    I hope the da does not give him a plea deal. He should do jail time!!!

  • Cant believe this says:

    This pos is out & FREE! Just opened up a auto repair shop in my community of Bridgeton, NC in the New Bern area. You can’t run from your sickness! Knew something was off about him. Glad I did some research.

    Anybody that messes with kids is less than human and doesn’t deserve to be on this plant any longer.

    They never get the punishment they deserve.

    I am kind. Jesus sat with the worst and took up their cause. We should do the same no matter their crime…that is the TRUE NATURE of being a Christian. He allegedly did a monstrous thing and must pay the price for it. Trust me, if the family (that apparently was nonexistent throughout all this) gets behind her, she will heal. No need to get bogged down in semantics, suffice it to say we ALL need a healing. You take care, and indeed God Bless you as well.

    If God does all things for his glory….just wow. How can you even consider child rape a thing for God’s glory. If you follow up with some blanket statement about trusting in His plan, I may vomit. Maybe he told her that as he raped her, it’s okay honey, God ha a plan. disgusting.

  • Sober1 says:

    My first order of business has been to get sober and counseling after being sexually abused as a child. I have forgiven my RAPISTS and they were not oppressor’s, they were RAPISTS. It’s going to be hard to forgive this monster but I will be working on that with GOD’s love to guide me. I am glad you are a survivor. Maybe you could be a little kinder to other survivor’s since you know how it feels. I’ll pray for this monster if you pray for the girl he raped. GOD BLESS YOU Layton.

  • Layton says:

    Good for you and your recovery. Nonetheless, He does things for His glory not yours or “I”. If God has done a true work in you, then the first order of business would have been forgiveness in your heart for your oppressor. Sounds to me you are not quite there yet. His grace enables us to be restored and in turn restore others. Pray for this guy, not damn him, that is not your job. Oh and by the way, I am also a survivor.

  • Guest2020 says:

    It would help if the news story clarified that point. I am guessing that she is nine now.

  • Shame says:

    I sadly know this guy, she was 3 when it started bc that would be the time he married the girls mother we all knew he was weird..

  • guest01010 says:

    How did the girl not age over the 6 year period?

  • Sober1 says:

    I know who I am.
    I am a child sexual abuse survivor.
    GOD loves me and I am survivor in spite of the horrible things that were done to me as a child.
    I am proud of myself and what I have survived.

  • Layton says:

    Who do you think you are! The dangers of Lust await the UNREPENTANT SINNER at only the Second ring of hell. Arrogance and Hypocrisy are much lower at the Eight ring, closer to the heart and tomb of Satan. The Grace of God is available to any man at any time as long as he draw breath, read your bible and quit attempting to throw stones while living in a glass house! This man, despicable as his alleged crime is, deserves justice and mercy like everyone, including you.

  • lonetraveler says:

    should not even matter. She is a child and someone or ones totally failed to protect her. This despicable piece of excrement needs to be put away, that is the only way to protect the children. He DOES NOT deserve the grace of God or anyone else. I feel sure that God does not condone the rape of children.

  • Sober1 says:

    Please pray for this young girl.
    She has a very long hard struggle ahead of her.
    Please pray for her sanity and strength.
    Please pray for her to live in a loving, safe home.
    Please pray that she has the opportunity to go to counseling so she can live the life she deserves.
    She has every right to a beautiful life.

    This monster took part of her life away but GOD can give it back to her and

    I will pray for this monster to spend his life in prison or if he would like to kill himself that would be even better.
    Satan is waiting Lloyd. . .
