Age of consent law should be lowered to 16, he'd be charged anyway though.

The law here is age 18. I was a 15 year old girl , and at that age the minds are so young and immature. At that age no grown man should take advantage of that. Why not find a young and immature girl at 18? Leave little children alone! If I had a 15 year old daughter that got knocked up by a 36 year old man, He would get a serious beat down! He just ruined her life!

SKATEBOARDING IS NOT A CRIME.

Don't confuse that with this pedophile.

Since you know so much maybe you'll be able to
tell us if waterboarding the accused will reveal
the truth and if the accused skateboard(s) can
be employed by trained interrogation specialists
to help resolve future crimes rather than just being limited to wheel usage. Put some backbone
to more hard issues rather than fancy foot-work.
Tell me it isn't a big stretch for Officialdom
outside America to address USA in like-manner.
Has the movie 'Clockwork Orange' any import here?

CORRECTION TO ABOVE

Brian Patch is the kindest guy that wears his heart on his sleave. He would never do that. He gets so many girls thrown at him and they are all hot - she probably threw herself at him too. In fact she "COULD HAVE" had a fake ID too. LOTS do these days. How is he suppose to know if she is 15. 15 year old look really old and are really slutty these days. I have heard from 13 years old what even the 13 year olds do in high school these days. They keep getting youngerand younger and looking trashier and trashier LIKE BRITNEY SPEARS I blame her parents. THey should be monitoring a 15 year old where abouts and what she is doing. I would charge the parents for child endangerment. Besides a 15 and 18 year old mind set are not that different even if she was 18. BRIAN PATCH IS NOT A
CHILD MOLESTER OR A CRIMINAL BY ANY MEANS. HE SHOULD NOT BE IN THAT PIG STY AND SHOULD BE OUT SKATING WITH THE REST.

....AND I AGREE..........

what!! because he skates and can throw down.you try and find a way to defend him.Brian is 36!!!
what the hell was he doing with a 15 year old.
he should have used his brian.there is something wrong with him,if infact he did it.the crazy thing is that 80% of skating is hating on each other.at least thats what it has come too.and yet you come on here defending him.give your head a shake!!

Only in America this would happen. Not in Europe. 15 years old is age of consent in Sweden. It's human nature if is was consent.I hope for the BP's sake he Patches up the misunderstanding and gets back to work soon. If it was a misunderstanding or a girls broken heart, who knows? We all will have to see what the jury decides. Who knows maybe she showed him a fake ID? Maybe she seduced him.

mayb he jsut didnt asked in england ive see 6 year old girls walk around town in bikinis its disgustin the thing is there with there parents thats even worse so it is pretty easily for a girl to go out all dressed up at the age of 15 parents have no care for the way there kids dress these days and tbh if i go out clubbing i dont tend to ask for ID you just assume that the girl is old enough cos she looks old enough ok perhaps if you have strong doubts you will say are you really 18. if he new her age and really did wat he did then he should be in prison but if she rly lied and had fake ID even dressing slutty and making urself older shld be looked into she shld be the one going to jail for putting the guy through hell and smearing his name

girls starting at a young age... 12yo.

Many of nieces at 12-14 are wearing very low rise jeans and pants, and belly showing and wearing short short shorts with PINK on the back and we know what that means...

We sexualize girls and to some degree boys.

People really should open their eyes and go to the boardwalk if you want to see what 12-18 yo are doing.

I know Brian as a very, very nice and kind friend and just do not believe that he did anything mean to this girl. Why does he get arrested after 3 weeks??? It seems she went to the police pretty late .... or was she just mad at him for another reason .... anyway - we all don't know what really happened. I just wish all the best to Brian.

Wait a minute, i know this guy and I would like to say first, what happened to innocent until proven guilty?
He didn't do this, you should see this girl, she's troubled, shes a troubled teen that clearly does not yet understand the long term effects of her current decisions.
This whole things disgusts me, the fact that this stupid selfish child had the power to cry wolf and destroy a man's reputation like this.
