn't she knocked on the door to wake up her parents? Why call someone you just met on MySpace to come and pick you up? Why go back to HIS house, alone, because you can't get into the safety of your own home? The whole thing sounds strange to me. Might be one of the cases where the girl DID have sex with this guy and had different thoughts afterward and decided to cry rape!!!!! This story definitely needs major investigation.

Just wondering does the Hanover P.D. have the phone number for Conewago township? Why does an arrest take three days? I bet if they found some 'dope' in the house they would've called and had an arrest immediatly!

This whole story sounds a little screwy to me. Must be more to it. Seems to have a lot of unexplained and loose ends.

sounds like mom should be on the female roster in the same prison as the rapist. this is what u call trash. hope the girl receives guidence in life before she becomes a mother. none of us are perfect , but this mom sounds beyond imperfect.
