Gross! Both the fact that the guy followed the boy around AND that the boy is 13 and his mom is dating a 21 year old...I'm going to assume mom is at least in her late 20s, probably early 30s.

The "sleepwalking defense" is destined to go down with "the twinkie defense" and "the LSD selective memory loss defense" as another milestone in American legal history. Is this a great country, or what?

The only good news in this story is that they at least believe the boy. Sleepwalking, in the nude, what a jerk. Hopefully the father tries to arrange to not have to let him stay there anymore. At least until he knows there are no weirdos living there also.

Sleep walking? Sure, whatever works. And, of course, for such stalwart citizens, bad behavior is always the fault of someone or something else. These clowns never have large enough gones to admit that whatever happened was their fault and that they were standing up to that fact. Absolutely, amazing!

Yet another reason why you don't "date" if you have children.

This guy's story sounds fishy. We'd better all email it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Anyone ever see Stepbrothers? The sleepwalking scene in that movie are classic!

This story sounds crazy but I have a friend who took Ambien and ended up putting his arse through a wall thinking he was sitting down on a chair. That stuff'll mess you up good.

Thats just gross. I can't believe the mother is believing the boyfriend.

Ladies if you have children, you dont necessarily NEED a man to make you happy. If you feel you need a man to make your life complete get some counseling. This seems to be a recurring pattern.

One question: After receiving the son's call, why didn't dad put "Desta the Molesta" in the local I.C.U.?

If that were my boy, sleepwalking would be *the least* of Desta's medical problems.

What a horrible story to read. We are a sick society that allows children to be put into harm's way like this. However...

Mom: How can you even think of supporting that loser?

Son: Congratulations. You seem like the only person with a good head on their shoulders.

Dad: Do not ever let you son go back there again.

Sicko: Keep denying what you did. After you are found guilty and invited to stay at the local county jail for the next 12 months, you do know what they do to pedophiles there, right? Let's hope they do it double to you.

I knew it was too good to be true. All this week the PP has has morally uplifting, feel-good stories about the advancements of gays, lebians and bixsexuals in our oppressive culture. Then they have to go and ruin their good record by putting some garbage, homophobic, anti-gay story like this in the paper. This would not be a story if it weren't for a gay man being the protagonist. How sad the PP has to stoop so low as to do this. Just when I think they are turning a corner for the better they go and do this.

I can't believe some of the violent, anti-gay comments that many of our so-called "civilized" readers are making!

I'm no sleepwalking expert but the whole "following around" thing doesn't sound right.

And you right-wing nutjobs wonder why we need segregated schools for our gay students? Just look at the awful, homophobic comments made in this thread already. And the fact that this "story" is a story to begin with is the first problem. This poor man has to suffer a life being a closeted gay man living in redneck, uneducated rural Minnesota and he has to pretend to be straight and have a girlfriend. This guy has suffered enough.
