It really does not matter one way or another if this girl say yes and agreed to sleep with this loser. In Ohio, the age of consent is not 15. It is 16, and mr. Sleaze bucket knew of the girls age. He said it concerned him, but evidently not enough.. I have no idea if this girl liked this guy enough to go someplace and drink. That is not in the story, we don't know if the creep pretended to be a friend for him to confide in, and then convinced her she needed to have a drink with him.Also we don't know where the parents were but if they had known this girl was running around with a man more than twice her age, i am sure they would not say it was okay.New world and josh, it is up to the parents to keep track of their children, you can blame them all you want. The only adult in this scenario was the 32 year old , he clearly did not care enough not to try avoid a girl that young. I don't feel sorry for him, he deserves what he gets. Why blame underage girl ,not the 32 year old predator?

This seems to be a recurring theme in Marietta. I think it's time that we do something about it. I grew up here and remember many girls in my middle school class "dating" much older, sleezy guys that would give girls that come from loving home environments the creeps. Every single one of the girls that I knew dating older guys had abusive and/or neglectful parents. It's time for us to step up, impose harsher punishment on the perverts, and let the girls know that they are cared about so they don't go seeking attention wherever they can get it.

Another one of your innocent little girls playing grown up. People need to keep a tighter leash to control your kids.

(Girl)Hey Mom&Dad meet my new friend he's 32 I'm going to be over at his place" (Mom&Dad)"That's nice dear have a great time " ......... So let me get my facts right: She meets up with him 3 or more times each time she drank and then had sex but it wasn't consensual ? Sounds like a mad young adult trying to get even the guy should have know better the age of consent in Ohio is 16 and the drinking age is 21.
