Knowing him as a child I cannot imagine that he would have done this. If he has, he needs to be off the streets.

Why did this girl come forward 4 years later. Sounds like a set up to me.....
Girls can say rape when they don't get their way and the man has to suffer.
Alex I hope you get the best lawyer and fight til the end. Remember Big Ben is fighting the same thing..... Good luck

Wow - excuse me?? You seriously have trouble understanding why a 14 year old girl wouldn't come forward? Really? Are you that dim witted?

At times children will lie for a way out on other things. I am not saying guilt or innocence, however if a parent doesn't believe their child will lie has not been around their child much.
Destroying a persons life is not what we want done. Judge in court and not on the computer.

Completely disgraceful to the human race. Pigs such as this deserve only the best punishment "best meaning most harshest".
There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of act on anybody. Absolutely none no matter who it is unless you all wanna be animals like these pigs.

I am a mother to 4 daughters ages 9, 12, 14, and 17 so my reasons are clear for why I think pigs like this need to be castrated and tortured and locked up for life!!!

If he did it, may he find prison to be an extremely abusive place (as it so often is for child rapists).

There is No way he did this. Even the dialog used to describe what he supposedly said to the girl is not Alex. I pray the truth is revealed so that an innocent name can be cleared. ANY rapist,should pay for their crime, but I truly do not believe that in this case we are dealing with a rapist.

Wow... that's a tough one. While you want to believe the child and anyone can understand why she wouldn't immediately come forward... almost 4 years later? Why now? Why not last year? Why not next year? What physical evidence is there? Did the police obtain any semblance of a spoken confession through a wiretap or something? The police of course will do a thorough job investigating all the of tangibles and intangibles involving this case... their connections, associations, etc... but even if it turns out that he is completely innocent... his reputation and name are ruined. How does he get that back? Anyone with a daughter will say fry him of course... but what if he is innocent? The truth will come out, and then we will know...

I guess no one can answer the question of guilty or not guilty as this time, but something caught my eye in the article. The girl said she and her siblings were visiting their mother and she went into another room to lie down. When this man came into her room, where was the mother? Where were the siblings? No one noticed he was missing from the group? Certainly even with the child struggling they could have heard it. Just a question I have been asking myself.

I agree with you. The words that he supposedly said are not Alex. I agree that I truly believe he is not the rapist in this case. If you knew Alex you would know that he did not do this. I have know this young man since he was 13 or 14 and this is not him.

i am i teenage girl and i know for a fact if i would have been raped i would have told someone immeditly no matter what or i would have made up some exucuse to go to the hospital. there is no way a girl would wait so long to tell someone. and if she was raped she would have had to show something weird like a face expression or the way she acted around him. i think this is all a set up cause there is really no evidence that the police can pull now about it cause it happened so long ago. if he is innocent i want this girl punished cause obvisly shes disturbed.

I hope they put him in general population. Let the other prisoners know what he did first.
