    Hate to tell you people but 14 year old girls are all ready doing porn for their 14 year old boyfriends too !

      you’re absolutely right.. they go as young as 10 and 11 yrs. old.. I have a 12 yr. old daughter, and won’t allow her to have certain friends b/c they want to act and dress like they’re 25. Yes i’m that snoopy mom that knows the passwords to their facebook account, kik account, tweeter account, and any other account they want or plan on getting. I meet all of their friends, and have been known to ride by if they’re staying the night at a friends house to make sure they’re there and safe. Can’t be to safe this day in time.

        What I think is wrong with a lot of this that I really just became aware of is that to have a facebook account you have to be 18 so in other words there are a lot of girls boys and whatever out here representing themselves as being a lot older because they have to lie about their age to get an account and in most of these the parent is very well aware of the lie. I refuse to blame the girl though becuse he should have made sure how old she was and if you’re daughter is 12 and has a face book account then she had to lie about her age also

      So your blaming a lil girl because she was manipulated and raped. This a hole should have self control (period). NASTY

        I’m am not saying that it is the case here, but you do know that 14 year old girls are quite capable of lying and representing themselves as being older. I wouldn’t be so quick to judge this guy. It takes two to make this happen 23 times.

    It is not the fault of the girl. He should know better. If she is under 18, she is off limits. What is wrong with him that he can’t get a girl his own age?

    • Wally the Engineer

      Well, take a look at him… I doubt to many women his age would want to mess around with him. This young girl, who probably has “Daddy issues” to start with, was enamored with the ATTENTION he paid to her. I would also venture to say that he might not have known just how YOUNG she was to start with.

    This is my sister you people are saying negative things about and my sister is not a porn star she was manipulated by this nasty man and is in no way a porn star so if you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t say it at all thank you

      • Kristin

        We tried everything we could to stop this but he kept trying and trying. We tried everything even taking a restraining border out on him and it didn’t work he continued to contact my sister

    I know this guy, his friends/family, and the girl. the girl wasn’t raped and the mother of the girl was very aware that this was going on and gave them permission to continue doing so. the 14 year old girl got upset with him and decided to turn him in. not justifying his actions at all, of course. just saying, she’s not innocent and her mother definitely isn’t either.
