I am appalled at what happened to that little girl. My heart goes out to her. What I want to know is WHERE THE H*** was her parents? WHERE was the supervision? They should not be allowed to be parents! This poor little child will be damaged for a LONG time to come. Those men should NEVER be allowed on the streets again!!!! Where is the update to this story? Do they just report it as an everyday thing & forget it? The coverage is bleak at best. I'd like to see follow-up! Keep your children close.

I know very little about this story, but I, too, am appalled IF it happened the way people might assume it happened.

Supposing the scenario was this: They were all partying together...the guys might've thought she was 18, after all, she was at a party and could possibly have looked a lot older than 13. One thing led to another, then bing, bang, boom...someone, who has regretted her choices, cries rape.

BUT, if she is truly an innocent 13 year old and these three truly raped her, then they, as well as her parents, should be charged. On the other hand, her parents might've thought she was spending the night with another innocent 13 year old.

Bottom line, there are many sides to a story.

Sorry but I have never seen a 13 year old that looked old enough to be 18... On the very slim chance that a 13 year old child did possibly look any where near 18 either way if she was intoxicated even more of a reason to charge these jerks with rape. Three against one is not a good time, it's assault... If it was a 13 year old boy and 3 older men how would you feel about it? I’m sure if the men all said the boy looked 18 and he was “asking for it” people would still scream that it was rape and the men would go to jail for life and be labled as child molesters, but since it’s “just a girl” every one is just like oh well I’m sure she asked for it. 13 is just a baby! She is a child and some ones baby and what those men did to her was beyond forgivable and they need to be locked up for a very long time and when they do get out they need to be labeled as child molesters and sexual predators so that they can’t do this to any other child… Any man that is attracted to a 13 year old girl is a pervert. There is no excuse for raping children…

The only thing i will say here for the last 20+ years parents have let the girl(s)from 10+ dress's and put on makeup to look like what ever age send them out on the town.
For those people why get turn on for young girls dressing like a grown woman
then you cry out.
Parents stop sending your young girls out dressed like the sick people like to look at and ect..
Dress your 13 year old girl like a 13 year old girl.
Mom and dad you know what you look sexty dressed in,Stop letting her go out dress like you do.
Yes i know mom,she has to dress to look cool,well ok then.

So let me get this right… You are pretty much saying it's the kids fault if their parents are idiots or in the least didn’t pay enough attention to her to notice she was not at the friends house she said she was at or that the friends parents weren’t at home? Sure why not blame the little girl if her parents are stupid enough to let her do what she wants and wear trashy clothes. And heck if we are going to blame the parents why not blame society as a whole? I mean have you ever seen a bratz doll? Even the bratz babies have mini skirts and belly rings and wear tons of makeup. Why are those things even allowed on the shelves right? Why not ban them and at the same time ban Barbies and bands like the pussycat dolls and rap music and music videos and smutty clothes made for any one under a size 8 and then if we are going to ban that let’s ban little girl beauty pageants because those nutzo pageant moms love to play Barbie with their little girls. I guess it was JonBenet Ramsey’s fault she got raped and murdered too because her parents liked to dress her up and parade her on stage I mean heck I saw pictures of her that she looked 18 other than the fact that she was like 3 feet tall but maybe the person that raped and killed her thought she was a midget or something so let's just blame her or her parents for it and not the person that did it… If we aren't going to take responsibility for our own actions lets blame society and toy manufacturers and record labels and parents and all the poor little girls that get raped. Hey why not? Let's just blame every one but the three men that raped a 13 year old girl right? I mean surely it’s not their fault that they didn’t bother to ask the underage child they were raping to produce some ID to verify that she was in fact 18 before they raped her because that would have made all the difference in the world right?…

No I don’t think kids should dress like adults and No I would never let my kid out of the house dressed up like that but we can’t be with our children all the time and the law is there to protect them from predators and not to take away freedom of choice? As much as I may disagree with someone else letting their child dress a certain way or watch certain things I can state my opinion about how wrong they are all day but can do nothing to change their mind. It's called freedom and you can't force other people to do what you want with their kids. You can only control what your own children do and wear. But it is illegal to rape some one. And it is illegal to have sex with children so these guys are guilty of being child molesters and should go to jail for that… Let them experience how people on the inside treat child rapists and then they will get to see first hand what they did to her…

Innocent until proven guilty...ever heard of this? It's just as possible that these YOUNG men are innocent. Did they do any tests on her? If not, then how do you know it to be true? By hearsay? Or were you there and you witnessed it firsthand?

