Nicholas Delgado is no longer associated with JC Penney.
Hopefully the authorities will do a thorough back ground
check so he will not continue hurting children.

What they aren't telling you is he is gay & it was a young man.

Actually, he is not gay. However, it was a young man. Does that really make a difference though? His actions were inappropriate regardless. I know this man and he is struggling with what he's done. Let's not all jump to conclusions.

I know this man, too. This is not a question of whether or not he is gay or people are jumping to conclusions. He is a good man with a good heart. Do not minimize the situation by saying that he is struggling with his "inappropriate behavior". He has been charged with felony child abuse for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a juvenile. He may be struggling but there is a victim who is also struggling. Love your friend by helping him own what he has done. Anything less is a disservice to him and his alleged victim. My hope for him is that he takes this time to make amends to his alleged victim and to those he has harmed along the way.

I think you misinterpreted my comment. I in no way intended to minimize his actions. I didn't use the words "inappropriate behavior" either. I said "his actions were inappropriate regardless" (translation = wrong) because that is the legal term for what he was charged with and I was trying to be polite and not pass judgement publicy. That said, I am not "in his corner." I no longer consider him a friend... He is someone I once trusted and respected and it hurts me to the core that he would do this. I cannot and will not help him "own" this... he has to do that himself. I don't think he can make amends to his victim. How would that even be possible? The justice system and God will hold him accountable, but what he's done cannot be made right.

This man lived in my neighborhood. His poor family, and Wife. She is now left alone with 7 kids. He should be put in prison. I can not believe he once interacted with my family. My prayers are with his wife, and children.

He was convicted of "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" and sentenced to one year probation. He is not to be around any children under 18 - EXCEPT his own children.

Nic is gay, his mother told us (employees of his) that he watched gay porn alot while he was a teenager and older. He bought a phone for the boy he was "having a relationship with" so thye could talk because his parents took his away. Nic is a freak and deserves to burn in hell. I hate that he still lives in this town. He should have went to prison for what he did instead of a little slap on the wrist.

This incident is very difficult for all involved. Nick has done many good things in his life which are all negated because he allowed himself to commit an unlawful, unwholesome, and inexcusable act of self gratification at the expense of others. He has lost his family, his employment, his reputation and his self respect. Everyone loses. I hurt for all of them. His enemies will heal but those who love and care for him must travel the longest road to recovery. He has been held accountable by the law of the land and is now at the mercy of his conscience and his Savior.

It angers me to the core that this completely inaccurate article remains publicly on the web. Not only were the facts orginally reported completely WRONG, the only reason it is not considered libelous and subject to immediate removal is that the police officer (who lied about the facts) was the source and cannot be sued because the comments were reporting on the investigation. Not only was the alleged offense not a felony, it was a misdemeanor, contributing to the deliquency of a minor, and not even an offense that required registry as a sex offender. The "victim" was of the age of legal consent in Nebraska (17) at the time of ALL of the alleged contact. The police officer was well aware of the age of the "victim" at the time this article was written and it is a SHAME that this kind of ridiculous and judgmental behavior should have gone on this long. Shame on you ALL.

17 and 34 you do the math and Shame on You! It was wrong and nothing normal about a 34 yrold married male having a sexual relationship with a 17 year old male. But if I ever decide to rob a bank or do something to break the law I would want Misinformation on my side to saying "Shame on you ALL!"

This enrages me to the core! I have been listening to this man pat himself on the back and pretend to be a "hero" on a facebook group called -- Mormons Building Bridges -- where they claim to be building a bridge of understanding between the LDS religion and the gay community. Problem is this.... Nic is in the group and one of the "favorites" as a gay male who is currently "celebate" he states he was excommunicated from his church because he is gay. But what he is failing to leave out is, the real story is what happened above. This group is protecting him and allowing him to hide behind his Narcacistic personality. He is portraying himself as a great guy and they are eating out of his lap.
Lets not forget here, this guy was 34 at the time, this article states the child was 15, but in other reports i have read 17. EITHER WAY we are talking about a FULL GROWN ADULT having a sexual relationship with a child who is still in high school and living under his families roof. Which is why as stated above Nic purchased a cell phone for the victim so his parents wouldn't find out. SICK SICK SICK!!! This has NOTHING to do with him being gay, this has to do with him taking advantage of a young boy and having sex with him. I don't care if someone is gay or straight. If an ADULT has a sexual relationship with a kid then it is wrong and should be dealt with accordingly!
I DO feel bad for his wife and the kids. I can only imagine the pain she has gone through. However....Nic cannot hide behind his wife and kids in order to detract from people talking about it. He cannot hide out in groups like the Mormons buidling bridges and pretend to be this wonderful guy. There are YOUNG people that join these online groups. Nic is NOT supposed to be interacting with anyone under 18 and there is not a way to know he isn't doing so in these online groups. As an active member of my church i do not feel he should be in that group. My 16 year old gay son is also a part of the MBB page and i have told him he is NOT allowed to speak to Nic under any circumstances!

I have known Nic for years and am wondering why the sudden interest in him again? I noticed that there are two new comments on here in regards to this situation. Has something new happened? I searched facebook for him and was unable to find his profile at all? So it has either been deleted by him or by facebook itself. I have been following this case and was very surprised by the determination. I knew the boy involved and he was only 16 at the time of the relationship. The whole situation was just crazy! I hope that Nic, his family, and his victim get the help that they need to put their lives back together. However I think that some type of punishment should have been imposed upon 'poor' Nic. Getting probation was a little easy in my opinion! That is just an open sign for any sex offender saying the 16 year olds are open season!

Unfortunately you know nothing about me. I am a lawyer and understand the law. I did not say that the relationship was moral, or right or normal or anything else. All I did was actually describe the facts of the situation since I have reviewed all the legal documents and am familiar with the actual facts of the situation. The shame on you all comments was for continuing the inaccurate gossip. He was properly charged with the crime he committed and accepted the punishment he was given. It is no different than high school girls sleeping with older men in town and I know for a fact that was a FREQUENT occurrence when I grew up and lived in North Platte, and most often those men were not even charged.

Nic (and anyone else who engaged in that behavior) did something really, really wrong and was punished accordingly.

All you b*****s can just shut up yes he did something really bad but what we need to do forgive that's what the Savior would've done! NO he will not go to hell! I know Nic really well and it hurt me too when he did this and it made me mad too! But you people should be ashamed of yourselves for this! I bet most of you have done something bad too! Like steal, hurt someone too! Would you like to be in Nic's situation, No! So stop acting like you've never done anything wrong even if it was small! SO shutup and forget and forgive!

It is amazing to see the defenses here of this predator- there is nothing normal about a 15 year old hooking up with a 35 year old- hetero or homo- sexual. To say we have all done something about this narcecistic rapist- the saddest thing is that he( i assume nic is the one posting above as the "lawyer")- he sees what he did as totally normal even now and due to the recent nature of the posts it is clear that this creep has no remose for his rape- shame on him. Given that he still believes what he did was right, I wonder how many more children this predetor will rape. Amd nic- you know you are reading- this has nothing to do with your being gay or hetero- it has everytjing to do with molesting children.

I worked at macys with this man... I resigned. In my paper work I wrote that I was leaving the company because he was overly friendly to the young boys. I wrote that he was taking them out to lunch and whinning and dinning them. I wrote that he was too close to certain boys and that it was creepy. I wrote that he displayed pedophile actions.
