Consider the background of not just her, but him as well. Do the parents even know what and where there child comes and goes. This could have been prevented, starting at home.

It could have, if the foster parent would have bothered taking the time to give a shit, instead of just collecting a check.

Child rape cannot always be prevented with predators every where you look these days,but their guardians are the only ones between these monsters and the kids.

I have to say bullshit. She knew how old he was and still is. He is not the first underage boy she had a "relationship" with, I personally know the boy and other boys that has had dealings with this nasty woman. Your right the boys parents were okay with it, which in my mind is disgusting. But not as disgusting as April for messing with these boys. She continued to mess with him after she was arrested and after she moved away to a new town where no one knew what she is. This woman is sick and needs help!!!

First off a young man can lie about his age but come on now you cant convince me that she didnt know his age....You could tell by looking at him that he was not of age...Besides that it was one of her kids friends...As for the ex husband not being there that is no excuse PERIOD that doesnt give her a reason for messing with a young child...How can he be blamed at all he was young and this older woman is attracted to him what teenage boy would not think this is cool....As for his parents yes they should have kept better tabs on who he was hanging around with...I dont think I ever heard an outcome in this case but they should have done to her what they would do any man who did such a thing....SHAME ON YOU APRIL
