Going to Prison for 5 years, just for looking at pics is dumb,the law stupid, The law can come into your house and tell you what you can look at, And if they don"t like it , they can put you in prison,( He was just looking) All men like to look at pics, There going to have to build a lot of prisons, The law has nothing else to do with there time, They will go out of there way to wreck your life......

More insanity. If this guy had been driving drunk and run over a kid and put the kid in a wheelchair for life, he'd have just paid a fine and that would be it.

Sammy, you're certainly entitled to your opinion. Myself, and I believe most of society don't see it as you do. Is there any sexual crime you feel one should be arrested for committing?

Ralph) Thank you for your opinion, It was fun talking to you, The laws are crazy in the U.S. It seems like everyone in Florida is going to prison for a sex crime,,,In Russia we don"t hear about sex crimes,,,If a young man dates a 15 or 16 years old girl no one cares, Sex is not a big thing in Russia, everybodys doing it....Ralph..Its 1:55am Its time to say Good night..

Ralph) I live in Naples, Fl, I have been here about 6ys, I am not trying to hide anything, and I don"t wish people to believe Russia is a better then the U,S... Russia is like another world, If you been to Europe, you would know how people feel about there sex life"s with a younger girl, Well look at me, I"m 67ys old my wife is 42ys..I"m happy, So maybe being with a young girl does works, We will be moving back to Russia in 7 months,,We have a farm there.....It was good talking to you....5:44pm

For some people it is easier to just let the kid's do whatever they want, rather than take the time to make sure they do not ruin their lives. At 14 you have NO IDEA of what the heck life is all about. I believe in letting a child be a child, it only happens once in a lifetime. There is plenty of time for the adult thing, when you are actually an adult. I feel sad for any child who has never been able to be a child because of parents wanting them to grow up too fast so they do not have to be responsible for them anymore. You have a very caveman like approach to child rearing.

First of all, dating is fine at 16, having sex IS NOT. Too bad you do not know the difference.

SPEAK FOR YOURSELF!! And if you think it is o.k. to look at young children, you need some psychiatric help.

The fact that those of you who are bad mouthing my best friend whom I've known since I was 13 is disgusting. He has always been a good kid who just stumbled upon something, which I don't believe is good, but a crime that the punishment does not fit. I see many parts of this story that have been left out. How old were the so called children in the pictures? How about the fact that he was 19 when he looked at these pictures. People who are just out of high school might not see anything wrong with dating a 16 year old. But going back to what the judge sentenced him to is way to harsh and I will do all in my power to help my best friend because this was just bad judgement and I truly believe he is sorry and is not some sort of pedophile.
