I am by no means condoning what has happened, but we do not know the whole story! Was the girl 14? Because last November he was only 15...

I am just saying unless this young girl was not willing, if she is of age, how are we to know that she did not start the act?!
Even if the majority of people do not want to admit it, but 3/4 of children today are having sex before they are 16 willingly!

We need the whole story on this one!

I agree Alicia. I for one know what I was doing at 15...If the girl is of reasonable age and he is still found guilty the poor guy will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years and be considered a felon. We need to re-visit the offender laws and criminalize the real perverts and let the ones who engage in consential acts alone.

I, for one am a staunch Christian Conservative and I think they should take him outside and shoot him for such dispicable acts. Real Conservatives do not support this type of behavior, no matter how old she was. God will send him to hell for his deeds.

I am a friend of the family. The child is nine. The "poor guy" you refer to is in fact a child predator. This was in no way a consensual act, this was a crime against a child! He deserves everything he gets including having to put his name on the list of sex offenders because that's what he is. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and walks like a duck, it MUST BE a duck. I for one hope they throw the book at him.

i for one am glad he is were he is. Back in nov of 2008 him and my son had an altercation because JT was going to do it with his sister who was only 7 at the time and no where near sexually active.I personally know the little girl who was only 8.

Slippery slope here, folks! Is 15 years old OK for sex? How about 15 1/2, or 14, or 13? You have to draw a line somewhere. Currently that line is 16 - period. Would anyone be making the same point if the perpetrator was 26 or 36 and not 16? Is it about the age of the victim or if our prejudices are comparing the ages of both of those involved?

as far as the post from shannon davis back in nov 2008 this is the boy that got stabbed in the heart by her son over something entirely different it had nothing to do with what she has stated.

I am glad he finally going to get whats coming to him. If the law enforcement would have done there job right to start with J.T would have already been in jail. But now maybe justice will be done. We will be able to sleep now knowing that a child molester is off the streets.

to concerned citizen this boy threatened my son to f__ his sister in the butt,who was only 7 at this time and to even to say something like that is impostrise and perverted. And yes this is different but also JT is a bully and there is a police report stating JT cut my son when he was only 11. And no I dont think what my son did was right but also defending yourself is not a crime either.

The VICTIM in this case is NINE years old. Did you miss that part April? And Jonathan was 16 at the time. This didn't happen in 2008, it happened in November 2009. Two months ago.

And he knew EXACTLY how old she was. Both families involved had known each other for years. He KNEW exactly what he was doing and he deserves to be where he's at. Get your facts straight before you stick your foot any further down your throat.
