I've received intimate texts obviously meant for another person. It happens. Kids need to be careful when they sext each other.

This girl is guilty also. She knew his age, and her actions were inappropriate.
She needs counseling and probationary supervision. She knowingly and willingly met this man and engaged in sexual activity with him. She participated in this crime as well.

And she obviously has some issues that need to be addressed to help prevent her from taking a risk like this again. This would not have happened without her assistance.

The errant text didn't lead to a charge of rape. The RAPE led to a charge of rape.

She is a child......a 29 year old who has sex with a child is a criminal, no matter how much a CHILD "asked for it".

I KNEW this response was coming.
No one ever learns.
Listen, I'm not trying to take away ANY of the males guilt.
I'm pointing out the the female us guilty as well.
Why is it the American public always needs to be lead by the hand down any trail of logic?

They are both at fault!! If texts were misleading she should have never text him again but did so. she was speaking with her friend before hand about dating an older man..As a parent of a 14 year old she should have been supervised and they should be checking her phone.Maybe he needs counseling as well after all his mind is much younger than his age according to documentation on record.. When my daughter went out you bet I knew were she was and with whom..Yes he has had a rough life but some of his family has been there for him..I should know!

Just another example of some evil evil female luring an honest man to his demise! This girl probably had this planned from the beginning!
"Errant text " my ASS! How many other men has she destroyed with her vagina? Do we even know? I bet there is a whole wing on some prison somewhere filling up with the men she has stolen semen from.
Where is the JUSTICE!?!?

Thanks for sharing how mentally screwed up you are. You sound like a serial rapist with your attitude towards women and children. BTW this IS a child in the article, not a woman.

I know how old she is sister. Who are you, her coach? Did you teach her her evil ways? How many men's lives have YOU destroyed?
How many homes and retirement plans have you plundered with YOUR vagina? Four, five?
Just because she started early doesn't mean its any less evil.

This girl is guilty as well! She wasn't lied to, or tricked, or promised something that was later denied. She knew how old he was, discussed it with friends, and then willingly went to meet this guy to have sex with him.
No lies, no misrepresentation, no subterfuge.
She was the second half of a pair who committed a crime.
She has the Pam Smart gene, you can count on it.
Just watch the bodies pile up.

Exactly. This probably wasnt her first destructive act, and it wont be her last. Dont worry about protecting her from this older guy, who is going to protect the rest of us from her? How many guys has she already taken down?

Yes, she's a little Lolita who goes around seducing grown men.
They are the adults, she is a child.
They are pedophiles. She is a child...no matter how much she says she wants it...she is a CHILD.

So what's your point? She's NOT guilty because she is a child?
There are lots of children in prisons and detention centers.
She should be one of them.
You seem to be stubbornly and probably intentionally stuck on the fact that she is a child. Have you heard anyone deny her age? No, no one has denied she was a child.
We still find her culpable in this crime.
She is guilty, just like he is REGARDLESS OF HER AGE.
She is a child who arranged to have sex with an adult, got to the location, removed her own clothes, and spread her legs.
Don't you have a problem with that? I do, and I think she needs to be dealt with as severely as the adult in this case.

And you seem stubbornly intent on defending a pedophile.
How young does she have to be to make the man responsible? If she was 12 would that be young enough? Ten? the fact that she arranged to sex with an ADULT...why don't you think the adult should be held responsible.....he couldn't help himself? She was TOO willing?
Gross.....
She was the child, he was the ADULT, so yes, that makes him the CRIMINAL
And....Yes, I think there is ahuge problem with the
