I got my information from the article attached to this thread. Where should I get it from?
And no one calls 'fondling' "rape". It is called 'sexual assault'. "Rape" implies penetration of some sort, not to be too crude about it.
Bingo -- the charge was sexual assault. See, you don't know what you're talking about.

From the article:
"On the eve of his arrest, he was excited about a fair coming to town and asked a neighbor if he could mow her lawn to make a few dollars. She found him in the back shed fondling her 6-year-old stepson. When the police arrived, they read Hart his rights, and he confessed to what he'd done. As they transported him to jail, he asked repeatedly whether he'd get paid for mowing the lawn."
Do you know something the rest of us don't? Or did you not bother to read the article?
I know more than what's in that article, and most of the people here in Paris do, too.

You might direct that advice to Chicago Guy. He needs it more than I do.