By the way, if she was indeed RAPED, then sure, they should pay for what they did. M heart goes out to her if she's telling the truth and my heart goes out to the young men if they're innocent.

You're right and what people don't think of is if theylet their daughters dress "older", an 18 year old is still immature enough to treat the young lady the way she is dressed and the way she is acting. In other words, a girl may act all sweet in front of mommy, but once she's out of sight,she's completely different. Girls Gone Wild videos didn't help the situation.

THREE MEN ARE CHARGED WITH RAPE AFTER A SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY.

THE KENTUCKY STATE POLICE SAY THAT THEY RECEIVED A COMPLAINT OF A RAPE AT A PARTY AT A HOME IN MCLEAN COUNTY…WHERE A JUVENILE FEMALE SAID THAT SHE HAD BEEN RAPED BY THE THREE MEN.

WILLIAM DEVINS, JR.,18, OF CALHOUN, WAS CHARGED WITH THREE COUNTS OF SECOND DEGREE RAPE AND THREE COUNTS OF SECOND DEGREE SODOMY. TRAVIS DAME, 19, OF SLAUGHTERS, AND ERIC HAYDEN, 21, OF CALHOUN, WERE EACH CHARGED WITH ONE COUNT OF SECOND DEGREE RAPE.

ALL THREE WERE LODGED IN THE OHIO COUNTY DETENTION CENTER.

KENTUCKY STATE POLICE POST 16 WAS ASSISTED BY STATE POLICE POST TWO IN MADISONVILLE; THE MCLEAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE; AND THE CALHOUN POLICE DEPARTMENT.

*Does two adult men holding a 13 year old girl down while another adult male rapes and sodomises her then the other two men take turns raping her sound like a good time to you? Or a good way to lose your virginity? Young girls are stupid and yeah may act boy crazy or dumb but they are still young girls. Children! Read the other information out there about this case. They were “charged” only one man was allegedly charged and that is because of his age and he claimed he was intoxicated. These men are monsters and deserve to go to jail and have the same thing done to them behind bars by men twice their size too… Sure blame the parents if you want but don’t blame that girl. She was stupid and immature but no one deserves this… How do you know the parents weren’t upstairs asleep clueless to what was going on in their home. Do you watch your kids every second of every day? I know when I was a kid I use to go to friends houses all the time that had older brothers. My friends and I were young and stupid and of course wanted to hang out with the brother and their friends… We certainly didn’t act like girls gone wild though. We were kids just like this little girl was just a kid. Those parents may be great people and that little girl may have been a sweet little girl but no one knows what kinds of people your kids are around all the time. There was an article in the Illinois ppr two weeks ago about a 14 year old girl getting raped and beaten in a restroom at a public restaurant by a registered sex offender while her parents were not even 10 feet away eating their dinner. I guess you would think it was her fault for going to the bathroom by her self hu? Don’t blame the victim blame the monsters that commit the crime… And read all the information on a case before you make comments like that…

Katiebell,
Read between the lines in my opening comment. Innocent until proven guilty!! An 18 year old was arrested for rape a month or so ago in Webster County. I'm giving no names, they've already gone to court. It appears the young lady is getting her story mixed up a bit. It's a shame that even if he can prove his innocence, she has selfishly tarnished his name.
As for the 14 year old you're speaking of...if they actually held her down and raped her, then they should all three be prosecuted.

You're right. You know, I feel sorry for the younger ones these days because of their influences. Videos, movies, the clothing industry. These influences have taught the younger ones how to act and dress. They don't have a chance to be young, they've been deprived of that because of the older generation. What's real gross is when you think of dads that look at their daughter's friends in a way that they shouldn't. Ladies, if you've got a daughter and a husband, watch his eyes when her friends are around. Think I'm joking? Just watch his eyes. I kid you not.

Did you not ever go out and your parents not know where you were? How do you know that this girls parents didn't think that she was at another 13 year old friends' house? Little teenage girls can be very sneaky!

You know, you need to try to think on both sides of the fence sometimes. I don't have all of the answers but being a parent myself, I try not to immediately crucify the parents if possible! Never think that even your kids won't do things you don't know about. I don't think you would appreciate people calling for your imprisonment when they get out behind your back and make mistakes.
