What a piece of $hit. If some 30 year old guy had sexual encounters with my daughter I would kill his ****!!!!
I was that 14 yr old that looked 16.

I was that girl that drove my 30 yr old crush (that lived across from my school) crazy!

And yes, my father threatened him, although that did'nt stop me.

It was wrong, but it was consensual. We have murderer's and rapists in this country who get less time.

The article says the GIRL was working as a special ed teacher. Probably just bad writing and editing - par for the MC course.

The guy's a creep.

"statutory" rape is NOT rape! It is a legality issue.

Get a grip people teens want this sometimes they should be held accountable also

He was a muslim and his profit married an 6 year old girl, he had sex with her at age 8. So, 14 is well over the acceptable age for them. Obama is a muslim and you are going to vote for him. As for me, I'm going to vote for "the man".

I said "profit" because no "prophet" would do such a thing.

I hear you. I am in my kids life (twins 5 1/2 year old boy and girl)big time. When I read stuff like this article it kills me. And yes I agree with you where were the parents.
I agree with your comments 100 percent...but sometimes we have to know the situation of the family before we go and ask where are the parents. Kids these days act all innocent and naive around their parents and family...but around their friends another. Whose to say that the girl was a goody two shoes around her parents, bringing in good grades from school, hence earning their trust and was the Whore of Texas behind their back. Every mature parent knows that you cannot watch your teenage child 24/7. If this was so, then you wouldn't have 5 thru 10 year olds sexually abused by strangers. I'm not saying that this falls in every category...but, it amazes me that everytime a story comes up in this subject....it's always and I really mean ALWAYS, where's the parents!!!

Yes, this guy is scum but ask yourself this...What if it had been a 30 yer old woman and a 14 year old boy? Would you be as offended? Do you think the judge would have give her a 10 - 20 year sentence? Look at the cases where it's a female teacher having sex with a male student and you'll see a huge double standard. Female offenders get a year or two where male offenders get significantly more...good old American justice.

Shouldn't this 14 year old sexual searcher be in a program for entrapment and supervision of her sexual promiscuity. How many other men did she have sex with? Obviously she has been experienced with this networking and will coninute to do so if she is not under probationery supervision. I thought juveniles were taken into custody to teach them moral accountability. Sincer her parents obviously approve of her ventures some authorities should take over her supervision.

Travesty of Justice

What a travesty of justice. Teacher had no prior criminal record. Had consensual relationship with 14 year old girl (he was 29 at the time) and gets 10-20 years. Drug dealers and rapists get less. He made the mistake of getting involved with someone too young but the punishment here does not fit the crime. This was a consensual relationship, she agreed to go with him, no coercion here. This witch hunt against older men with younger women is ridiculous. This girl went with him willingly and he gets 10-20. RIDICULOUS!
