Gee, I hope they make the Victoria Secret's window really racy this week. I'm taking my kids up to Clay Terrace and I want them to be exposed to all the sexy stuff at an early age so they can turn out just like that girl and guy. NOT! Isn't it funny how about 500 people commented yesterday on the VS window in that thread, but people reading this story don't seem to make the connection.
It's parents like you that in the end are responsible for many cases like these. Keep your little ones sheltered and they will be like this 13 yr old each and everytime they get a taste of freedom. Give them to much freedom and the sexual playground becomes a free for all.

I pity your child(ren) for their lack in the freedom of understanding life. WTH can seeing some under wear do to their little minds be it VS or Walmarrt???

She first cries rape. Then she admits to having sex, and not only THAT time but others as well. And oral sex too. So, think back......girls start their periods as young as 8 and 9 now. They start EVERYTHING younger now......not to hard to imagine that she was a willing partner. His mistake? Not running as far from this jail bait as possible! Foolish young man.
Exactly correct. If every underaged female went to the police with a list of "boyfriends" over 18, half the population of males would be in jail. 40 years? Give me a break!

This is ridiculous...

1. A 19 year old should be trying to score with someone closer to their age....Or Older...

2. They should not even be thinking about knocking boots with a 13 year old...

3. But since they both agreed to sex many times...Jail is not the answer for this kid who's life is no doubt, close to ruins at this point.

It's ridiculous this stuff even makes "news". It should be a private matter, this kid is in no way a threat to society!

19 and 13? SICK. The fact that you find young girls 'hot' is even more sick.
I'm not making excuses for the defendant because he should have known better than to have sex with a minor, and he deserves whatever punishment he gets as a result of this.
There are twelve year old girls out there who could pass for twenty, and twenty year old women who look like they've yet to hit puberty. The law has to draw the line somewhere and sex with a thirteen year old should definitely be a crime, but it's entirely possible that the only way to know that she was so young was to look at her birth certificate.

hasn't anyone seen photographs of lindsay lohan's 13 year old sister? she looks like she's about 30 - ridden hard and put away wet. there are many girls of a similar age who do look like they're significantly older than they are. it states nowhere in the article that the girl lied about her age, though it is a definite possibility.

the state of indiana is in shambles for many other things - poor economy, terrible job market, vicious murders, panhandlers on every corner downtown. yes, the 19 year old in question did something extremely foolish, but does he really need to go to jail for something consensual? put him on probation, and slap his name on the sex offenders registry.

I dont think her 'boyfriend' is the one she said raped her...that information just happened to come out during the questioning.

If this is the case then this is SIMPLY a case of kids doing what they have for thousands of years, experimenting with sex, and if so, let them alone so they can have normal lives and raise normal kids. Stop the damned witch-hunt before you kill all our kids.
Six years isn't three or four. Barbie was right. Math is hard.

Hey all you math wizards... read the article. He is 19 now. She was 13 in March 2006. That means he was 18 and perhaps even 17 at the time of the encounters. Regardless of the age of consent in Indiana, there is NO WAY that consenual sex at those ages deserves 40 years in prison. She doesn't sound like a victom to me.

While 13 is WAY too young to be having sex, this doesn't sound like rape. It sounds like two stupid kids having premarital consentual sex. 40 years is ridiculous, unless of course it comes out that this was rape. But sex every week for six months while they're dating doesn't sound like rape.

EXACTLY! Why on earth would parent(s) let a 13 year old date---if so, especially with a 19 year old! And why wasn't she made aware of the "birds & bees". This young man was a high school senior. He would be able to find what grade of school she is in if she was lying to him about her age. He could at least find out if she was old enough to be a consenting adult! Seems as if everyone involved did nothing. Hope (guess) she didn't get pregnant. It is gratifying to know, however, that all publicity in this area does NOT happen in INDPLS. No parent should gloat over their child--we are not with them 24/7--who knows what they will do!

This 19 year old doesn't seem like the brightest crayon in the box anyway. I mean... don't MOST kids graduate when they're 17? At most 18? He's still a SENIOR and he's 19? WCHS FORCED my son leave school when he turned 18, when it didn't look like he would graduate THAT SPRING (he would have been a few credits short, therefore would have graduated the following winter - while still 18)
Point is... has anyone checked this boys' IQ? Perhaps he's operating on the same "intellectual level" as this young girl. Doesn't make it OK, but it would make it a bit more logical in HIS mind. Cause if he isn't "mentally challenged" then he deserves a long prison term, long probation and a spot on the sexual registry. If he is, then I'd say the latter 2 are options to consider.

Whats wrong with you people? She's 13! Consensual or not a 19 year old should have more sense than that. If he can't figure out at 19 that he shouldnt be sleeping with pre-teens then when will he? Who's to say he won't do the same thing at 25?
