    Sounds to me this girl liked having sex, if she didn’t she or the parents would have reported this after the first couple of times…..if this was a women doing a 15 year old boy, she’d get a slap on the wrist, this guy won’t see the light of days for decades……

    Back in the day, families hush this stuff up and married their daughters off to avoid shame. Now it’s out of the closet. I don’t care what this young girls background is, he’s a predator thru and thru and she’s still an influenceable child. Period.

    This has been ongoing. When my girls were in their early teens he provided them with alcohol and prescription drugs. They are in their twenties now and told me stories. I tried keeping him from my kids and made complaints. Glad he’s finally caught.


    She did not get what she wanted and reported him, THAT’S WHAT THESE INNOCENT GIRLS DO!

    imprecise wording here, “beginning in 2015 when she was 15 until now, would have been a better way to phrase that.”

    Surely he wasn’t her first! Where was this girls parents? Doing h e r o i n? How does this go unnoticed?!?!?
