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.

I've traveled and known patch for YEARS!!!!
He wouldnt do this. He' s always had hot girlfriends. and they were all women not girls. its easy to judge someone with out knowing them. I know this situation and i know this girl wanted to hook up with him for security. it was her hoping she could be takin under his wing. when he refused she prob lashed it in the only way she could. by acusing him of this. its retarded. maybe I should acuse Madonna of having sex with me when I was 6 so she can be arrested . then I can actually get her attention along with the rest of the world.lol

So it was wrong that he did that but. I skate with him occasionally at the skate park and contests. He get very good looking women but he some reason did this. ITS CALLED TEMPTATION. She was willing to do this. I also know this girl who is a skateboarder who is trying to get out in the industry. So now she sleeps with him and gets international knownw. I wounder...hmmmm well he was wrong and should be punished but this was not molestation. hah anything but.

Mohammed's wife Aisha was betrothed to him at age 6 and their marriage was consummated when she turned 9. She is often referred to as his "most favorite wife."

And Mohammed don't even skate.

Patch is accused of letting the 15-year-old sleep at his house and having sex with her in his room on April 11, 2008, prosecutors said.

The girl later told her parents, who contacted police, prosecutors said.

Patch said Tuesday that he and the 15-year-old have known each other for about three years.

“We skated a lot of the same places,” he said.

While declining to comment on the allegation, Patch said that the truth will come out.

“She ran away, like, three days before,” Patch said.“She called all kinds of people looking for a place to stay. She called me. I told her I wasn’t coming home that night. I came home at two in the morning, and she was there outside my house.”

He let the girl sleep over and her father came to pick her up the next day, Patch said.

Patch says police interviewed him after the girl told her parents she was pregnant. Reportedly, he said this:

“If she’s pregnant, the cops have my DNA,” Patch said.

Sounds to me like this girl got pregnant and was trying to falsely pin it on Patch.

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! What happened to "Innocent until proven guilty"??? I know Brian personally and he is a mature gentleman when it comes to the ladies. He has the hottest WOMEN throwing themselves at him on a daily basis and is always highly selective when he chooses his dates. He works consciously to protect what is left of his fading reputation. His greatest joy comes from helping under-privaledged youth. If you know the real Brian, then you know this! It is no surprise to find him engaging with lonely kids who approach him at skate parks but that does NOT make him a sexual predator. This girl has a history of family problems and is desperate for attention. When are we going to receive the next update on this case? Where's a recent article??? I bet the family is trying to settle out of court and milk him for money he doesnt even have.....

THE BRIAN PATCH
Anyone who reads this should know I am Julie's friend and this is a lie. She told me the whole story the next day. She needed a place to stay becuase she ran away from her father. you know how teens have that rebelious time in life. Brian was her best friend, he was a coach to her. She need a place to stay, called him becuase no one else would answer the phone. he answered said he had to finish work. She waited at the seven eleven down the street. he got home she went to his house stayed in the other room woke up the next morning and her dad came and picked her up. She didn't want anything to happen to patch. Patch is a good guy, This a bunch of bullshit!
Her dad made her go to the poilce station because he thought she was prego. OK so yeah, and she doesn't have a 18 year old boyfriend. She had a 17 year old boy friend and they broke up. She told me she is sorry for what happened and would love to help Patch. She is back at church now and is trying to change her life for the better. Julie didn't want any bullshit on this and would have gone to the police station but her dad thought she was pregnat. This was all a big mistake. She was stressed before a contest because she really wanted to take first. So PLease! Don't say shit if you don't know facts! This is all a big mistake

a Friend......the truth will prevail and you don't know the story. You are not Julie's friend and the BS you wrote is nothing but lies. The Judge will decide what is best and even Julie can't do anything to save her precious BP

oh yeah here's a little scripture

Those who quote scripture do not have a thought in their empty, pea brain head!
Get a life you deranged "christian" kooks.
If you think church will help Julie, you are sadly mistaken.

Yeah too bad the real truth is that she ran away, knocked on his front door and told him that her dad was beating her. Than she slept on his couch. She than became upset that he eventually made her leave, this crushed her HUGE ego(16 and pro sksteboarder shd thought she could get whoever she wants) she tried to contact him, he REJECTED her than a month later her dad found out where she went whdn she ran away, was outraged, had money, and alot of money for a lawyer than brought Patch down with a pkea deal. Get your facts straight people. Oh wait guess you wouldnt be able to know shit if you dont even skate with these people. Dont jump to conclusions we all know the media will never tell the REAL story
