Living and Kombat,this is how pedophiles work- its called grooming-it sounds like when this 12 year old was around sleazebucket Richard, he had plenty of opportunties to do just that. In child rape , the rapist does everything he can to win the child's trust- he may say your mother is mean to you- you can talk to me-then the gifts and sexual abuse next. Pedophiles pick kids because they wont talk and when the situation comes out, it looks good for the rapist because people say= Oh she participated so she is as bad as he is. Wrong!This is age 12, she was made to think this man was trustworthy-that is how they work their victims. They take innocent kids who think a friend would not hurt them , and when the abuse starts the victim is afraid to tell anyone,because usually the rapist has threatenened them or their family- and they are ashamed. How do you think Jerry Sandusky got started -he had poor victim he showered with gifts. Lock this man up now, dont blame the victim!

@ exofDevola I would like to say you are one of the few who use the term pedophile correct.Pedophiles are monsters who force children under the age of 13 to have sex.A 12 year old girl is just that a 12 year old girl and it doesn't matter how mature she acts.

Again- kids from homes with less than adequate supervision- i.e.--- kids having kids etc. Saddest part of this area.

I wasn't blaming the victim. I was stating a fact that if she doesn't know how, at 12 years old, to ward off this type of attack, and that it is very wrong, she needs to be protected from it by any means possible. Children should be fully aware, by school age, that it is not ok to have sexual relations at the age of 12. I taught my children about pedophiles when they started to go to school, because they were leaving the security of their home and their family.

Also, the article states that *****graphic photos were being exchanged....remotely. I stand by my statement that the young lady was not being supervised properly, and intervention was needed for her safety!
