The crime is solicitation, and it is unfortunate that this girl was underage, because it leaves me questioning too, where are her parents? However, let me inform you that also unfortunately, he probably DID purposefully look for underage. In 1998 he was a resource officer at Topsail High School and lost his job and badge because he had sexual encounters AND sexually assaulted students ranging from 14-18, some of the older ones consenting, but the 14 year old most definitely did not. 15 years ago, he was much younger, which made the age gap much smaller (though he was still in a position of authority and leadership, therefore should have never initiated such conduct or responded the way he did. But now, he is 15 years older, which makes him more than 20 years this girls senior. He is sick and twisted, and he has always has an attraction to younger girls, and unfortunately lacked the self-control and respect to not act upon it. He is a repeat offender when it comes to minors. Which with it being 15 years since I know of his last conviction for sexual misconduct with a minor, it makes me question how many have gone unreported between now and then. Just thought you would find that interesting.
