Wouldn't a 16 year old boy question the need to disrobe in a bedroom, in order to see a train set?

Is the kid retarded?

What this man did was definately wrong and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. To my thinking every normal 14 yr old boy knows "what time of day it is". It should have never happened. Parents please teach your kids to be a little street smart .

I thought their was a law on the books that prohibits bail in sexual assault crimes agains juveniles. I guess most laws don't apply in Carbon County anyway.

It was wrong and illegal and he should pay, plain and simple. Thing I don't understand, however, is why did the kid keep going back for more? I agree with Jake about that. Parents should teach their children about these sorts of things. The kid might be harmed for life now.

Dennis maybe you should get the facts before you make a judgement. If you read the other articles about this you would have realized that the sicko had guns and explosives. Maybe the boy was threatened. Maybe there are things that weren't in the article. Maybe you should get your head out of the clouds, all of you and understand that sometimes street smart means nothing. What about all the kids that are molested by family members or "friends of the family".....no street smarts can prepare you for that. Nobody reading this article knows to what degree the boy was threatened. Don't judge the boy. Judge the man who admitted what he had done.

He is a very sick person, and he needs to spend the rest of his life in jail. I hope the young boy will be O.K.
