So what if you pick up a hooker on the corner and she turns out to be 16. Are you a Rapist if she gives you a hummer for $20?

Yes you are. And a pedophile, and illegally engaging in prostitution. Not to mention even worse contributing to human trafficking. It's attitudes like this that cause this to be a problem. Sex trafficking is a horrific and cruel crime and no one chooses to be trafficked, that is why it's a crime. I would urge you that if you have a daughter, wife, girlfriend or mother and put them in the place of these victims, you might think a lot different about the situation. Don't think for a second that any female is not vulnerable to this kind of act. I've left you a list of resources to educate yourself on the topic.....

So Please tell me why what the two Garramone brothers did is any differant? Why were they able to be given such a deal as to where they only get probation and do not have to register as SEX OFFENDERS? Christian had SEX with the underage girl and Devin was sending EXPLICIT SEXUAL messages and yet these two PEDOPHILES are let go with no more than a slap on the wrist and let go to prey on some more of our young children. Why? This sort of thing makes you wonder if the DA is actually against this or maybe he himself is involved. Hmmm.

Yep, it's not a crime to be a prostie any more, just to patronize one. Or so it seems.

They will plead they didn't know she was a minor.some of them will walk. They will rat out some of the leaders but the rest will pay fines and house arrest. The young girl was mixed up and probably has mental issues.probably no good upbringing. Bad parents,they should be charged too.

The facts are she the victim admitted that she stated that she was older than her age so as not to scare off the guys she was trying to get money from. She also stated that she dressed to look the role as well. My question now is did antone know at the time that the girl was a minor??

The facts will always come out. The OD stated that the true age of the girl was never mentioned so then who if anyone new her true age. If indeed she was that drugged and helpless how did she get away? Also if as stated she was rescued by police in Feb there were no arrests made at that time. A rescue under these circumstances and nothing done does not make any sense.

I didn't see anything about drugged and helpless. A rescue doesn't mean she was in the act of something sexual at that moment. It could have been as simple as an investigation and they "rescued her" when they thought the time was right. Obviously there is an investigation still going on and I'm sure more victims unfortunately will pop up and more arrests will follow. Not everything makes the news and papers. I have family in law enforcement and I hear all kinds of crap and most of it no one knows. It doesn't make the papers and it doesn't make the news.

It's crazy what if they didn't know her age? I do NOT think they would be Rapists then! They were paying for a service and if they didnt know her age then they should not be RAPISTS!!! The people that go ther addicted then put her out yes, they are scumbags but just because he picks up a corn hill hooker doesnt make them rapists!!! I men you say get it here's $20 do your thing. I have used hookers several times when I was younger and nver once thought to ask for ID! It's the oldest business in the world, it is even legal in parts of Nevada. Unless they knew her age they shouldn't be charged with RAPE!!! You don't ask a crackout hooker for ID before she blows you!!!

Could you POSSIBLY use a LITTLE punctuation here and there? A million question marks strung together don't make up for the complete lack of commas and periods. Your post is next to unreadable.

With the way the city is run they probably gave these people a permit to run this operation, and if they didn't I'm sure the city will try to capitalize by having them charged with running operation without a permit.
