"after being taunted in school about the incident" interesting that grown adults allowed that to happen and did not pull her out of that situation.... Knowing full well that the information would get out to irresponsible teenagers.
Even more interesting that grown adults would attempt to blame the teenagers for their behavior.
Animals pure and simple.

I guess a guy like that has no conscience to bother him, but the thought of this death on my hands would dog me every day. I don't expect him to man-up and confess.

Boy is this kid a dope and poorly advised. He is on Fox 2 at this moment admitting to statutory rape. He should have kept his mouth shut. Now I think he opens the door to legal trouble.

It would not happen for a few years, but that young man would not appreciate how sick this father would get in torturing him till he begs for me to silence his cries of pain. Small price to pay for the crime he is getting away with.

I would think that he is even more culpable now that there is a death involved. I would go for some kind of negligent homicide or manslaughter along with the rape. If it were not for HIS actions, the young lady would still be alive. How does killing herself absolve this scum from what he is guilty of?

The same way it does for a gangster who kills some one but the only witness ups and dies. Just one of the downfalls of our justice system. Hopefully this young man learns from this and does something productive with his life!

Mr. Brisco, he has perfected the crime of rape. Is this productive enough? This animal isn't some small boy with his hands caught in the cookie jar. He is old enough to know better about the life his rape has taken. This animal feels no remorse, and blames his victims parents for HER failings.

Im not stick up for the turd or saying he is a saint lol. Im just stating how stuff like this happens and hopefully he learns from it and doesnt become a carrer criminal.

But also all we know for sure is that his was guilty of stat rape. Many times men get blamed for stuff like this cause the woman felt guilty the next day, or her parents found out and made her lie about it. Im not saying this is the case by any means, but with out her side of the story or someone elses that cooroborates this its still only stat rape. Also I wouldnt consider an 18yo HS student who commits stat rape with another student that is 14 a hardcore rapist that is scum of the earth.

Again just making these statements based on the facts available, we will prob never know the whole story.

We're talking "trailer park trash" here folks. The boy was raised by his granny.
He seems to have walked on the Samantha Kelly case, but the prosecutor will work hard to find something. And it appears now that another similar case was already on the radar screen so expect a lot of pressure to make that case work.

Some of you people need to rid of your tunnel visioned rose colored glasses and lose the ignorance.

The Joseph Tarnopolski may not have been a wise kid for engaging in sexual intercourse with a 14 year old, but so many are quick to judge it as involuntary rape.

Today's society instills an increasing problem of sexuality and appearance, especially from young teen girls who feel the need to "fit in" or "be loved". The level of insecurity if overwhelming.

The facts are Samatha Kelly reported two difference stories. One story to the police and the other to the news. The story told by Joseph had no proof of inaccuracy. When he told Samatha he wasn't interested in sex again, how do you know it didn't put her deeper into a depressive state? Only then, after he said no, did she report to the police. If it was rape, why not sooner?

Bottom line, there are many unanswered questions but many of you are so quick to judge because she committed suicide, thus, putting the full blame on Joseph. Kids are committing suicide for many reasons and rejection is one at the top.

Get over your high and mighty ignorance with quick judgments without thinking or knowing the facts.

It's pathetic how many of you place blame so easily when you have skeletons in your closets also.
