Thats disgusting. Where were this 13 year olds parents when she was on the internet? Where were the parents that she left the house and met this predator? Where were they that she was able to get on a train with him? This guy is a low life. Figures he cant get someone his own age. I know alot of kids sneak around the parents, but I dont understand how it can get this far out of hand without the parent or guardian realizing anything at all.

Parents need to monitor what their kids are doing on the computer.

same story, different players..
sorry to say this, but if a 13 years old girl meets a guy on the internet and is stupid enough to go meet him, you pretty much know whats going to happen. Unfortunately he should not be charged with rape, she should be charge with stupidity...13 years old is not that young or naive anymore. Funny how the parents of this girl knew where to find her, so why didn't they stop her before she left??? Why didn't they monitor her activities more closely???

If you could read, the article said he is 20 and his address is 27...What difference does it make anyway?

What a creep. I agree, where were the parents? Not that I am blaming them, but they are responsible for keeping an eye on what their daughter is going on the computer. I have a friend who has a 15 year old, 12 year old and 8 year old and the computer is kept in the living room where everyone can see what is going on and she regularly checks up on what they are doing and have been doing. That is what a good parent is supposed to do.

I agree.. thats where mine is also. I have a 13 year old. Im not foolish as to think I can monitor his every move, but I damn sure do my best. We also only allow him to use the computer between 7-8 (and for homework) other times I also sit with him and he shows me who he is talking to and whos on his different friend lists. I also show him things like this article to try and show him how real things actually are. Its so sad that something like this was able to get this far.

IF THE PARENTS ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT KNOWS THERE KIDS PASSWORD THEN THE CAN'T GO ON THE INTERNET WHEN THEY ARE NOT HOME. ONLY YOUR PARENTS CAN SIGN YOU ON. THEN YOU CAN LOCKOUT THERE CHATS TO ONLY THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THERE ADDRESS BOOK.NOW THE ONLY ONES THAT CAN HAVE A CHAT ARE THRER FRIENDS.BUT THIS IS TOO MUCH WORK FOR THE PARENTS YOU SEE THEY CAN'T BE BOTHERED BY THERE KIDS.THEY ARE EASY PICKINGS

When my daughter was 13 she had friends that had the hormones of a 25 year old and knew exactly what they wanted and were doing!!alot of us did things with older people when we were younger and it was not considered rape so what has changed? I do feel that a 13 year can consent just the same as a 20 year old to the same act and are smart enough to know what they are doing. Now if there was force or violence used that is rape.It does sound like both consented and she was not kidnapped and now someones life has changed forever.It kind of seems like rape comes up after the girls get caught and don't want to get in trouble. parents just need to be more involves as to what is going on!

Some of these kids ask for it. They way they dress and act. Go to a 13 year old's Myspace page and see what they are writing about-SEX!!!

The only way to stop child predators is public torture. As crue as it sounds...they must think twice. They are harming kids for life.

The girl (far from innocent) does not have to press charges, or "cry rape". Having sex with a person of this age is against the law (statutory rape). Even if she did consent, it is still illegal. She gets grounded, he gets sent away. What's wrong with this picture?
