Seriously...REMEMBER INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!! It's a shame that our society has lost its once JUSTICE based system. It doesn't matter if your guilty or not, what matters is how much you can pay lawyers. I would ask that you have some sympathy for his family in this time of horror! He is innocent until proven guilty!! Then you may have your moment of saying what you feel is appropriate. Honestly the paper should not even be able to publish this until he is proven guilty...because all of these people will start looking at him differently. The police are over zealous looking for these offenders and do make mistakes...so please until he is proven guilty in a court of law!!

I agree American citizens are give certain rights one of which is is they INNOCENT until proven guilty. The poster here is being his judge, jury and executioner. Put him to death or rape him, God how insane not to mention totally redneck. Have you ever met this young man? It would surprise to know that he is a kind considerate, loving person who would never harm anyone. Robert Wharff will reach out and help anyone in need. Instead of judging him have feelings of compassion for his family who have to see his picture plastered all over the front page of a newspaper that also printed their address. Leaving them a sitting duck duck for redneck jerks who are making themselves their son's executioner. Guilty by association, guilty by the press, guilty by the executioner : public opinion. The public's right to know does not includes the home addresses of someone arrested of a crime. They should not be allowed to report on arrests but on convictions. How can he recieve a fair trial in Nicholasville now? How many people are unjustly arrested everyday? How many are acquitted? His reputation is now bemerched. He will be treated like a pervert a deviant when he has been injustly accused. His family has not been charged with any crime what of them? Also OMG try spell check your post is almost unreadable, which leads credence to the nasty rumor of illiteracy being rampant in Ky.

He don't mean St to you but yet you came on here again and posted something! People are accused and arrested and wrongly jailed all the time....mistakes happen. Plus think about it...a child is anyone under 18... I can think of lots of high school girls/boys messing with 20+ year olds!
So Like I said before Innocent until proven Guilty dude. Then come on here and run your potty no good mouth!

THANK YOU OMG2- I will address my comments to the nasty jerk leaving messages about someone merely accused. How many times have you read about people being released after being unjustly accused? The are several accused murderers who have been released after years in prison due to overzealous police officals who have bungled an investigation. Quit running your nasty mouth about things you know nothing of! First I am not a pediphile I have known Robert for over 20 years. I know he would never do what he is accused of. Computers can be hacked into identities stolen etc. Quit leaving these foul postings on here. Think of his parents, dealing with more idiots out there that think like you. You accuse someone you have knowledge of I am referring to myself here of a horrible act. I know him personally and care a great deal about the young man I WILL NOT HAVE HIM ABUSED especially since he has not been found guilty in a court of law; merely accused. His family should not have to be put through this crud. As for you mispelling a few words everyone does, but not so its unreadable there are literacy programs available.Unless of you are not only illiterate but inbred. Let the courts decide whether or not he's guilty; not some jerk on Topix. His guilt will have to be PROVEN to me. The justice system has to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he knowing possessed and distributed said material as defined in Ky revised code. What if your civil rights and liberties were taken from you? Which is exactly what you want to do to him. Take a history and civics course, learn the basis our country was built upon. Let the courts and a jury of his peers as defined in the constitution decide; then your entitled to your opinion until then SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!

<quoted text>I am Robert Wharff's aunt. I want everyone especially OMG to know something. He is a terrific young man, not only my nephew but my friend. I can not begin to tell you of all of his kindnesses. He would NEVER hurt a child or anyone else. I will NOT TOLERATE anyone abusing him. I love him dearly as much as if he were my own child. I can't even imagine the horror his poor mother and father are going through. Not only to have their child who is innocent of all he is accused of ripped from them; but dear God having to put up with a loser like OMG spewing hate and violence. Computers are easy to be hacked into. I am asking please OMG stop putting this garbage on here. My brother and sister -in-law are suffering enough, STOP NOW. My nephew who has done nothing wrong is suffering. This the worst nightmare I have ever seen.Put yourself in his families place for just a second. Your home is invaded, possessions confiscated. Then with no warning your child is ripped from you. Then a lawyer wanting a $10,000 retainer,you're allowed limited access to your child who is more than likely terrified. On top of that, publicity. To matters worse the hate postings.PLEASE STOP!
you know what i can respect that and although i don't agree with any of you i will not say anything else about this man until he is proven guilty. What's so wrong with wanting all these monsters off the streets?? It burns me up to think someone would hurt a child or want a child sexually but ok i promise to back off and i will leave it to the law.

