Oh, sorry I think they changed the text….I know it read the victim was 15 at the time in yesterday’s post.

I know this person. And I cant believe he would do this to this young lady. He always had a gf that was old enough. Im not trying to stick up for what he did. But you know now a days you have to check ids just because young girls are developing much faster and and acting like young adults.

I knew this dude, and don’t get me wrong, he was weird as hell, but not a rapist. this just pisses me off being the second person I know being sent to prison over arguable motivation. the first being a decent friend of mine. don’t get me wrong, the age difference is a little large, her being 15, not 13, but nothing that should result in years of prison, much less being registered as a sex offender for 30 years. just because the media has set personal age restriction views on it, doesn’t give you the right to be an uneducated bigot on the situation.

As the mother of four sons, I know exactly how old some of the girls look at 15 and younger. I have met girls that I would have sworn were at least 17 or 18 and then found out they were only 14 or 15 years old…makeup,ample cleavage, short shorts, and even tattoos can make a girl look older than she really is….Way back when I was 13, I could pass for 16 years old fairly easily and did so, on occasion.
I’m NOT justifying the event, but I think that there is more to this story than the average person knows and it will eventually come out. IF he was actually her boyfriend, if the sex was consensual, and she was 15 (as some have suggested in other comments)and he was 18, then he should NOT have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
And YES, I am using articles like this as a teaching tool to explain to my sons the importance of knowing exactly how old a girl is before they get too friendly!

This guy is a punk. I wonder if the ConfidenceKilla’s confidence will be hurt once he’s been taken advantage of a few times behind bars. He sure is pretty… he’ll make someone a lovely girlfriend.