Thank you. There is nothing wrong with wanting child abusers off the street. I know how easy it is to hack a computer mine was hacked once. Thank you for stopping until the courts decide

this could happen to you
When downloading a shared file, one of the inherent dangers is to unknowingly download a computer virus (that can quietly spread to others from you) or a Trojan horse (a program that claims to do one thing but actually does another) onto your computer. These can cause all kinds of problems from erasing files on the hard drive to automatically sending pornographic email to all of the friends you have listed in your mail directory

to all people who belive what they hear from the media do you belive big foot walked in front of the tv screen . or more close to home do you trust in a goverment that hides so many things from the public . to keep jobs afloat for the us goverment after 9/11 with new homeland security. what wont they do to peoples lives dont belive everything you hear on tv . or about people that you might pre judge. they hide behind the internet seting up webs for unknowing people. like on lime wire or other file shareing networks . when the internet can be hacked at any time just like at the pentagon hope your not on there list.

I will say that I too know of individuals who have been found guilty of crimes they never committed. Innocent until proven guilty is no longer an option anymore in todays society. People ASSUME to only see guilty until proven otherwise however because of the cruel world we live in today regardless of the outcome the accused will forever be guilty due to the process of corrupt media and social network.

I do not know this man or whether he is guilty or innocent. That is not for us to decide, however, his family should never be brought into any of the horrible things that are being said on here. No matter his upbringing, an adult will make their own decisions and they alone must live with those decisions. For now, until the courts decide who and if there are victims of this man, his family has became the victim of this public scrutiny which is completely and absolutely wrong. Regardless of his guilt or innocence, a family should always support each other through not only the good times, but especially the bad. As a native from Nicholasville, please know that we all are not like the self-proclaimed rednecks on here and I am deeply saddened for what this site and the overall publicity has said and for what the family is going through. I will continue to pray for this family as I could not even begin to imagine what you all must be going through. I hope everything works out and you reach the outcome that you're hoping for. Don't let the rants and opinions of others break your strength as a family.

I believe you promised no more postings so much for honesty in KY. How would you like to be his mother reading this crap. As for being a dumbass I have an IQ of 165. I am only defending my brother and his families right to peace of mind. Robert is innocent until proven guilty. Do you have access to the prosecutions evidence. Until you do SHUT UP!!! As I said put yourself in their shoes a few minutes. Your and some other postings are cruel and harmful.

Do you have copies of the prosecuter's evidence or were you purchasing said videos? Since his family doesnt even know all the particulars I'm interested in knowing where you get your information. If its from the prosecuter's office thats grounds for a mistrial. Robert can't read these postings from his current location, so the only one your harming is his mother. BACK OFF!!!!!!

Okay so you are a female redneck minor LIAR maybe mommy and daddy should ground you from the pc . Minors do not have the same constitutional rights as adults. I do not live in Lexington or even in KY because it is a screwed up state.Since you are underage why arent you in school? I guess that explains the spelling problem. I am saying these hate postings are cruel to his mother who has dome nothing and Robert will be judged by a jury of his peers not a bunch of illiterate rednecks.Get real child he cant read this stuff his mother can. What crime did she commit? I am an adult and I do have freedom of speech. Evidently you upbringing do lack something called respect, not to mention compassion
As for my being stupid wrong again child IQ of 165 ability to read at 600 words per minute. It is also not polite to tell your elders to shut up. I reminded of your promise so I guess you lie too.
